Evolution of the AUD

  • Thu 14 Dec 2017
  • 4.45pm

Join us for a general discussion and catch- up drinks to round off the year and look forward to what 2018 might bring. 

The AUD or money has gone from Metals to paper to electronic and now there are calls for AUD backed crypto currency. Fintech Australia and various associated parties are now pushing the Treasury and RBA to seriously investigate as other governments around the world have already begun. CMC Markets will be hosting a chat with one of these players to try to get an idea of why he thinks this is such an important development. This is not a discussion about how high can bitcoin go, but understanding the evolution of the Australian dollar/ currency itself and the possibilities and issues that a crypto version of the AUD could bring. It is about the technological transformation of money which could affect all businesses. 

Speaker: Nicolas Steiger

Background: he runs a Blockchain enabled (Ripple distributed ledger protocol) FX payments business. FlashFX has been involved in these discussion and is part of the Fintech push.
