3PM PDT | 5PM CDT | 6PM EDT
Grab your drink - Coffee or Beer/Wine - and join us for a panel discussion to learn about the exciting world of Cryptocurrency and NFTs. Get perspective from the pioneers in the space on the current landscape, and on what we can expect in the coming year.
Institutional investors are rapidly increasing the adoption of crypto assets, initiated by large volumes of movement in the retail market. Many investors are becoming rich and gaining large profits from smart trades, but masses are also losing money due to volatility in crypto value and other risks the space poses. The same is observed in other emerging digital assets. In this session we invite and discuss various approaches navigating the digital asset landscape through exchanges, asset management companies, trading, and startup platforms. We will hear from disrupting business perspectives on the trends, speculations, opportunities, and potential threats.
This is a unique opportunity to get a holistic overview of what investors need to know when trading digital assets and their derivatives, how to analyze and understand the market to ultimately win. We hope you find this session refreshing and informational.
This will be a moderated discussion where we plan to have an open panel discussion format.
