Our newsletter highlights the most significant Blockchain news in finance and insurance. View in browser

Hello Friends,

Walmart steps out from stealth mode and releases the biggest live deployment of blockchain to date. Press Release

This was made possible with our partner DLT Labs, who we represent in the Banking, Financial Information and Insurance industry.

This changes the dynamic of blockchain adoption. The platform, which we adapted for BFSI, can be deployed on any cloud with any protocol and enables users to work directly within an enterprise pilot environment.  It significantly reduces the time to market, having passed eight levels of security penetration from Walmart.

The way we see it, one of the key takeaways from the announcement should be an industry shift in mind-set. If you have been experimenting with blockchain, with our new tools, instead of doing proof-of-concepts, now right out of the gate, you can develop pilots that immediately have the ability to scale for enterprise. Please read some of our articles referencing this news.

Of course, during this holiday season, I can’t close without saying thank you for all of the support you have generously offered. Thank You. As a small token and to put a smile on your face, we have attached a Stereogram. Have some fun and see if you can spot the holiday image.

Happy Holidays and Peace. I truly hope that 2020 will be your best year ever!

Warm Regards,

Richard Brownstein, CFP®
