Bridging the Gap Between Secondary Markets and Blockchain

As the crypto and blockchain industries evolve and the price of Bitcoin continues to fluctuate, serious players in the secondary markets are still quite skeptical about the future of digital assets. While many reputable exchanges like Gemini and Coinbase are only limiting trading to top coins, they have yet to acquire a substantial portion of the institutional community.

Are more and more blockchain use-cases come to light and a wide range of VC-backed companies are forming, we must ask ourselves will the funding run out? What are the obstacles that we face with adoption and does the secondary market play a role in its ultimate success?

We are seeing institutions like Fidelity and Bakkt trying to remedy some custody issues but it’s a slow and steady process. Meanwhile, the industry still needs to solve for regulatory frameworks, convertibility, hedging instruments, scalability concerns and more.

Join a select group of subject matter experts at the innovative Microsoft Flagship venue as they provide their insights on everything from the sentiment and role of secondary markets in today’s industry, the likeliness of blockchain adoption outside of the crypto-sphere and many other topics.

·       Mike Rogers, Founder of Millennials in Blockchain (MIB)
