Wed, May 5, 2021 · 2:00 PM · CEST
About This Webinar

With the background of booming crypto prices and accelerated adoption by financial institutions, a growing number of corporations are accepting payments in Bitcoins and central banks backed digital currencies are taking steam.
Is this really a shift of sentiment or in fact, is there a role of crypto in cross-border remittances or is this all still hype?
Will the regulators ever allow digital assets to be used as payment instruments for cross-border payments?

IAMTN will explore this and many more questions with our esteemed panellists in the webinar: The role of crypto in cross border remittances.
