Blockchain, apart from the pure hype and geek side of cryptominers is absorbing more followers and adopters, while remaining mysterious and raising the interests of governments, private sector, public sector as well as regulatory authorities and more specifically central banks. The advent of new types of currency known as cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, or other forms of digital money represents new challenges in terms of governance, control, accountability for which the stakes are not well understood. The presenter is Paul Wang , MSc EPFL, MIT Sloan School of Management: Blockchain Technologies, CISA, CISSP, CISM, CRISC
