Welcome Talk from Mr. Erik Roussel,

Christopher Giancarlo - ex-chair, CFTC

Modernizing financial infrastructure for the new digital age. How can this challenge be approached and what models are in place?

Adam White - COO Bakkt
Pascal Gauthier - CEO Ledger
Andrew Peel - Head of Digital Asset Markets Morgan Stanley

A fireside chat exploring the evolution of the digital asset industry, where it's heading, and why the institutionalization of digital assets is a building block for consumer applications.

Jeremy Allaire - CEO Circle
Dante Disparte - Vice Chairman Libra Association
Rune Christensen - Founder MakerDAO

Can new forms of digital assets (stablecoins) and infrastructure (self-custody) help solve pain points within the current stack to improve access and lower the cost to provide financial services? Is this actually a tech problem?

Neha Narula - Director MIT Digital Currency Initiative

Given the advent of Libra and China's DCEP, it is clear that central bankers must at least consider issuing digital currency directly. In this talk, we discuss goals behind central bank digital currency (CBDC) and three different technologies that might or might not be helpful in designing CBDC: decentralized consensus protocols, programmable interfaces, and privacy technology.

Simon Weinberger, Managing Director, Scientific Equities at BlackRock

How AI and big data are evolving and driving investment decisions for asset managers.
