That is what I will focus on in this presentation, empowering C Suite executives to educate,engage and evolve in order to remain on the leading edge of industry.

Of course, we cannot help but discuss whether the Libra hearings had a positive or negative effect on the crypto ecosystem and some hurdles to mainstream adoption and proliferation of stablecoins.
The Future of Innovation
In my second panel, Preparing for the Next Wave of Innovation we will discuss whether the future of blockchain is the future of all technology. This discussion will examine the changes in funding structures, innovation, and the evolution of how society organizes itself. From enterprise to decentralized ecosystems, we will discuss how blockchain is likely to evolve to become a part our everyday life and what is needed to get there. I will focus on the impact of blockchain and crypto on education, especially higher ed, and the impact of education on blockchain and crypto.
We will chart the path from pre-Bitcoin computer science breakthroughs, to Bitcoin and the rise of alternative currencies, through Ethereum and the rise of smart contracts, arriving at the present day explosion of tokens, enterprise networks, and regulations governing blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
