Hong Kong, November 2, 2021 – AAX (www.aax.com), the world’s first cryptocurrency exchange to be powered by LSEG Technology, has finalized a strong speaker lineup for its annual virtual summit “Bitcoin & Beyond” on 10 Nov., 2021.
In a week’s time, the “Bitcoin & Beyond” virtual summit will take place virtually and present to the world the most important crypto summit of the year. The event will kick off with the Tapscott family delivering the first two keynotes speeches. Don Tapscott, Executive Chairman of the Blockchain Research Institute, is one of the world’s leading figures advocating for the notable impact of technology on business and modern society. His son Alex Tapscott, an entrepreneur, author, and seasoned capital markets professional focused on the impact of Bitcoin, blockchain, and other digital assets will discuss business and financial markets at the global summit.
The summit is not only about Bitcoin and its incredible price appreciation throughout this year. The panelists will most certainly discuss Bitcoin and its network, but also how Bitcoin adoption differs from one country to another, how outer space might provide the ultimate frontier of decentralization, what role crypto media plays in the industry, and more. The summit brings together the most brilliant and creative innovators in the crypto space who will discuss the most pressing issues within the industry.
“This conversation is not just to speculate on what the future may hold, but rather a coming together and exploration of how we can go about creating that future. Bitcoin and Beyond is about really understanding what the implications are of this new asset class and how we can direct all this creative energy that we find across the industry towards the most useful and socially beneficial goals,” said Ben Caselin, Head of Research & Strategy, and co-host at the summit. “The purpose of the summit is to advance discourse, bring clarity and more consensus in order to further amplify the impact of the Bitcoin revolution and unleash the transformative potential of this new monetary system.”
