The arrival of institutional investment into the crypto space has signaled a number of maturity benchmarks for the likes of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple. As such, it seems like everyone and their mothers are trying to get a grip on this emerging financial asset. As mainstream is turning towards digital currencies, an immediate question arises; where can one get quality investing information?
Traditional Finance Meets Crypto
Wrapping your head around the technical aspects of Bitcoin’s blockchain is one thing, but finding ways to open your portfolio to the digital currency market safely is a whole different ballgame. While age-old advice can undoubtedly prepare you for the balancing act of keeping your holdings in the green, there are key differences that need to be noted when entering the volatile world of cryptocurrencies.
So, how does one avoid the pitfalls and find the highest Alpha? Education.
This year’s BCI Summit on June 11 to June 12, 2018, will look to bring together the innovative aspects that blockchain technology is providing for the legacy financial system.
As an investor-centric discussion, speakers from top startups, venture capital firms, and ex-banking executives will dive into the nuanced strategies to capitalize on the incoming financial revolution. All of it is sure to quench your desire for a knowledgeable-edge in the markets.
The balance of financial experience, best cybersecurity practices, and innovators in the space will, if anything, give a broad overview of the all the moving parts. Most notably, Charlie Shrem, founder of the Bitcoin Foundation, co-founder and former CEO of BitInstant LLC, and one of the loudest voices in the anglicization of Bitcoin, will be sharing his experiences since the pioneer cryptocurrency’s inception.
