Seattle Alternative Investments Association Presents:

Digital Currency & Blockchain Technology

Blockchain, the decentralized technology underpinning the recent explosive growth in digital currencies, has the potential to permanently transform and disintermediate a multitude of industries and change the way in which companies finance themselves and conduct business. Join our distinguished panel of speakers for an animated conversation discussing the opportunities, trends, and challenges of this new frontier.

Dan began his career at Goldman Sachs as a mortgage backed securities trader.
