    Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, DeFi, Metaverse, NFT, Stablecoins are being discussed every day, but what do they mean exactly? Are they the building blocks for the future of finance, or a market driven trend?

    20 years ago, many were asking themselves similar questions about the Internet, and since then we have witnessed the ongoing transformation of the Web. Today, it is important for all those who would like to understand the future of Web3 and Digital Assets to become better informed and gain a greater understanding of blockchain and the concept of decentralisation, the Metaverse and tokenization and how these concepts will shape the future.

    July 5, Tuesday - 09:00 AM to 03:00 PM


    This workshop is designed for those who find the developments in Digital Assets fascinating, and think that there could be interesting applications for Digital Assets but would like to start with clear and unbiased foundational knowledge.

    The workshop will take participants through the taxonomy of Digital Assets, define the important terms, highlight the confluence of factors that have suddenly accelerated the interest in this sector, and discuss the regulatory implications.

    The workshop will address why you should care about digital assets and why now? It will explain the applications of digital assets, as well as the benefits and risk considerations, and much more.

    Participants will work on case studies, experiment with NFTs by opening their own digital wallet and get a practical understanding of this new digital world.

    This interactive and immersive workshop is tailored for professionals ranging from mid-management to senior leadership interested in understanding these new building blocks of financial services and how it will impact the future of work and business transactions. The workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to engage with one another and understand different perspectives and insights within a closed and private environment.
