Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is set to keynote at the annual Swell by Ripple conference later this year’s edition.
The 42nd President of the USA Bill Clinton will be participating in a question-and-answer session along with keynote speech in San Francisco, California over the first two days of October, Ripple announced on Tuesday, July 31, through a press release.
Ripple’s Swell is an initiative for bringing together leaders in banking and blockchain who are staunch to change the way the world moves money today. Swell is a meeting place where top names in the virtual currency and blockchain worlds, roster of payments experts and industry luminaries could connect and discuss trends, success stories of blockchain implementations and real-world blockchain use cases to meet changing customer demands for global payments.
President Clinton “helped usher in a period of extreme growth and adoption of the Internet” and founded plans that carried new technology to communities worldwide by bridging “digital divide.” Ripple mentioned in a post.
During the keynote address Gene Sperling, National Economic Council Director, and Advisor will be moderating a Q&A round with Ripple’s board of directors-Presidents Clinton and Obama.
The Swell program will also discuss:
•Financial services companies using blockchain technology in production
•Newmarket opportunity in remittances, e-commerce, and corporate marketplaces
•Frameworks for regulating digital assets across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East
The post leveled up further:
“These learnings are perhaps more relevant now than ever before. Like the Internet boom of the 90’s, we are at an impasse: digital assets and blockchain technology offer a way for value to be exchanged as quickly as information – creating more financial inclusion and economic opportunity. However, with this new technology comes the potential for concern, requiring thoughtful policy to protect consumers from risk without hampering innovation.”
Over the past few years, Ripple has seen massive gains among many of the topmost cryptocurrencies which have made captions for its ability to adapt, innovate, and shape public opinion through a variety of conducts. Ripple along with enhancing banking features to run smoothly and speed up the settlement process through the Swell initiative the platform is trying to bring new applied sciences to underprivileged communities globally.
