About

Towards Institutional Adoption of Digital Assets and a Global Regulatory Framework.

Despite the significant drop in crypto's market capitalisation and some well-publicised coin failures, traditional financial institutions - banks, asset managers, insurers and others - are continuing to develop their digital asset and crypto strategies, since there is a widespread recognition that crypto, digital assets and blockchain are here to stay and offer a significant range of potential applications. This high-level gathering brings the TradFi and crypto communities together to discuss the future of crypto finance, the growing intersection between, and integration of, the two financial worlds and the impact of the coming wave of regulation, which is likely to redefine business models and practices.
