Alex Tapscott is an expert in early-stage, high growth companies and path-breaking business ventures. A passionate advocate for the disruptive potential of new technologies as key to start-up success, he believes the emerging blockchain platform will provide significant entrepreneurial opportunities as it revolutionises the way we transact our lives.

Tapscott was named as a founding member of the IMF’s High Level Advisory Group on Fintech. He was one of two Canadians chosen (along with Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada, Carolyn Wilkins). The group of 14 will work closely with the IMF’s Interdepartmental Working Group on Finance and Technology to study the economic and regulatory implications of developments in the area of finance and technology.

What is Blockchain?

“For 20 years we have got the Internet of information and now we have the Internet of value.”

Blockchain is a platform that allows anyone, whether individual or business, transact and move value, assets, money, money assets, without an intermediate as a bank or a government. Is the open-access, secure global platform on which Bitcoin is based. In a world where, according to Alex, “It’s cheaper and faster to mail an anvil to China than it is to send $100,” blockchain facilitates an authenticated, peer-to-peer transfer of value without an intermediary (such as a bank), in a manner that is transparent, public, permanent — and completely anonymous.
