Tuesday 31 July: Cryptocurrencies and the Future of Blockchain

It’s commonly said, a month in crypto is the equivalent of one year in the real world. And with more and more companies looking to tokenise their business, investors need to be aware about how to approach these latest offerings.

In the past 12 months, we have already seen some of the world’s biggest and well-known VCs make investments into blockchain and ICOs, as well as the ASX announce its plans to adopt distributed ledger technology.

Day two of the Advanced Technology and Cryptocurrency Convention will showcase the latest investment opportunities, and aims to answer the many questions arising from the dynamic area of this space with discussions from leading Crypto Fund Managers and Blockchain experts.

4 Key Areas We Will Be Focusing On:

  • The application of blockchain across many verticals
  • The new business models being created from it
  • The capital being raised to fund the development of the innovation
  • Opportunities and Risks for investors

Register now to join more than 500 high net worth and professional investors to discover emerging tech and crypto focused opportunities.
