X Topic Abstract

The world hold the breath and witnessed in wonder at the way things unfolded in 2017. Amidst many news-worthy stories, one thing that prominently caught everyone’s eye was the rise of Fintech innovation called ICO. In laymen's language - Initial Coin Offering. ICO implies crowdfunding a new cryptocurrency and an innovative idea that can be implemented on the blockchain technology. As of now, ICO mostly is raised for this reason. But what is interesting is the way it has changed the whole ecosystem of fundraising.

X Topic Abstract

A view from both sides of the fence. As a Corporate VC, we have invested in the public blockchain by way of an investment in the largest bitcoin wallet and exchange in the US, Coinbase. At the same time, we are also privy to the work of R3 in pushing forward work around permissioned blockchains. In this talk, we compare progress of the two and provide some possible futures as to how the two worlds may come together over time.

X Topic Abstract

1 .Block chain is not limited to Digital Currencies. What we see today is not the actual potential of blockchain. One of the reasons we see the upside in Bitcoin and other currencies is because of the trust people are building in this technology. It's surprising that the initial stage has made the market cap of Digital Currencies hit over 220Bn US$.

2. We all trust those people who can handle and take care of our money. That's the first step. Investing in Digital Currencies is making us trust the network of Blockchain.

3. The moment we see that our money is stored in our Smart Phone or PC we become more attentive in handling its security. This attentiveness is what is pulling people to trust the technology and slowly they will start trusting other aspects which may come as an outcome of Blockchain just like Bitcoin.

4. We shall talk about how blockchain will go beyond cryptocurrencies and evolve the way we do our business and activities.

5. Industries which will benefit the most with this technology and how they will implement. Few examples of the Industries which do not exist today but will take birth due to BlockChain technology in near future.

6. A brief look on current legal regulations and how the regulations may evolve to incorporate blockchain in the economic system.

7. A brief Idea of FEMA and Tax Regulations in India.

X Topic Abstract

An ideal digital bank of the future would not only offer payments through cryptocurrencies, but also have fully-integrated marketplaces for value chain players. Established banks have been trying to take a stand against being digitally disrupted and have been making attempts at adopting some of the technologies to re-imagine their offerings and processes.

In recent years, financial technology (FinTech) companies, which are mostly start-ups, have increased dramatically in number-from about 1,000 in 2005 to over 8,000 in 2017—and have harnessed many new cutting-edge technologies to offer various financial services, while sidestepping the legacy cost structures and regulatory constraints of incumbent banks and financial services institutions. These FinTech start-ups have also found significant encouragement in the form of increasing venture capital investments across sectors.

Technology start-ups are considered the primary disruptors of the traditional financial services industry and its way of working. Along with technology start-ups, a number of non-core players have been entering the banking and financial services domain, primarily through technology innovation and consumer interfacing. Each of these players could potentially disrupt the incumbent banks’ offerings and gain a stronghold in the FinTech space.

X Topic Abstract

Thomas Friedman talked about the The World is Flat. However, it is flat only for large organizations that could tap into global resources. For most individuals and SME, they could not tap into global opportunities. All their opportunities for wealth generation existed only in the country of domicile. Even the few opportunities that were presented outside of their country came with huge costs. Blockchain enables us to create new platforms that democratises wealth generation and presents an opportunity to see the world as one unit & facilitate investments. This presentation talks about deploying power of Blockchain to enable people to make global investments in as easy manner as local - and thus building their long term wealth.

Speaker Profile

Bharat Ravuri, a 24-year experienced professional in Financial Services Industry, has recently launched a FinTech Startup MintZip. He believes FinTech has not demonstrated transformation in the industry. Startups have just focused on process innovation - taking processes that exist in Banks & Financial Institutions and simplifying them. There has been no real innovation around Customer or Financial Products. MintZip would like to change that. It is focused on building overall financial services centred around the Customer and be able to create custom financial products based on their specific needs. MintZip aims to improve overall financial health of customers and thus, of the country.

Prior to MintZip, Bharat Ravuri was Managing Director at IHS Markit, leading a multimillion dollar global business. He worked at Fidelity Investments (One of the largest Asset Management firms in US), Citibank in Leadership roles, managed diverse functions such as Technology, Operations, Consulting & led global businesses. As part of his corporate journey, in addition to delivering stellar results, Bharat coached & developed many leaders to identify their strengths and achieve their true potential. His Division has always been sought after for Leadership talent.

He is an active member of NASSCOM and works on many industry level initiatives. He mentored multiple startups. He also takes active interest in Agriculture and spends many of his holidays at his farm in Hyderabad.


X Topic Abstract

The topic for the presentation will relate to the legal and regulatory framework for Blockchain implementation. A few bullet points of the topics to be covered are:

- A case study of manner for usage of blockchain (either sharing of KYC, loan transactions or trade finance transactions). We will discuss the manner in which these transactions are currently conducted and the modifications to the regulatory framework required to effectively implement this technology.

- Data Privacy v Block Chain. We will analyse the recent white paper released by the Government on Data Privacy and our recommendation for blockchain projects.

- Dispute Resolution/ Enforceability of Smart Contacts: Whether traditional mechanisms of legal/ contract enforcement can be utilized harmoniously with blockchain technology.

X Topic Abstract

Nearly 10 years after the inception of the first Blockchain proposal (Satoshi's white paper) and the majority of the value circulating the through the Blockchain industry is still concentrated at the lowest level of the tech stack.

In order to make progress we need to embrace a radically different approach when working on products and services, rather than remaining attached to the user-server/service-provider framework, there's a need to think in terms of ecosystems. Entrepreneurs can't afford waiting to see which smart contract platform will dominate the market, but, what we can do is transcend the strict dependency and yet make serious progress in laying the foundation for the decentralized web.


X Topic Abstract

Increasingly developers building out applications on the blockchain are looking for stable currencies for use within smart contracts. We discuss the case for central banks to take up this opportunity and develop stable currencies and examine some of the progress on this front globally.

X Topic Abstract

Some of the best ideas never get off the ground, not for lack of investment funds, but for the inability of potential investors, stakeholders and customers, to see what you see.

Make no mistake - funding is always available for those who can tell a story that creates excitement and paints the big picture in a way that everyone can understand and relate to.

However, for the Blockchain phenomenon, it is still early days, and as such, for many is an unknown and un-tested technology.

Therefore, knowing how to position your specific Blockchain application opportunity that gets attention, interest, desire and ultimately have them take action in the way you want (buy-in), must be an imperative – and this has nothing to do with the financials in a spreadsheet!

So, if you still discovering what Blockchain is all about, or if you are a Blockchain innovator trying to sell your idea to investors, or if you are a business leader seeking to persuade your company board to invest in Blockchain, then you need to attend Dr Ross McKenzie’s session where he will share the three critical strategies plus practical case studies, on building the business case for Blockchain that gets the “buy-in”, which you can leverage for your own use.

X Topic Abstract

Supply Chain Financing is a process wherein a lender/financer buys the whole or parts of an invoice raised by the supplier against the goods supplied to the manufacturer. The process creates a win-win situation for all the stakeholders, since the supplier's liquidity problem gets resolved by the finance provided by the lender, while the lender gets interest on the financed amount. On the other hand, the manufacturer gets more time to make payment, which in this case is to the lender.

However, the process of supply chain financing has been plagued by various frauds including forging of invoices, presenting fake documents for supplier onboarding, unauthentic ways of getting funded by the immoral suppliers such as producing fake invoices and approval document etc. The major factor fueling these fraudulent activities is the execution of this process via physical documents which can be easily forged and the lack of transparency of who is sending/approving what.

Blockchain creates a transparent ecosystem where the supplier, lender and the manufacturer interact on a distributed platform, in which each and every transaction is verified by the whole network. Anything posted on the Blockchain gets stored in the form of cryptographic hash which is immutable. Hence it is impossible to make any changes.

The information exchanges are digital and fast, making reconciliation of invoices and getting remittance information almost instantaneous. Further, each invoice gets tokenized and is stored in the form of a Smart Contract, which can be coded to autonomously fund the invoice on a pre-defined ratio as mutually agreed by the different suppliers, and distribute interest on the financed amount and the principal repayment accordingly.

X Topic Abstract

Provenance means “The Origin”. Provenance is something that people relate to pretty much. But that very thing is missing, when we talk about brands and their products. Do we know where does KFC source its meat from? Where do majority diamond jewellers source their diamonds from? Are they conflict free? Where does Woodland source its leather from? Is that leather acceptable to people? All these questions are unanswered today! For larger brands, the supply chain is actually their competitive advantage – Agreed. But as the famous saying goes – “Change is the only constant”. Consider the following dialog between two top management executives of a Blue Chip. Director 1 – What if we use provenance and make the entire Supply Chain transparent and our competitors take advantage of it? Director 2 – What if we do not disclose all the details and the customers go away to the ones who do? We all clearly know the answer to this. Provenance is the new way forward. The sooner you accept it, the better it will be for your organization. If you are not a part of the new ecosystem, you are surely going to lose market share – sooner or later – but an inevitable outcome.

Nisarg is working on Provenance with an alcohol major based out of Europe and believes it would exactly be the way large corporations would be building trust with their consumers.

Provenance is an inevitable outcome, especially after the advent of blockchain an IoT.


X Topic Abstract

Major parts of the financial world are being remade with blockchain-based systems. Some are direct analogs of existing systems, others are redesigned to take advantage of decentralised, cryptographically secured tokens; still others are completely new opportunities that could not have been possible with traditional financial systems.

This talk examines some of these disruptions:

Usual suspects like Payments, obviously. And credit, insurance and others such services based on 'smart' financial contracts. Then dull stuff like business-to-business settlements and cross-border remittances. Bank accounts, and banks themselves. KYC and other identity requirements. Escrow services.

And exciting stuff like securities exchanges, including futures. Betting and prediction markets. Hedge funds. Venture capital.

These are rapid, utterly fascinating developments.

But not everything succeeds simply because it’s on a blockchain. This talk also discusses which services make sense in a decentralised avatar. Whether they tackle real world inefficiencies. And if they fit into today’s regulatory environment.

In a nutshell, let's take a look at what makes a good blockchain-based financial service - it’ll give us a better sense of what the future of money'll look like.

Parity Technologies was victim of, one of the biggest hack in crypto currency's life span, resulting in more than $156 million in digital currency being frozen and inaccessible, impacting some entertainment start-ups as well.

While Crypto currencies apply multiple security techniques like encryption, PKI to regulate currency unit generation and verify fund transfers, and they themselves are fairly secure, is it the user who is primarily responsible for ensuring nothing happens to their money ? Apart from this there is no insurance for crypto currencies from any central governing authorities. Bitcoins, Ripple like currencies can be lost through hacking or even by just losing your password.

While there are multiple ways emerging to hack these currencies, there are multiple ways emerging to secure them as well. This is a never ending race between hackers and security specialists.
