Masters Corporate Education, the corporate education arm of Sri Lanka Technological Campus (SLTC), is launching Sri Lanka’s first-ever blockchain and crypto summit, aimed at redesigning trust in the digital age.
Held in partnership with CFA Society Sri Lanka, SLASSCOM, ACCA, and Daily FT, the summit aims to collate insights into critical strategies for success as well as use-case scenarios from the best minds in the industry across the world. The Blockchain Summit, catering primarily to businesses professionals and policymakers, is a timely one, as Sri Lanka is set to embark on its blockchain journey, standing to benefit from decentralisation, dependability and immutability it offers any business in any industry.
Designed to give an understanding of the evolution of blockchain and its core concepts to broaden participants’ professional capability and sharpen their ability to apply blockchain concepts real time, the event will give an in-depth insight into how best to deploy blockchain systematically and with accuracy in order to successfully implement it for respective industries and business contexts.
Speaking about the summit SLTC Chief Executive Officer Ranjith Rubasinghe said: “Blockchain technology is becoming a game-changer for accounting, supply chain, banking, contract law, and many other fields. In Sri Lanka’s journey to become Asia’s next digital hub, the government’s decision to explore potential strategic implications of blockchain technology on the business and economy I believe is a timely decision. But it will only be useful if lots of people understand it, trust and adopt it. In this context I am excited about the Blockchain Summit organised by Masters Corporate Education and I thank our partners and all the speakers for supporting this initiative. We always strive to bring global insights to businesses for their next phase of growth and this event will help to understand blockchains impact on businesses.”
