Speaker(s): Dr Jon Danielsson, Dr Eva Micheler, Nikola Tchouparov | This event will address the evolving role of money in society. Money used to be gold and is now fiat. Electronic transactions mean we have all but stopped carrying cash. The three speakers will discuss how new financial technology is set to change how money and payment systems are organised, if cryptocurrencies will displace fiat money and if banks will be replaced by technology providers? Jon Danielsson (@JonDanielsson) is Co-Director of the Systemic Risk Centre and Associate Professor of Finance, LSE. Eva Micheler is Co-investigator of the Systemic Risk Centre and Associate Professor in Law, LSE Law. Nikola Tchouparov is CEO of Moneyfold Ltd. Ross Cranston is Professor of Law, LSE. The Systemic Risk Centre (@LSE_SRC) was set up to study the risks that may trigger the next financial crisis and to develop tools to help policymakers and financial institutions become better prepared. LSE Law (@LSELaw) is one of the world's top law schools with an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and legal research. Twitter Hashtag for this event:
