What's next in crypto?

What will 2019 have in store for exchanges and other crypto companies hit by last year's price crash?

Join crypto reporter Jon Victor and Asia bureau chief Shai Oster for our Q1 2019 Crypto Conference Call to learn what's going on behind the scenes during this crypto winter. 

We'll be joined by Arthur Hayes, co-founder & CEO of BitMEX, to gain insight into what happened in the industry last year and what trends are worth following as the bear market continues.

Selected topics for this call include: 

  • How will institutional crypto trading products from Fidelity and the New York Stock Exchange compete with those by existing startups?
  • What effect will new cryptocurrencies by Facebook and JPMorgan have on the market? 
  • How have BitMEX and other crypto companies weathered the downturn in prices?
  • How have trading volumes been affected?
  • Could BitMEX follow other big exchanges Coinbase and Circle and look to raise capital?

BitMEX is a cryptocurrency trading platform that gives retail investors access to the global financial markets using cryptocurrency products. BitMEX operates the most liquid Bitcoin/USD trading product, XBTUSD, which features 100x leverage, and volumes on average are over $3 billion per day.
