Speakers have been announced for the second annual Crypto Valley Conference.

IBM, Dfinity, University College London, LiquidityNetwork, ConsenSys, NEO, R3, EU Commission, Swiss National Bank, WTO, PwC and the Swiss Bankers Association are confirmed at the conference.

With the expanding nature of digital currency, the conversation about cryptocurrency and blockchain is worth having. The inclusion of cryptocurrency in the payments scene make it important to keep track of.

Dr. Alexander Denzler, of Lucerne School of Applied Sciences and Arts, said: “The blockchain space evolves at an incredibly fast pace, and the role of academics in this development must not be underestimated. This conference will be crucial in allowing for actors in the space to interact and learn from each other.”  

Daniel Haudenschild, President of the Crypto Valley Association, said: “This is the second annual Crypto Valley Conference and we are delighted with the calibre of speakers, industry leaders, and developers attending. With the event growing significantly in size and stature, this conference is an important moment for the Swiss blockchain ecosystem, allowing us to showcase our position in the global blockchain industry, and encourage discussions and exchanges of ideas in this rapidly developing sphere.”

Haudenschild concluded: “This year’s Crypto Valley Conference is bound to result in great insights and conversations. Our recent report, in conjunction with PwC, showed movement across the blockchain ecosystem in areas such as regulation, the popularity of Security Token Offerings, and growth of asset tokenization. Collectively these trends will make for thought-provoking insights from both attendees and speakers.”

The conference will take place from June 24th to the 26th in Switzerland. You can find out more about the conference, speakers and what the event entails here.
