A number of central banks are currently considering the use of blockchains, or distributed ledger technology (DLT), for the issuance of central bank money (Central Bank Digital Currency, CBDC).
In the most extreme scenario currently under consideration, companies and individuals would be granted direct access to the accounts of central banks, thus bypassing commercial banks. However, under less disruptive scenarios, the use of DLT by central banks will likely change the financial system as we know it.
Dr. Hans Kuhn will provide an overview of the current state of play, conditions for and obstacles to the use of DLT by central banks and potential ramifications for monetary policy, financial stability and the banking system.

The world of cryptocurrency has been growing at a staggering pace. While Bitcoin is still the most popular digital currency, many different altcoins have been attracting considerable amounts of capital. Because of this ever-growing interest in digital currencies, the goal of our conference is to discuss their long-term capabilities and impact.
With cryptocurrencies, the blockchain is inevitably linked. It has been quite a few years now since this much-praised technology has first appeared in the mainstream. So it is time to take stock: how has blockchain effectively changed industries? And how has it effected our very personal life? What are the actual use cases? And what is still to come?
On September 14, 2017, leading experts are going to talk about these topics at Kunsthaus Zurich.

Bitcoin, Ethereum, IOTA, Ripple & Co. – Blockchain Plattformen mit ihren Währungen haben sich in den letzten Monaten verstärkt ins Bewusstsein der Öffentlichkeit gebracht.
Die Aufmerksamkeit richtet sich vorwiegend auf die Kursentwicklung. Dabei wird übersehen, dass nicht der Preis im Mittelpunkt stehen sollte, sondern der eigentliche Wert, den eine Kryptowährung generiert. Denn dieser besteht in neuen Marktplätzen mit eigenen Ökosystemen und innovativen Geschäftsmodellen: dem „Internet of Money“.
Die Referierenden in dieser exklusiven Vorabendveranstaltung stammen aus dem Crypto Valley und geben Einblicke in die Funktionen von Kryptowährungen. Dabei wird unter anderem auch den Fragen nachgegangen, was langfristig vom Kryptowährungsmarkt bleiben wird, und ob sich dieser gerade in einer Blase befindet.
