    Lykke builds a global marketplace for all asset classes and instruments. The marketplace builds on top of blockchain and is designed to accommodate different blockchain technologies. In the case of Bitcoin issuers use the open asset protocol to create digital coins that are financial securities representing currencies, equities, commodities or any other type of 'I_Owe_You'. The exchange has a new type of matching engine that uses price, spread and time to queue Limit orders. Our goal is to build an efficient market and establish human right of direct access to a fair marketplace.

    The digitization of the economy is extensive, the consequences for companies and industries often revolutionary and existential in nature. The speed of innovations and concepts is so breathtaking that startups immediately begin to vie with large corporations for markets. The challenge for business leaders is to remain oriented and focused in a process of change that constantly demands new ways of thinking, new rules, new partners and an increased willingness to actively embrace change. The DIGITAL ECONOMIC FORUM (DEF) is a platform which brings together new trends, standards and the people behind them, independently of industries and sectors.

    The focus of the Digital Economic Forum is on the entire potential of digital technologies, the developments in politics, security and compliance and the requirements for cross-border information exchange and value creation.

    Oliver Stoldt, innovative event professional with a global network – is behind the Digital Economic Forum. The DEF is organised under the lead management of Premium Conferences GmbH.

    A Fast and Scalable Payment Network with Bitcoin Duplex Micropayment Channels

    Bitcoin does not scale, because its synchronization mechanism, the blockchain, limits the maximum rate of transactions the network can process. However, using off-blockchain transactions it is possible to create long-lived channels over which an arbitrary number of transfers can be processed locally between two users, without any burden to the Bitcoin network. These channels may form a network of payment service providers (PSPs). Payments can be routed between any two users in real time, without any confirmation delay.

    Gamification in financial services means the application of game-design elements and game principles in the banking and insurance context. While paying and investing money is definitely “not a game”, there is actually a lot we can learn from game-designing and approaches used in the multi-billion game industry. And gamification is happening also in Switzerland! So join us for a definitely engaging and interesting discussion around how gamification can help us reach the next level in Swiss Fintech.

    Speaker biographies:

    Matthias Sala is founder and CEO of gbanga.com, a Swiss game studio that focuses on the development of mixed-reality games. That means games that analyse the player’s current situation such as location, local weather and friends nearby to deliver a game experience that is more fun. Patrick Kramer is Executive Director at UBS and Head Strategy & Service Management at Group Marketing & Communications Services. Patrick had the project lead on launching UBS’ application “Quiz & Fly”.

    Iryna Nosan is a graduate of the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland FHNW and wrote her Master’s Thesis on “Gamification in the Financial Industry”, interviewing Executives and Gamification Experts around Switzerland. She will present her findings exclusively for the first time at our meetup.

    Event agenda:
    18:30 - Doors open
    19:00 - Welcome from Swiss FinteCH from John Hucker & Daniel Diemers (SFTA)
    19:10 – Introduction to gbanga.com from Matthias Sala (gbanga.com)
    19:30 – Lessons learned from a gamification project from Patrick Kramer (UBS)
    19:50 – Presentation of research results “Gamification in Switzerland” from Iryna Nosan (FHNW)
    20:10 – Open discussion, followed by drinks & networking

    "The DAO" is the first truly "decentralized venture fund". It is based on the Ethereum blockchain, with backers who are potentially anonymous and distributed globally across many jurisdictions. The anonymous (or pseudonymous) participation of individuals distributed globally opens up a multitude of interesting questions when it comes to distributing the income of the DAO and the use of the funds by DAO projects from a legal and tax perspective.

    Join us for an evening of presentations on Python, R and F# by leading fintech experts and stay for apero afterwards. This event is being held in collaboration with AdNovum at their offices. Below are details on topics and abstracts.

    (1) Financial Time Series Analysis with Python and R

    by Yves J. Hilpisch

    Abstract
    This talk illustrates how Python in combination with the pandas library makes financial time series analysis efficient, fast and fun. In addition, it illustrates how easy Python interacts with R to access its more advanced statistical capabilities. All examples are based on an interactive Jupyter Notebook in which both the Python and R codes are executed.

    Speaker Bio 
    Dr. Yves J. Hilpisch is founder and managing partner of The Python Quants (http://tpq.io), a group focusing on the use of open source technologies for financial data science, algorithmic trading and computational finance. He is the author of the books "Python for Finance" (O'Reilly, 2014), "Derivatives Analytics with Python" (Wiley, 2015) and "Listed Volatility and Variance Derivatives" (Wiley, forthcoming). Yves lectures on computational finance at the CQF Program (http://cqf.com) as well as on data science at htw saar (http://htwsaar.de). He has written the financial analytics library DX Analytics (http://dx-analytics.com) and organizes meetups and conferences about Python for quantitative finance in Frankfurt, London and New York.

    (3) Financial apps with Excel & Python
    by Felix Zumstein

    Abstract
    While Excel offers an intuitive user interface, it has many deficiencies, VBA just being one of them. xlwings is an open-source library which allows to write Excel automation scripts, macros and user defined functions with Python instead of VBA. This talk gives a rundown of what xlwings can offer and how it can greatly enhance speed and reliability of spreadsheet models by relying on the Python ecosystem for numerical computing.

    Speaker Bio
    Felix is founding partner of Zoomer Analytics GmbH, a Zürich based consultancy for financial apps and the company behind xlwings. Before that, he was a director at UBS Global Asset Management where he was responsible for building an in-house system to analyze and optimize the strategic asset allocation of institutional and private clients.

    swiss fintech meetup

    Our belief is that through the dialogue and community education the Swiss Finance + Technology Association can play an important role in directing FinTechs on their business route as well as demonstrating channels to cooperate with financial system players. In the framework of this series algorithmic trading platforms will offer you access to the global community of traders, whereas "smartphone" banks functionalities will be put to test. We will debate artificial intelligence making a way into commodities trading as well as our findings on valuation of FinTech companies. We kick off the series with the conversation about the future of investing on Dec 14th with a few innovators among established financial players and FinTech.
