Remittance on Blockchain Webinar Series February 21, 2019
The emergence of Blockchain technology has provided a range of innovative solutions to the financial services industry. Banks and money transfer operators are always looking for ways to reduce transaction costs, mitigate fraud and increase transaction speeds. Blockchain does exactly this because it replaces the centralised business model by cutting out the middleman and simplifying the cross- border payments process.
Remittance on blockchain is fairly a new concept. We need to understand how Cryptocurrencies such as Stellar and Ripple provide an effective measure of settlement and the prospect of a fast, secure and low-cost payments system.
The remittance on blockchain webinar series is a four-part series launched by RemitONE in association with Bitspark, a crypto-financial services provider. Bitspark has pioneered the world’s first blockchain powered end-to-end remittance service in addition to a blockchain auditable feature rich trading exchange.
The purpose of the webinar series was to provide an insight into blockchain adoption for cross border payments and using cryptocurrency for settlement. The 4 part webinar series is packed with valuable information from industry experts.
Here is the breakdown of what we covered in the series along with the links to the webinars.
