Capital Markets Special Interest Group: Roadmap for 2022
Last year has seen growth and interest in Blockchain Inspired Technologies. As the first use case of Blockchain started with a payment solution, Capital Markets have been front and center of the Blockchain journey. The Hyperledger Capital Markets Special Interest Group is the venue at the intersection of Hyperledger projects and Capital Markets.
Last year we had some topical and bold presentations and discussions.
As Hyperledger is a global organization and as the APAC (Asia Pacific) region is home to some of the most innovative action in the Blockchain space; there was a call to create a schedule that accommodates APAC. Accordingly, the first meeting of the new year will happen at an APAC friendly time on January 12 at 10 pm EST - 11 AM HK, 8:30 am Indian Standard Time (IST).
The first Europe/US call will be on the 26th of Jan (which coincides with Republic day in India) at the Usual Time of 10 am EST. Adjustment in the calendars will reflect this. APAC calls may move further to accommodate the far-flung regions of the timezone better. A set of collaborators in the APAC region have been identified by Julian Gordon.
Currently we will alternate calls between US/Europe and APAC on our usual bi-weekly Wednesday schedule (the timing on APAC Wednesdays will be at 10 pm EST) and US/Europe Wednesdays at 10 am EST. I have made changes to the schedule already.
The first meeting in APAC on the 12th will feature an introduction to the CMSIG, in the form of a conversation between Julian Gordon (APAC Manager Hyperledger) and Vipin Bharathan (HLCMSIG Chair) with a healthy Q&A to follow.
Given below are suggested topics for 2022...Most of these deal with the changes that are afoot in the Finance world.
Obviously this list is not graven in stone. Please respond (via email, wiki page etc.)- your suggestions are welcome.
