Distributed: Markets Blockchain Conference Brings Global Technology Leaders, Entrepreneurs and Financial Services Professionals to AtlantaOn February 27, leaders in financial services and blockchain technology will gather at The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta for ground-breaking exploration of the future of finance.

Atlanta long ago earned its standing as the payments capital of the world and today it is the perfect location to explore a technology that is already dramatically affecting the future of payments, capital markets, insurance and more,” said Tyler Evans, CTO of event host BTC Media.

More than 60 speakers, including Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, Brian Behlendorf, executive director of Hyperledger, Rob Palatnick, chief technical architect of the DTCC, and Sandra Ro, executive director of digitization for CME Group, will discuss the critical needs and opportunities in the payments, capital markets, digital assets and insurance sectors at a time when distributed ledger technology is more strongly poised than ever to revolutionize fintech.

“The Distributed: Markets conference answers the pressing need for opportunities to explore, network and reinforce knowledge — and then move ahead with strategic decision-making on how best to put blockchain to work for enterprise,” said BTC Media CEO David Bailey.

More than 500 attendees are expected, including local and global leaders in payments and financial services, enterprise C-level executives, founders of high-growth startups, software and other tech professionals, as well as venture capitalists and potential investors.

Keynotes, demos and panel sessions cover payments, capital markets, digital assets and insurance. Also, a 24-hour blockchain hackathon runs February 25-26 at Atlanta’s Switchyards Downtown Club. The hackathon will draw entrepreneurs, developers and designers to compete for $15,000 in prizes.
