Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, recently sat down for a chat with IMF’s Deputy General Counsel Ross Leckow. The conversation took place at Monday’s Singapore Fintech Festival. In the dialogue, the two exchanged ideas on the opportunities that blockchain technology and digital assets provide for the financial institutions in the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) region.
Mr. Lechow was quick to point out that the IMF was devoting a lot of attention to Finetech and blockchain technology. However, he was quick to point out that other emerging technologies were also worth mentioning. These technologies include cloud computing, APIs, Mobile and more.
