DeFi: Beyond Crypto (Nov 29th, afternoon) — there's much more to Web3 than crypto: there is an entire world of new financial primitives and applications waiting to be explored through DeFi. While DeFi is accessible to individuals, institutions often struggle with custody, compliance, taxation, mining, and unlocking the yields made possible through this technology. Join experts such as Anthony Bassili, Head of Asset Allocators at Coinbase Institutional, Joel Edgerton, Head of Americas Enterprise at Ledger, James Putra, Vice President, Product Strategy, TradeStation Crypto, Inc., and Alex McDougall, CEO of Stablecorp on a journey across the institutional DeFi landscape, and how to access this market.
Web2 to Web3 (Nov 30th, morning) — the transition from Web2 to Web3 is well-underway. Beginning at the infrastructure level, discussing the potential of unlocking Bitcoin layers to L2s & scaling solutions post-merge to investing in Web3 ecosystems as the new platforms, participants are led through emerging Web3 technologies and the industries that are being built around them. Don't miss out on industry leaders, including Tim Draper, Founding Partner of Draper Associates, Trevor Owens, Managing Partner at Stacks Ventures, and Angela Dalton, Founder & CEO, Signum Growth Capital, Anthony Avedissianl, Investor, Seed Club Ventures, breaking down what matters!
Embracing Web3 (Nov 30th, afternoon) — finally, we look towards the future to "go beyond crypto and embrace Web3". Speakers discuss their outlook on Web3’s role and impact on gaming, entertainment, organizations (DAOs), identity & on-chain reputations, philanthropy, sports, and the future of money. Don't miss out on Salim Ismail, Founding Executive Director, Singularity University, Sandy Carter, SVP & Channel Chief at Unstoppable Domains, Elana Dickman, Investor, Red Beard Ventures, David S.
