Recap of the Crypto Assets Conference in Frankfurt

After our invigorating journey at Bitcoin Amsterdam, we embarked on a train ride to Frankfurt because we received an invitation for the Crypto Assets Conference, hosted by the esteemed Frankfurt School of Management. This prestigious event offered a profound exploration into the realm of crypto-assets, bringing together luminaries, experts, and enthusiasts to dissect the future of digital finance.

Upon entering the conference venue, it was evident that we were among the youngest participants, surrounded by a milieu of prestige accentuated by the presence of institutional partners and industry stalwarts. The conference served as a nexus for traditional players and emerging trends in the crypto space, fostering dialogue and collaboration across diverse sectors.

A poignant moment during the conference was the opportunity to meet Philipp Sadner in person — an encounter that remains tinged with sadness as we grapple with the loss of such an influential figure. Our heartfelt condolences extend to his loved ones and colleagues during this challenging time.

A notable feature of the conference was the provision of a free livestream for all our members, democratizing access to invaluable discussions and insights shared throughout the event. This inclusivity underscored the commitment to fostering broader participation and engagement within the crypto community.
