The past ten years of the crypto and blockchain space has been both turbulent and redefining.

What does the current state of crypto around the world look like as we start to enter phases of solidification and regulation? Are we in the solidifying times of crypto? What does regulation look like in the US, and around the world? How can decentralized finance and technology revolutionize the future?

These are a few of the topics we will be addressing with our diverse panel of experts across the industry.

This event will host a brief recap of the past decade; both good and bad. We will showcase what projects have emerged and gained legitimacy throughout the blockchain community as well as what the future of holds in regulations, finance, and world of blockchain technology. We will finish by taking questions and facilitating a conversation around the topics that arise.

Whether you are new to the technology and interested in learning more, or an expert in your own right, we would love for you to attend and be a part of the conversation.
