ABC Webinar Shares Key Takeaways and Highlights From Money 20/20 and San Francisco Blockchain Week Events
Didn’t make it to San Francisco Blockchain Week? Missed Money 20/20? Couldn’t join regulators and legislators for “Blockchain Demo Day on the Hill” recently?
Don’t worry. The Accounting Blockchain Coalition (ABC) can help.
It’s impossible to attend every available blockchain event, but ABC can help with a new webinar that provides industry updates from a few of the more important recently concluded blockchain events.
Listen to Andre Sterley, ABC Member and Audit and Accounting Working Group Co-Chair, Sr Audit Manager of Mazars USA LLP and ABC Member Steven Baum, CPA and Principal of Friedman LLP provide a roundup of highlights from these blockchain events while leading a lively discussion. The recorded webinar will help keep you abreast of developments in the rapidly changing blockchain industry.
Thousands of payment, banking, fintech and financial services professionals traveled to Vegas recently to attend Money 20/20. The theme this year was “The Journey to the Future of Money”. No doubt blockchain will be an important part of that journey both today and in the future. A key takeaway from Money 20/20 according to Sterley was the statement made at the event that “five years from now, we will look back at the payment segment and we won’t recognize it.” Find out more about blockchains at Money 20/20.
San Francisco Blockchain Week
SF Blockchain Week is where blockchain startups, enterprise companies, academics, developers, and investors from around the world come together to define the future of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Some consider it the “Consensus Conference of the West Coast”. One observation Baum shared on the webinar was that the event is seeing a greater influx of larger companies at the event.

Washington DC Capitol Hill
“Demo Day on the Hill” was a chance for members of the Global Blockchain Business Council to meet with US regulators and legislators to discuss public and private blockchains. An interesting comment from this event is that some regulators believe by “2030 half of all contracts will be performed on public blockchains.” Get an overview of the discussion on Capitol Hill.
