Exciting Events on the Horizon in Partnership with IBM

Another exciting week for WatermelonBlock with huge events, presenting opportunities and conferences on the calendar. Check out our two upcoming events.

IBM Invites WatermelonBlock to Sibos 2018

WatermelonBlock is excited to attend Sibos 2018 as a guest of IBM this October. SIBOS brings financial leaders together to network, collaborate and find solutions to industry challenges.

This year, the theme of the conference will revolve around ‘Enabling the digital economy’ across four major areas:

•    How data, AI and robotics are driving service innovation and business model renewal
•    New paradigms and technologies for information sharing to tackle financial crime
•    Tackling the widening cybersecurity challenge in the digital economy
•    Adapting to evolving geopolitical and regulatory priorities

WatermelonBlock and IBM will be discussing the functionality of the WatermelonWallet, which uses IBM’s World Wire platform to minimise the fees associated with intercontinental transfers. The solution can limit the time required to transfer funds overseas from days to mere seconds and is powered by Blockchain – rather than the vast number of intermediaries traditionally needed to complete the task.

WatermelonBlock is excited to be co-developing this solution with IBM in order be the first to utilise the platform as we endeavour to move further towards custodial solutions for crypto assets.

WatermelonBlock Will Be Presenting at IBM Think in November

WatermelonBlock and IBM recognise the need for custodial solutions for crypto assets and developing this tool as part of the World Wire platform gives gravitas to stage II of WatermelonBlock roadmap. WatermelonBlock will be co-presenting a custodial solution at IBM Think this November.

IBM says that: “Financial institutions best positioned to capitalize on this next generation of innovation are ones that implement a unique combination of hardware and software which is both flexible, to handle the increased volume, speed and volatility of these new real-time payment transactions, and agile to handle the variance as to who or what is initiating the transaction.” At WatermelonBlock, that’s what we’re all about.
