Time: 18.30 - 20.00 Venue: Old Theatre, LSE (map)
Chair: Sir Ross Cranston (Professor of Law, Department of Law, LSE)
Panellists: Jon Danielsson (SRC, LSE Finance), Eva Micheler (SRC, LSE Law) and Nikola Tchouparov (Moneyfold Ltd)
The event will address the evolving role of money in society. Money used to be gold and is now fiat. Electronic transactions mean we have all but stopped carrying cash. The three panellists will discuss how new financial technology is set to change how money and payment systems are organised, if cryptocurrencies will displace fiat money, and if banks will be replaced by technology providers.
