A Close Look at the Use of Blockchain Technology in Consumer Finance, with Special Guest Debbie Hoffman, Associate General Counsel, Western Union
After reviewing how blockchain technology operates and the pandemic’s impact on its use, we discuss the technology’s main benefits and regulatory risks; its use in digital identity, anti-money laundering compliance, preventing wire transfer fraud, peer-to-peer lending, and decentralized finance; the role of “smart contracts” in consumer finance; how various companies are using the technology; and the technology’s link to cryptocurrency protocols.
Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel Alan Kaplinsky hosts the conversation.
