What is the future of cryptocurrency and how is it enabling emerging countries to become major players in the global economy? In this session, you'll learn about the key factors driving its success in these markets, the latest decentralized finance trends, and the usability challenges that are inhibiting mass adoption.
Join Hilary Kivitz (former a16z partner and crypto angel investor/advisor) and Christopher Ries and Ryan McNutt (co-founders of SphereOne) who will share new perspectives about the effectiveness of crypto rails in countries without access to core financial services and asset classes.
