Last Friday, on 23rd March, Faktor Zehn was honored to host the Blockchain for financial services industry meet-up event in Munich. The event saw over 70+ participants from diverse backgrounds as it provided the perfect platform to exchange experience and ideas apart from networking sessions for discussing Blockchain amongst Insurers and banks.
The event started with Sang H. Lee, the CEO and co-founder of DarcMatter, who discussed about improvements to asset management (particularly alternative investments) through blockchain.
The event continued with Oliver Volk, Allianz Re Blockchain Expert, who represents Allianz as a founding member of B3I (Blockchain for Insurance) initiative and is actively involved in the pilot project to create a common platform. B3i is the global re-/insurance initiative where 38 of the leading insurers, reinsurers and brokers aim to set standards to exchange data and transactions via Blockchain.
Shashank Jain, Head of International sales at Faktor Zehn (ConVista group), was also one of the guest speakers and discussed the adoption of Blockchain and respective use cases in the FSI industry. Live scenarios with and without Blockchain were demonstrated apart from Blockchain decision models, Blockchain design steps and creation of use cases.
