Regaining trust through advancing technology

This timely topic encapsulates the pivotal moment in the industry that we are currently facing. On one hand, institutional crypto adoption reached new levels. Also crypto demonstrated how it can support countries in worst crises such as in Ukraine, building a resilient parallel financial system for payments and donations. On the other hand, crypto has suffered one of its hardest blows through its Lehman Brothers moment in connection with meltdown of the FTX exchange.

The venue: Zurich - Circle Convention Center

The Circle is the place to be in Zurich. Directly connected to Zurich airport, with over 2800 m² of floorspace and a new state-of-the-art conference centre, it’s hard not to be impressed by the prestige of the Hyatt conference venue.
