Post-trade financial services giant DTCC has announced it is to host a blockchain event next month in New York City.

Called the Blockchain Symposium, the day-long event will explore the business applications of blockchain technology for financial market infrastructures and the industry.

The firm told CoinDesk in an email:

"The aim of the program is to cut through the hype, discuss collaboration and use cases, and imagine what innovations the future may bring."

The 29th March event will feature Blythe Masters, CEO of blockchain startup Digital Asset Holdings, and J Christopher Giancarlo, Commissioner at the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The news follows DTCC's release of a report that, while recommending industry stakeholders experiment with blockchain implementations, cautioned against the growing hype surrounding the technology.

The report, entitled "Embracing Disruption: Tapping the Potential of Distributed Ledgers to Improve the Post-Trade Landscape", offered a measured endorsement of the technology and identified several features that could be applied to the post-trade industry.

For more information on the event, including its registration fees and ticket availability, visit the DTCC's official website.
