I hope you had a fun and restorative Labor Day weekend. The unofficial end of summer must mean the unofficial start of crypto conference season, because the number of blockchain conferences and events on my radar seems to be ramping up quickly now that September has arrived. Which events will you attend? Any recommendations for ones that I should try to make it to here in New York?
In this week’s newsletter, we have previously unreported details on a new startup founded by four former executives at Block.one. Plus, we look at the crypto market’s reaction to an apparent move by Goldman Sachs to scrap plans for its crypto desk. And don’t forget to register for our third quarter, subscriber-only crypto conference call next Thursday, Sept. 13. We’ll be discussing the competition among smart contract platforms, the merits of enterprise blockchain applications and the likely scenarios for where U.S. regulators will land on crypto.
