- Analysis of the current dApp and web3 ecosystem — what are the bottlenecks to widespread consumer adoption?
- From the entrepreneur’s perspective, discussing how to build blockchain/crypto startups from inception to fundraising
- Tech crypto vs. money crypto debate: where will value accrue for this nascent asset class?
- What do current tech companies think of blockchain/crypto?
- Can blockchains simultaneously be scalable, private, and secure? How will emerging tech like ZK-SNARKS/STARKS, FHE, and sharding play a role?
- Live blockchain/crypto startup demos and interactive workshops
