Australia Post chief executive Ahmed Fahour said, “The future is going to be a digital identity, so that when you say who you are, I can tell who you are. A lot of people are thinking about blockchain from a financial services point of view but the reality is it has much wider applications.”

Sydney could stand alongside New York and London as a blockchain capital of the world as the technology evolved in the next five years.
