Speakers from different funds and investment banks will explore their relationship to the new asset class. You will have the opportunity to learn how cryptocurrencies and other digital assets represent a real opportunity that is coming. 

To continue in the same theme, the seminar “ VCs in the blockchain and digital assets ” will solidify your knowledge of the subject. The way firms are approaching web3 will be discussed and big names like Sébastien Borget (The Sandbox), Brian Norton (MyEtherWallet) and Richard Ma (Quantstamp) will tell you about their plans for the future.

Finally, a larger conference will discuss all the topics highlighted by DeFi. In the seminar, “ The Rise of Decentralized Finance ”, you will learn how DeFi has managed to infiltrate its way into the traditional economy. Stéphane Reverre (Sun ZU Lab), Ilya Volkov (Youhodler), Amber and Paraswap will help provide answers to the challenged DeFi faces, and ways to anticipate future trends.
