For the second consecutive year, the Bitcoin Foundation will be participating in Sibos taking place September 29-October 2, 2014 and for the first time, the BAFT Global Councils Forum on September 28, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts. This year’s theme is ‘Building Bridges’ between new entrants and established players.

“Traditional finance has reached its limits among the banked. I’m looking forward to collaborating with those with a vision for a future and a world where all people, despite social and economic status and the country they live in, have the opportunity to access and engage in the global economy,” said Jon Matonis, Executive Director of the Bitcoin Foundation. He adds, “The time is now. Now only a mere disruptor of financial services, Bitcoin provides massive opportunities for established operators in terms of efficiency gains and enhanced consumer protection.”

Sibos brings together over 7,000 decision makers and topic experts from financial institutions, market infrastructures, multinational corporations and technology partners. Each day, Innotribe at Sibos will dive into a single topic, exploring it from a multitude of angles and inviting the audience to reflect on each facet together. Monday will focus on “Disruption and Opportunities of Crypto-Currencies”, Tuesday is “Towards a 21st Century Networked Organization”, Wednesday will showcase the “Innotribe Startup Challenge Grand Finale” as well as explore “Innovation Capabilities” and Thursday rounds off with lively debates on the “FinTech Innovation Ecosystem.”

In 2013, Patrick Murck, General Counsel, represented the foundation in Dubai. Jon Matonis, Executive Director and Founding Board Member, will be representing the Bitcoin Foundation in Boston for the following sessions:
