Past event

How shall financial institutions think about long-term Web3 business strategies considering the current Crypto winter and the Metaverse?

Today we see a lot of instability in the Crypto market with the implosion of the Terra stable coin, Bitcoin plunging below USD 20 000 and Coinbase announcing that they will lay off 18% of its employees. Is this the end of the Crypto saga or just another bump in the road? The development of the Metaverse doesn’t seem to halt and Crypto is still expected to play an essential role, right? Looking forward, how shall you and your organisation handle Crypto, Web3 and the Metaverse? Shall it be a part of your long-term strategy or not?

Join us in a panel discussion with weathered experts in the field of Crypto and Web3. Hear different perspectives and get inspired on how to proceed with these emerging technologies.
