Speed and security are at the heart of concerns about the scalability of blockchain into enterprise. Bitcoin can process 7 transactions per second (tps), while major card networks can handle 20,000. But developments from XRP have pushed their tps above 1500.

Join this panel to see if the new breed of blockchains are ready to be relied on for financial transactions, whether they will ever reach parity with card networks and, most importantly, if they even need to.
