    The centralized system of traditional financial institutions has always been effective – how can the decentralization technology of Blockchain be applied to the financial system without significant conflicts? In view of the problems in the current system, is Blockchain going to play just a supporting role or takeover the industry?

    As an Asset Class

    Cryptocurrency remains to be a topic of great controversy in the financial industry.  What do corporate investors think about this emerging asset? Other than the authorization of ETF listing and government legislations, what factors could prepare cryptocurrencies to become an important type of assets in the foreseeable future?
