After the recent Bitcoin price surges, and increased interest from central banks regarding CBDCs and stablecoins, it is clear that cryptocurrencies have come a very long way since Satoshi published the famous Bitcoin whitepaper in 2008. Now, over a decade later, the industry seems to be in a transitory period, where important players (central banks, tech companies, and market makers) are experimenting and leading the way to the future of finance. What will the crypto world look like in 10 years, or even 20 years, and what technological advances will need to happen to make that a reality?
We invited industry experts to share their ideas and to talk about what technological innovations could emerge in the years to come.
-Pietro Grassano, Business Solutions Director Europe at Algorand
-Marion Laboure, Macro Strategist at Deutsche Bank and Harvard University lecturer
-Henry Holden, Adviser at the BIS Innovation Hub at the Bank for International Settlements
-Francisco Spadafora, Head of Blockchain Service Line at NTT Data Italy
The discussion will be moderated by Mike Rogers, Research Analyst at The Block.
A replay of the webinar will be available for those who cannot attend the live event.
