THIS IS A PHYSICAL EVENT. NO REMOTE PARTICIPATION POSSIBLE.
Blockchain technology, since its emergence, has created hundreds of digital assets and spurred new business models on decentralized networks. Due to its rapid evolution, the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center organizes the Crypto Assets Conference, inviting executives, founders, investors, and representatives from public authorities to discuss the latest insights into this disruptive technology.
Since the spring edition of the #CAC20, the environment and the key players in the area of crypto assets, blockchain, and DLT have considerably developed. These developments motivated us to organize a new edition this October, which we call, #CAC20B.
During three days, participants will be introduced to the latest insights through speeches, discussions, pitches, and will also have the possibility to expand their network. The #CAC20B will focus on three core topics each day: different speakers, different participants, and different booths, enabling the union of groups with diverse interests and to ignite an insightful exchange of ideas.
Join and get up to date on the following topics:
Day 1 (Thursday, October 29, 2020): Digital Assets, Securities, and Infrastructure
Day 2 (Friday, October 30, 2020): Crypto and Custody
Day 3 (Saturday, October 31, 2020): Digital Euro and Stablecoins
Important notice: The #CAC20B conference will take place on the Frankfurt School campus and be held under strict rules to avoid the propagation of the COVID-19. Besides the hygiene measures, we are only accepting a maximum of 130 guests per day to ensure your safety and health on-site.
