According to Le Long Giang, director of the Vietnam Financial Advisers Association (VFCA), blockchain is now the world’s second most powerful technology. As a result, a new extraction technique can overhaul economic trends and change marketplaces in the future.
Blockchain technology has the power to lift emerging economies to greater levels. Entrepreneurs, technology transfer specialists, educators, and researchers play important roles, and universities should become co-creators of sustainable development.
The conference’s program included digital and blockchain technologies, financial laws and norms, big data, financial markets and institutions in the digital age, and fintech behavior and performance. Business models and other topics linked to finance and economics, such as behavioral finance, were also covered.
A second session on blockchain applications in banking and finance was organized to promote scientific cooperation between universities, institutes, and research centers in Vietnam and throughout the world.
The workshop Application of Blockchain in Finance and Banking and an exhibition of IT products from colleges and businesses were also conducted.
The event was co-hosted by the VFCA, the Centre for Digital Assets Management, and the Faculty of Banking and Finance at Ton Duc Thang University as part of a larger project supported by the Ministry of Finance.
