New York University’s Professor David Yermack will deliver a public lecture on blockchain—the new technology set to revolutionise financial record-keeping.

Blockchain, which was introduced with the virtual currency Bitcoin, is changing the way banks, companies and governments operate.

Professor David Yermack will discuss the potential impact of blockchains and highlight the significance of the most high profile blockchain projects underway around the world.

Special focus will be placed on the ASX, which has announced an ambitious plan to replace much of the Exchange's processing infrastructure with a blockchain-based system.

Professor Yermack’s public lecture, Blockchains and the Future of the Financial Services Industry, will take place on Tuesday 30 August at 6pm at the UWA Business School.
