The Future Of Finance: Is ETH 2.0 About To Have Its Defining Moment?

$2bn of Eth is currently locked in Defi smart contracts, a number rising exponentially since the start of the year. Aren’t ICO’s dead? (Spoiler: They’s something else this time)

Lex Sokolin of Consensys, one of the most respected voices in Fintech brings us his unique perspective on the state of the market.

We’ll be covering:

  • Money printer goes Brrr.. Stocks go up. Is the new normal sustainable?

  • What are the potential consequences of Covid 19 on crypto and blockchain adoption?

  • Is it more a question of when, not if CBDC's s will gain mass adoption?

  • How will this come about?

  • Eth's finally here! (Maybe). What are the wider implications on de-fi and the ecosystem?

  • Staking as a Service, why is this so important?

  • Outside of centralised exchanges, where will we find our first Blockchain unicorn?
