Background - In 1999 Patrick L Young wrote the first bestselling book on the topic of "fintech" "Capital Market Revolution!" at a time when financial technology was broadly ignored.
Two decades on and with CMR! having proven prescient, the floor traders are all but forgotten, electronic money is the talk of the town and many other items predicted by Patrick's original book.
In "Victory Or Death!" Patrick L Young, discussed, 20 years into the "Revolution!" key topics examining what has - and has not changed - while looking at diverse issues such as the long decline ahead from the peak of banks, the future of exchanges and of course, how cryptocurrency (e-money was widely predicted in CMR!) and blockchain are realistically going to shape the future of finance in a hyper competitive world.
Speaker - Patrick is a former exchange CEO and lifelong entrepreneur whose current interests include publishing the unique daily newsletter of the bourse business "Exchange Invest." He is chairman of industry association Blockchain Malta and lives in Valletta.
Chair - Professor Michael Mainelli, Executive Chairman, Z/Yen Group
