London party

London to discuss macro deal for crypto

NEW YORK, September 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — After a record breaking event in New York City last September, Blockworks’ Digital Asset Summit (DAS) is heading to London for the second installation of this semi-annual event. DAS: London will take place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel October 17-18, 2022. As with the New York-based event, record numbers of investors are expected as governments and institutions recognize the impact and maturation of digital assets.

“The pipeline for institutions entering crypto is stronger than ever,” says Blockworks co-founder Michael Ippolito. “Once banks and asset managers have committed to an asset class, they are no longer scared of market declines. In fact, they more often view them as entry points and that is exactly what we see today.”

DAS: London will bring together financial institutions, family offices, financial advisors, investment banks, crypto protocols, exchanges, RIAs, hedge funds, prime brokers, venture capitalists and other industry professionals to discuss of the evolution of the digital asset class and its status as a macro investment.

More than 700 institutions and 300 funds representing $800 billion of assets under management will be present to hear more than 100 speakers, including:

  • Morgan Stanley, Head of Digital Asset Markets
  • Aave, Founder & CEO
  • Jeanne StreetInstitutional Crypto Sales and Exchanges
  • Binance, VIP & Institutional Manager
  • Valkyrie, co-founder and CEO
  • Coinbase, Head of Institutional Sales EMEA
  • S&P Global Ratings, Chief DeFi Officer
  • London Stock Exchange Group, Director of Emerging Technologies

The past two years of sold-out attendance and rapid industry growth has prompted Blockworks to expand the topics covered at the two-day conference, including:

  • Crypto Institutional Lending Market
  • Institutional access to DeFi
  • Bailouts: The Crypto Financial Crisis
  • Burning Bridges: Addressing Cross-Chain Hacks and DeFi Security
  • Regulatory clouds on the horizon
  • Building the Infrastructure for Institutional Crypto Adoption

Through fireside chats, panels and networking opportunities, including an exclusive dinner for VIP guests and speakers, and an after-party open to all attendees, guests will have access to unprecedented information shared by leaders in traditional finance and the crypto ecosystem.
