Setting the foundation for the future of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, the fourth edition of one of the industry’s flagship events returns.
The Crypto Valley Association (CVA), a leading global blockchain and cryptographic technology ecosystem, has announced the return of the annual Crypto Valley Conference, which will take place from 28-29th October 2021, in Rotkreuz, Switzerland.
In partnership with Innosuisse and sponsored by IEEE, the two day hybrid event will bring together prominent industry leaders across the blockchain, crypto, and emerging technology sectors, as well as government officials and academics to discuss the current state and future of the blockchain industry.
Speakers announced today, who will discuss a broad range of topics spanning economics and finance to law and regulation, include: Thomas Moser, Swiss National Bank; Frederick Gregaard, CEO of Cardano Foundation; Jean-Michelle Pailhon, Head of Ledger Enterprise Solutions; Ilya Volkov, CEO and Founder of YouHodler; Boris Bohrer-Bilowitzki, Chief Revenue Officer of Copper; Paula Petitt, Head of Business Development at Linum Labs; and executives from Bitcoin Suisse, Web 3 Foundation, Bancor Foundation, Polkadot and SDX.
Commenting on the event, Daniel Haudenschild, President of the Crypto Valley Association, said: “We are really excited that the Crypto Valley Conference will run again this year as a hybrid event, giving those making an impact in the industry the opportunity to come together to share their expertise and create new valuable relationships once again. The past year has seen a huge focus on the development of NFTs. The conference will reflect this, with an NFT-focused live stage featuring live performances from Polarrana, a rising pop star who recently tokenized her single with the Crypto Valley Association, the first ever NFT issued under new Swiss blockchain law. The stage will also feature a live NFT auction, an art exhibition, and much more. In addition, special focused, subject-oriented master classes will take place on the 28th October, which will aim to provide tangible, actionable crypto knowledge.”
The event is organised in conjunction with the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. Commenting, Dr. Alexander Denzler, of Lucerne School of Applied Sciences and Arts, said: “It is through the coming together of the best and brightest of the academic world, as well as our counterparts in private and public institutions, that we can devise solutions that will change our world for the better. We are looking forward to working with these luminaries and discussing some of the most pressing issues facing our society today that can be alleviated through innovation in the crypto space, of which there is no shortage.”
With more than 500 attendees and 50+ presentations from global industry leaders, the conference will bring together leading scholars, researchers, developers, CEO’s, CTO’s, legal and government representatives to discuss the latest advances within the blockchain and crypto landscape. Cryptoeconomics, regulatory and compliance challenges, IoT and shared data, smart contract security, cross-border payments, and identity management, are just some of the topics up for discussion over the course of the two days.
Further additions to the list of speakers and the finalized agenda are set to be announced in the coming weeks before the event. Encouraging scholars and academics to take part, the Crypto Valley Conference has issued a call for papers. Find out more here.
