Delegates discuss whether Switzerland, with its history of secure and discreet private banking, is set to become the global crypto finance capital
The event, which boasts a colourfulprogramme consisting of workshops, keynotes and panel discussions, is set to bring together some of the biggest disruptors in crypto funding to share their experience and best practice for successful ICO execution.
The conference, which takes place on 15 September in Zurich, will open with a keynote from William Mougayar, one of the key thought leaders in the crypto financing field and also a researcher and an investor in the Bitcoin and Blockchain space. There will also be a pitch session, for which the most promising startups will be selected to share their ideas.
SMART VALOR CEO, Olga Feldmeier, will be hosting a morning presentation on Swiss Finance in Transition, discussing Switzerland’s potential to become a global crypto finance capital. As one of the major figures in bringing about the first significant regulatory case licensing of crypto currency custodian (Xapo), Feldmeier is well placed to comment on the changing finance industry. Feldmeier will also join an afternoon panel discussion on the Investor Journey: From Bitcoin to VC, alongside Richard Muirhead, General Partner at Open Ocean, and Eric van der Kleij, CEO at the Centre for Digital Revolution.
“We’re excited to be attending The ICO Summit alongside so many other innovative companies in the Blockchain industry,” says Feldmeier. “SMART VALOR’s mission is ultimately to make investment accessible via its Blockchain-based decentralised network, which enables users to create and distribute tokenized investments. The ICO Summit is set to come as one of the first truly global crypto events in Switzerland, and we’re looking forward to sharing this with the wider crypto community.”
