In 2014, on the Money20/20 stage, Adam Ludwin launched Chain and set out to lead the market for enterprise adoption of blockchain technology. That same year, Jed McCaleb founded Stellar, an open network that allows any currency or asset to be digitally issued, transferred, and exchanged over the internet. Now meet Interstellar, formed from the acquisition of Chain by Lightyear, Stellar's commercial arm. For the first time at a major industry event, hear Interstellar's co-founders share their vision for how assets of all kinds can be tokenized and transferred seamlessly over the internet. Learn how Interstellar seeks to accelerate the adoption of blockchain in the corporate world by providing enterprises--like Chain's clients Visa, Nasdaq and Citi--access to Stellar's public blockchain.
