The Information's Q4 Crypto Conference Call

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 • 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Join crypto reporter Jon Victor and editor-in-chief Jessica Lessin for The Information's Q4 Crypto Conference Call.

In addition to our reporters, special guests on the call will include: 

Ryan Selkis, Co-founder and CEO of Messari, an open, trusted source of cryptoasset data. Prior to founding Messari, an early member of Digital Currency Group, where he managed the firm’s seed investing activity, including CoinDesk. He has been an investor and writer in the crypto space since 2013.

Alex Sunnarborg, Co-founder of Tetras Capital, an active hedge fund focused on the emerging blockchain and crypto asset class.

Selected topics include:

  • Institutional Entrants. Traditional financial giants Fidelity & ICE/NYSE are now seeking to provide regulatory friendly market infrastructure for the next wave of (institutional) capital. Additional large and long-term capital has now entered the space in the form of University endowment checks from top schools including Harvard, Stanford, MIT, & Yale.
  • Regulatory Roadmap. The SEC continues to analyze both (1) approving the first crypto ETF & (2) taking action against illegal securities, offerings, & exchanges.
  • Mass Adoption & Scaling Challenges. Public blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum can not both scale to millions of transactions per minute without sacrificing fees &/or decentralization. Some of the most promising technologies addressing scaling include second layer systems like the Lightning Network & Sidechains.
  • Asset Class Growth. We saw the price of Tether slip and the launch of several new stable coins by firms including Gemini and Circle & Coinbase. Bitcoin has continued to maintain support at $6k and altcoin prices have leveled off. Many ETH ICO treasuries have slowed or stopped selling at a loss to fund runway.
