The Future of Currency – According to UBS Y Think Tank

The Swiss Fintech Association produced a video from the event at BlueLion Incubator, where the UBS Wealth Management Think Tank “UBS Y” kicked off their research into: “What currency will we use in the future?”. UBS Y explained their research methodology publicly for the first time that evening. And the guests attending got to use the methodology to give input to the New Currency Theme. This crowdsourcing approach resulted in over 50 inputs for the UBS Y team. A first digest of the evenings findings can be found here. Thank you Marcus Iofcea, Head of the UBS Y Think Tank, for sharing the unique way in which you look into the future of banking. Thanks to you John Hucker of the Swiss Fintech Association and to the team of BlueLion for organizing the event.
