A decentralised future: Is crypto eating the world?

Wed 20 Apr 2022 / 12:30 (BST), 13:30 (CEST)

About the event

Marc Andreessen was right when he said 11 years ago that software was eating the world. Now crypto is at the tipping point of moving into mainstream adoption and regulators are moving beyond a rudimentary understanding of the sector, is crypto the next hungry giant? This Sifted Talks will explore what the crypto boom holds for startups, scaleups and investors.

We'll be discussing

  1. From no crypto to pro crypto: How will regulation affect the sector? What's needed to support innovation in a way that's safe and secure?
  2. The crypto conundrum: Should your startup start accepting crypto? What are the actual use cases for crypto beyond financial speculation?
  3. Playing it safe: How can startups tell the difference between dubious cryptocurrencies and positive players? What does best practice look like in crypto security?
