XBRL US Announce Free ‘Smart Contracts, Blockchain & Data Standards’ Forum in NYC on April 4th

XBRL US has announced a free half-day day forum for financial technologists, investors, analysts, regulators, investor relations professionals and data providers, titled ‘Smart Contracts, Blockchain & Data Standards’ on 4th April. The forum is hosted by Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business, New York, at its 151 E. 25th Street campus and offered through a partnership with CFA Institute. The event is free to all attendees and is designed to help regulators, issuers and financial intermediaries plan ahead for the changes that blockchain and smart contract technology present for financial markets.

Panel discussions will cover blockchain and smart contract fundamentals, in addition to related issues including financing for blockchain projects, public versus private alternatives, the pros and cons of XBRL use in smart contracts, and other topics. Demonstrations of existing blockchain and smart contract initiatives will be shown. Discussions and demos will be led by representatives from Consensys, ItBit, Markit, Nasdaq, Safeguard Scientifics, XBRL US and XBRL International.

Jim Allen, CFA, Head of Capital Markets Policy for the Americas at CFA Institute, commented: “Blockchain technology and smart contracts represent the potential for dramatic changes in capital markets structure, and it is reasonable to conclude that data standards can play an important role. We’re still in early stages of this new industry movement and this forum is designed to provide insights into the technology and raise some of the key issues that financial market participants, especially regulators, need to start thinking about now.”
