The Emergence of a Digital Money Ecosystem - Irving Wladawsky-Berger, PhD Visiting Lecturer, MIT Engineering Systems Division and MIT Sloan School of Management

About the Presentation

We are in the early stages of a very important transformation—the transition to a digital money ecosystem. This transformation is likely to be among the most exciting, important, and challenging initiatives the world will undertake in the coming decades.

The transformation involves more than the transformation of money (cash, checks, credit and debit cards, etc.) from physical to digital objects that we will carry in our smart mobile devices. It encompasses the whole money ecosystem, including the global payment infrastructures, the management of personal identities and personal financial data, the global financial flows among institutions and between institutions and individuals, the government regulatory regimes, and more.

This webinar will present an overview of this digital money transformation and the technical and societal forces that are driving it. We will also discuss some of the potential major consequences to business, the economy, and society in general.

For more information on this topic, please see Dr. Wladawsky-Berger's blog entry.
