On stage at the Future of Fintech Conference (https://www.cbinsights.com/research-future-of-fintech), Lauren Kolodny of Aspect Ventures, Ravi Viswanathan, NEA, and Patricia Kemp of Oak HC/FT discuss fintech’s changing infrastructure layer. “You can mine for gold or you can sell pickaxes.” Blockchain and bitcoin are playing a role in the changing face of finance. Are they here to stay or indicative of larger changes to come? Either way, incumbents need to know about them and where they play into the larger infrastructure schemes of the financial world. Topics covered include blockchain, financial services (both B2B and B2C), Insurance Tech, startups like Plaid, and more. Moderated by Olivia Oran of Thomson Reuters.
