Digitization is accelerating rapidly, and digital assets enable investors to participate in different areas of these technological advancements. It is difficult to predict what the digital world of the future may look like, and no one can say with high conviction which investments or assets will emerge victoriously. Bitcoin has a significant head start as the leading global store of value alternative to gold. Ethereum is on the rise, fueling the expanding world of decentralized finance (DeFi), which is gaining quick traction among investors. And we have witnessed significant capital being deployed in the last few years to support the industry’s growth and provide institutional investors the tools to invest, trade, and instantly transact with billions of dollars in daily liquidity.
This session will cover the cryptocurrency landscape, headwinds and tailwinds, the latest innovation, and how best to put money to work in the rapidly evolving digital asset class. Digital assets are the future of global finance. The market disruptions and technological progress behind this new digital frontier will be here to stay.
