Crypto Assets Conference in Frankfurt

Crypto Assets Conference in Frankfurt is the best place to learn about the state of affairs when it comes to the blockchain, crypto assets and distributed ledger technology in Germany and also elsewhere in the world.Zigurat’s team attended the last conference that took place from 25th to 26th of February, 2019. The goal of the event was to bring together technology experts, thought-leaders, industry innovators, crypto investors and blockchain entrepreneurs in order to discuss the future of blockchain and its implications on the world. The line-up of more than 60 speakers covered a range of topics from cryptocurrencies to enterprise solutions, with the goal to address everything related to blockchain technologies in finance. Those tech experts see blockchain as the next unstoppable and world-changing technology which can leverage ideas into global business. Topics such as the impact of crypto-currencies on international trade, adoption of crypto-commodities in order to reinvent business models to face today’s monopolies and crypto-tokens’ positive impact on crowdfunding, venture capital and other possible industries were discussed. The organizer of the event, Prof. Dr. Philipp Sandner, who in 2018 was ranked as one of the “Top 30” German economists by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and belongs to the “Top 40 under 40” – a ranking by the German business magazine Capital, is a man that does not need an introduction in the German Crypto circles. Head of the Blockchain Center at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, he is also a professor of Zigurat’s Global Master’s in Blockchain Technologies. In his comment to Zigurat, he expressed hope that the event also serves as a platform where people of the same field can get to know each other better and do business there, as has been the case of the previous editions. The fact that the conference takes place already the second time this year reflects the interest in this type of gathering.
