It’s time for part four on Blockchain initiatives/companies powered by the Metaverse Insider. In case you missed out on the first part published earlier in the month, here is the link to it.
1. Wall Street Blockchain Alliance
The Wall Street Blockchain Alliance (WSBA) is a non-profit trade association created for financial market professionals, by financial market professionals. It was founded in NYC in 2015 and is led by Ron Quaranta, WSBA’s Chairman.
Blockchain, distributed ledgers and smart contracts represent a seismic shift in how financial markets, and all aspects of the global economy, operate. In the same way that the internet gave us a powerful way to share and access information, blockchain technology now gives us a powerful way to share and access value. The WSBA is working to incorporate and adapt these powerful advances in technology — including the emergence of digital currencies — to the world of “Finance 2.0”, having an organized, strategic approach will help all participants involved in the global, distributed ledger ecosystem.
