John Rampton will be joining numerous bank industry leaders, fintech innovators, and investors from numerous VCs to share in a three-day discussion about subjects that range from debate about the potential end to banking as we know it, fintech trends, and mobile ecash banking to millennials as customers, customer engagement, fintech for small business and regulation technology.

Additionally, John Rampton will participate in a panel discussion on Wednesday, April 2oth about moving beyond bitcoin and focusing on the applications and opportunities within blockchain, which is also known as distributed ledger technology. Banks need to decide if cryptocurrency is a threat or something that they can turn into an opportunity and make significant improvements to the financial industry, including using it for mobile payments and other applications.
