On 9/10 March 2020, the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center, together with financial.com, is organizing the Crypto Asset Conference on the campus of the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management for the third time. Blockchain technology was born through the invention of Bitcoin and has since then created hundreds of digital assets and spurred the development of business models building on decentralized networks. The conference covers both the public blockchain (crypto assets) and the enterprise blockchain domain (DLT).
CAC20 makes the audience familiar with the current trends in DLT, blockchain and crypto assets:

  1. Custody of digital assets, Bitcoin and other crypto assets, token
    protocols, decentralized finance (DeFi)
  2. Blueprint DLT-based capital market, tokenized securities, securitized
    tokens (ETFs)
  3. Digital euro, tokenizations of cash flows, machine-2-machine payment
    processes
  4. Investors’/VCs preferences, security tokens
  5. Regulatory developments in Germany (new crypto law, blockchain
    strategy) and the Liechtenstein Blockchain Act.

Prof. Dr. Philipp Sandner, Head of the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center describes the aim of the event stated,

“As in the previous years, our conference in March 2020 aims to bring together leading experts, thought leaders, founders and decision-makers to jointly shape the future of Blockchain, Crypto Assets and DLT. In addition to the European Central Bank, the European Commission and BaFin, the most important protagonists from corporations and start-ups that Germany has to offer will be guests at the
conference.”

Participants will get firsthand insights on the latest market developments, trends and research results, completed with valuable discussions and a networking platform that brings together established & new market participants in a professional context.
