Blockchain Technology No Longer Can Be Ignored — Or Can It?
Blockchain technology was born as a disruptive element in the financial sector, conceptualized in 2008 and transacting the first bitcoin in 2009. After 12 years from the first transaction, blockchain is one of the most adopted technologies in the most conservative sector: finance and banks ecosystem.
DeFi stands for decentralised finance and is one of the fastest-growing segments in the world (see defipulse.com, 8000% growth since June 2020). The objective is to use blockchain technologies to automate any financial services products from savings, payments, loans, insurance to complex derivatives, funding startups, and even complete rethinking stock exchanges. DeFi can become extremely disruptive to the finance industry because it rethinks capitalism completely.
Crypto are cryptographic tokens that include anything from Bitcoin, Ether,... to NFT (non-fungible tokens for unique pieces like art), votes, stable coins (e.g 1 USDT = $1), or anything you want to tokenize, e.g. diamonds, shipping containers, insurance risk, real estate,...
What executive would not love a product that delivered all the blockchain promises: Increased back-office efficiency; lower transaction costs; greater transparency in asset exchanges; minimized errors; increased security; Add in smart contracts, increased transaction speeds, and greater productivity, and it is no wonder that a blockchain-based economy is on demand. But are you and your company ready for it? If not, the time to think about how blockchain is going to impact your business is now.

A very warm welcome and interesting speakers. I was very pleased to be among such a dynamic group.
Thoughtful discussion among experienced leaders regarding current challenges and complexities, and valuable exchange of pragmatic approaches and best practices. Well organized and facilitated.
I love the engaging format of the councils. Very high level discussions and never a sales pitch. The C-Vision staff members are amazing.
The process was very well organized by C-Vision. Perfect organization, honest and authentic speakers of high level.
A group very focused in bringing diversity to the discussion table
Intimate, immersive experiences provided by a group of individuals always available to support our needs. Fantastic organization and very high level executives. The promise was delivered!
C-vision's events combine relevant topics with a suitable audience. I found great value at my last attendance, and would definitely consider upcoming events.
C-Vision was really professional, responsive, listened, and are very thoughtful in their approach. It showed from the information gathering stage, to the planning stage, and then with execution. I call them a 'boutique' company - because they are very high touch and truly care about the customer and end result, and most importantly, the relationship building and next steps after the event. They do not overbook their calendar and it shows with their customer service. Our speakers (Senior Exec VP level) were impressed with the format, and who they brought to the table. We will be continuing to engage with them. I can't recommend them enough and with so many out there, it is hard to find the right fit!
