Blockchain is getting a lot of attention within the mortgage industry, and for good reason.  With millions of consumers borrowing to purchase millions of properties, and served by thousands of lenders, closing agents, service providers, and others, the large mortgage ecosystem may greatly benefit from the distributed ledger concepts that are the foundation of Blockchain.   Join MISMO and MBA for the industry's first ever Blockchain Challenge.  Sponsored by Fiserv and Factom the event will bring industry experts together with Blockchain experts to explore how mortgage industry problems might be solved by this transformative technology. 

This event is intended to bring industry and Blockchain experts together to discuss innovative solutions to the industry's most pressing issues.  To ensure that industry experts have a foundational understanding of Blockchain, the day will begin with a continuing education panel covering the basics of distributed ledger concepts and actual use cases from other industries.  Attendees will then split up to participate in one of several work group sessions.  Facilitators have been identified to lead the work group discussions.  Each work group will focus on a business issue of particular interest to the industry and discuss how blockchain might be used to resolve or improve the problem.  Workgroups will present their findings during a presentation at the conclusion of the day.  We hope, and expect, that some or all of these workgroups will evolve into ongoing communities that continue to collaborate to utilize Blockchain to propel the mortgage industry forward.     

Who should attend?
Anyone with an interest in solving today's business challenges.  Knowledge or expertise in Blockchain is not required.  Knowledge of obstacles within our industry, and an openness to new ideas, is all you need to attend.   Learn more - listen to the MBA Now video on the event.

Why now?

Blockchain has the tantalizing potential to create new opportunities while solving issues that plague the industry.  Yet Blockchain is not simply a piece of software you plug into your system.  Success requires collaboration between different entities.  Which means we need to start talking and collaborating before upstarts blindside the industry.  Now is the time to explore the possibilities of how Blockchain could be used to solve business challenges experienced by your organization and others in the mortgage finance industry.  In our nine trillion dollar industry, there are numerous challenges which might could benefit from these new technologies.  


The event is scheduled to kick off promptly at 9 am and conclude at 3:30pm. Details of panelists, break-out group facilitators, and facilitated break-out session descriptions are included in the Blockchain Challenge Day Agenda.
