Luke Wilson, 4iQ Vice President of Intelligence, discusses virtual currencies, blockchain technology, and the FinTech industry on the latest episode of RIMScast, the official podcast of the risk management society.
With Luke’s deep understanding of currency and blockchain technology, he gives his insights on the upsides and downsides to virtual currencies and blockchain technology.
“Cybersecurity, I would think, has to be interwoven [with virtual currency and blockchain technology] because everything that goes on blockchain and cryptocurrency is over the internet. The more people use it, the more catch onto it, then you can expect the crime rate to go up as well, and there’s various different cybersecurity tools to help keep the bad people at bay.”
