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 are..it’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 2.0...it'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?
