There is a lot of chatter around blockchain technology and how it could potentially address numerous regulatory and market challenges in the financial industry, and we’ve covered this potential in recent DerivSource podcasts.  However, in this podcast we speak to Axel Pierron of Opimas and author of the recently published report ‘Blockchain in Capital Markets - A Pipe Dream’ about how this new technology shouldn’t been seen as a panacea. Specifically, we talk about the limitations of blockchain and why there may be existing technology in the industry that can solve some of the same problems in the same cost-effective way.
