Bank Members | $199 for first banker - $55 for additional bankers from same bank

Do you tense up when people use terms like blockchain and distributed ledger? Are you quietly bewildered by the idea that a single Bitcoin could be worth tens of thousands of dollars? Would you have trouble explaining the difference between the CDC and a CBDC? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this session is for you. Join us for a non-technical (but fully financial) explanation of what digital currencies are, how they work, and what all the fuss is about. 

This session will give bankers a basic understanding of cryptocurrency topics, including:

  • Do cryptocurrencies really have value?
  • What is Bitcoin?
  • How do Bitcoin processing and mining work?
  • What are some other popular digital currencies and how are they different from Bitcoin?
  • What are stablecoins and how do they hold their value?
  • What is the difference between a stablecoin and a tokenized deposit?
  • What is a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and what would a U.S. version look like?
  • What can I do to help my bank prepare for the proliferation of cryptocurrencies?
