  • Here in Davos, there's two big themes that we're hearing bankers and financiers talk about in the world of financial technology.

  • They are block chain technology and artificial intelligence,

  • and this block chain technology that I think is particularly interesting

  • because we're seeing a real shift now in the debate of the industry

  • and how the industry is coming to terms with the... this new asset class, the crypto asset class people are calling it.

  • Well... after a year... last year when we saw the value of crypto currency has risen more than a half a trillion dollars.

  • The likes of Bitcoin and other crypto currencies have become impossible for the financial establishment to ignore.

  • And now we're seeing chief executive of NASDAQ here in Davos telling us the NASDAQ,

  • the big US exchange is gonna look ways to provide products

  • that will help retail investors put money into the likes of Bitcoin and other crypto currencies.

  • So this is really the start of these two worlds which of until now has been very separate coming together.

  • And a lot of banks up to now have been saying that the cliche is we don't like Bitcoin,

  • it's got... got dirty money attached to it,

  • but we do like to underline block chain technology.

  • And now it's getting a bit more modeled and confused,

  • people are starting to say what... say something to this crypto currency idea.

  • After all, we're now seeing these two worlds intertwine, but the big message from the financiers and the bankers

  • is that they really... they can't do much more until regulators set more ground rules,

  • so that they know what the rules of the game are.

  • It's very unregulated space, but crypto currencies and the establishment,

  • the financial establishment just starting to intertwine... they're starting to collide

  • and it's going to be very interesting to see how that develops.
