How to leverage VR and AR in blockchain or fintech
Speaker – Natacha Rousseau, Spokesperson for David Chaum, the founder of DigiCash and Godfather of Blockchain
Topic Abstract : Blockchain and VR/AR is now disrupting industries like education, healthcare, real estate, and, finance. While it may have seemed that much-hailed back in the 80’s AR and VR technologies were not destined to evolve into something viable, today their field of application is expanding at an impressive rate. As researchers say, the market for AR/VR solutions will reach $150 billion in the United States by 2020, with AR beating VR by dramatic $120 billion.

2) How can we take advantage of this movement/ opportunity
3) Real -World case scenarios and solutions from Hollywood
With regards to fintech, the disruption we are facing is the alleviation of the financial industry’s most evident “pain” — improving customer experience through the transformation of customer services. The use of VR in fintech offers an opportunity to go to a virtual bank and hold virtualized meetings without having to visit a brick-and-mortar venue. Not only does it ride clients of a frustrating routine of talking to a human advisor, it also helps banks cut real estate and employment costs of setting up affiliate branches. AR solutions help integrate banking with real estate by automatically scanning real estate objects and offering mortgage calculations.
