About the event

Event is all about where leading blockchain experts, funds, investment professionals, exchanges and regulators discuss crypto assets and their impact on financial markets.

Why attend

We are producing a one-day conference in NYC on March 22, 2018 to bring together knowledgeable people and curious people to discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with the new technology and its impact on investment management. With such meteoric growth in bitcoin and the variety of cryptoassets available, people in the finance industry are getting bombarded with information and misinformation.
