In near real-time, the world is watching the evolution of blockchain technology. Born of Bitcoin, Blockchain 1.0 established the viability of the public ledger concept and introduced the reality of a new digital currency. Today, Blockchain 2.0 is underway with the rapid exploration of cryptographic ledgers by financial services players. In a domain we call Blockchain 3.0 is the use of these tools in cases beyond what the financial institution requires, including digital value exchange across the Internet of Things as well as the management of non-financial asset classes such as stocks, bonds, land titles, and more.

Join Glenbrook for this interactive, one-day session on how these networked ledgers work, where they are put to use today, and how innovation may extend their use deep into financial institutions, business, and our personal lives. Come and work through the mechanics – the regulations – the players – and the economics in our “deep dive” workshop. We promise you’ll leave understanding much more!

  • Glenbrook's Payments Education Program is useful both for experienced managers, who often want to be updated on what’s happening in areas outside of their immediate domain, and for newcomers, who need a broad overview of the U.S. payments systems to create a context for their work.

  • Network with your peers
    Payments Boot Camp and workshop attendees enjoy opportunities to connect with other people in the industry, as well as with the Glenbrook team. Most two-day events have a networking reception at the end of the first day, and there are always chances to network during lunches and breaks.

  • Over 15,000 payments professionals have attended Glenbrook workshops. Attendees have included product, strategy, and sales managers, technology, operations, and risk managers, investors, inventors, and analysts, management teams from payments startups
