“No Cash” spoken here. We’ve reached the tipping point where someone pulling out a wad of cash to make a payment has become an rarity. But what’s replacing it? Swiping a card is easy. Tapping a screen is easier still. Swiping your watch? Paying in VR? Paying with a voice command? Eyeball or facial identification? Virtual currency? And most of all, blockchain and ICOs spoken here!
However you pay in the digital world you’d best believe it’s going to involve some new paradigms about what is money, how to insure money has stored value and trust, and some exciting new hardware and software innovation. See what you should be thinking about as you invest, create new payment systems, and re-architect the world of finance.

We are on our way to determining what the currency of the future will look like and how people (and the machines that work alongside them) will earn that currency.

TOPICS WE’LL BE EXPLORING
The future of the global economy entails the integration of money and transactions into the myriad electronic devices that define the modern world. Getting there will involve nothing short of a social revolution, one in which various cultures, those of disruptive Silicon Valley startups, financial professionals and electronics engineers and marketers, must come together. That’s what makes the Digital Money Forum, which I have had the absolute pleasure of emceeing for two of the past three years, such a unique, exciting event. It is a nexus, a meeting point for these vibrant, headstrong communities to come together to chart the roadmap for our evolving digital existence.
The Hong Kong delegation feels extremely positive about our entire CES experience. Perhaps I should not have been surprised then that Wednesday’s talk at the Digital Money Forum was standing room only.
