So we have decided to create BlockFin at LendIt USA 2018, which will be one of the world’s largest gatherings of financial services industry professionals. We expect that banks, insurance companies, investment firms, fintech companies, technology service providers, media, government, and academics will converge in San Francisco at LendIt to learn about innovation across financial services. This will be the perfect venue to introduce BlockFin to the world.”
