Crypto’s market capitalisation declined significantly in 2022 following a series of market crashes and coin failures, culminating in a loss of over $2 trillion in value since last year. At the same time, traditional and decentralised markets continue to become more aligned as financial institutions and corporates of all shapes and sizes seek to make use of crypto’s potential applications.
This Winter Edition, which forms part of a series of crypto events, will gather industry leaders including regulators, policy makers, senior banking executives, DeFi leaders and pioneers, institutional investors and hedge funds to share their insights on the market and debate ways to build resilience in the face of volatility. With the future of the industry remaining in flux, crypto firms brace themselves as they enter into the next phase of this crisis.
How are crypto markets impacting the broader world of finance as they become more closely aligned to traditional markets? Is blockchain’s potential in banking and investment now under question? How has the market downturn affected regulators’ outlook on crypto and digital assets? Where are the use cases for crypto beyond its role as a currency and payment mechanism? And can the market survive another ‘Crypto Winter’?
