Blockchain as Inspiration: Lykke at IATA World Financial Symposium

The Lykke team has just returned from Singapore where we participated in IATA World Financial Symposium 2016 and witnessed how the blockchain can inspire creativity, lead to the future and make dream projects come true.

Lykke founder and CEO Richard Olsen took part in FinTech – Impact on the CFO and the financial team panel discussion. The session was about how the financial department will look like in the future: the role in the organization, the skills needed.

The blockchain turned out to be one of the major topics for The Future of financial technologies track. IATA shared its inspirational idea at WFS 2016 FinTech session - IATA digital coin. Lykke is proud to have had a chance to contribute. Please check the video from the presentation below.

Lykke was also a WFS exhibitor and presented an interactive net art object called PicChain at its booth. That was the first test for the crowdsourced project by Stan, a Russian artist inspired by the blockchain technology. PicChain presentation to public is planned for October, but you have a chance to have a look at it now at or at SIBOS 2016 in Geneva on September 27 - we'll be in the Swiss FinTech Corner.
