Blockchaining offers a decentralised register of ownership by securely recording every transaction in the system. This technology has been in place for a while through cryto-currencies like BitCoin. But the potential for this decentralised register goes beyond this use. There is a potential to revolutionize the security of ownership for an enormous range of high value transactions. During this presentation KPMG will discuss the technical aspects of how Blockchains work, the current uses of Blockchaining and the potential opportunities from a customer, technology and regulatory perspective.
