Morning Keynote: Will Crypto Restructure Global Financial and Currency Markets?

At last years keynote, I spoke of the Singularity of Finance: Autonomous Exchanges where I argued for the inevitable transition to a highly decentralized and autonomous infrastructures for the exchange of value. A lot has changed over the last year. This years’ talk takes stock of made and missed predictions and looks at those factors that are needed to make crypto mainstream. Highlighted are efforts towards a “stable coin”, scalable infrastructures, and credible valuation and algorithmic governance.
