The last couple of months have been rocky for crypto and the markets in general. But expectations are that bitcoin and altcoins are soon going to the moon, causing quite a stir – this ‘rumble in the crypto jungle’ is the current sentiment towards cryptocurrencies.
With just under 25 days to go to Crypto Fest 2021, things are heating up and Bitcoin Events is happy to announce the first wave of thought leaders taking part at this year’s event.
From Non-Fungible Token (NFT) hype, the race towards the best smart contract platforms, Decentralised Finance (DeFi) taking on traditional finance, the rise of the NFT gaming metaverse, the boom of P2P trading in Africa, the rise of institutional interest and growth of crypto-focused venture capital; it promises to be a packed day of innovative discussions and networking.
Crypto Fest 2021 will focus on the NFT and DeFi trends, and will bring together a wide network of blockchain and crypto professionals and experts, entrepreneurs, regulators, creatives, major industry executives, and investors.
The event will include 30+ speakers, 25+ free sessions with presentations, panels, Crypto Battles, workshops, Q&A sessions, exhibitions, prizes, and giveaways, and an after-party with live music.
