The future of finance

More detailed information

You’re correct. Bitcoin won’t ruffle finance’s feathers. 

But there’s a lot more to blockchain and web3 than bitcoin. And chances are that this *will* ruffle finance’s feathers.

In this talk, we explore the wonderful WTF world of Decentralised Finance. What are the building blocks? What are stable coins? 

What if you could use digital assets as collateral? 

How will programmable money affect the future of payments and financial agreements?

These things are both real and futuristic. Together we’ll explore the potential impact of web3 on the world of finance. Can you safely ignore this or should you start exploring?

Clients have called Gerrie accessible, enthusiastic and able to bring complex things in a simple way. He can live with that. He loves challenging the status quo, but is also experienced (read: old) enough to understand the value of common sense. Gerrie has got 25 years of experience in industries that got disrupted by the internet, which makes him a hands-on expert in dealing with the impact of 'digital'. Through his talks and workshops he's inspired and helped a variety of clients, ranging from FMCG corporates to AI start-ups, from government agencies to the World Chambers Congress. While he's in top of digital trends, the words he uses (too) often are 'user', 'why' and 'alignment'. A few years ago, he was so intrigued by blockchain, that he wrote a book about it ('Blockchain is WTF'). Before he fell in love with digital, he wrote about music, made television, founded 2 companies during his 15 years in London and was a civil servant. #generalist
