ConsenSys attended SWIFT’s 41st annual Sibos convention this year in full force to bring the latest in blockchain technology to the enterprise and financial sectors. Ranging from consortiums to decentralized finance and capital markets, ConsenSys’ involvement in the Sibos discourse was substantial, with perhaps the announcement of the ConsenSys Codefi product suite— which provides a blockchain operating system for finance and commerce—garnering the most excitement.

For a complete picture on the latest in blockchain-integrated fintech and enterprise solutions, we’ve collected highlight video presentations including ConsenSys participants from Sibos 2019. These discussions feature everything from essential general overviews like “Intro to Enterprise Blockchain” and “DeFi 101: Intro to Digital Assets and Decentralized Finance,” to practical deep dives including “Fiat-Money Tokenization Models for Payments” and “Taking a Regulated Permissioned Blockchain Network to Production” — and you can watch them all in full today.

Missed Sibos this year? Don’t worry, we’ve written a full recap of Sibos 2019 with analysis about the future of finance, tech, and enterprise.
