2. Q3 was a remarkable period for Velvet team-building & planning:
Paris — ETHCC: Our team was able to work in person and take on one of the biggest conferences of the year! We made significant waves at ETHCC as our schedules were all jam-packed from sun-rise to sunset with networking and industry events.
Barcelona Team Meet: August saw the Velvet Team convening in Barcelona for essential in-person strategizing and planning.
3. September the Velvet Team kept on the move with an in-person presence at major crypto conferences:
Permissionless: A key spotlight on the changing regulatory landscape. The crypto community’s focus was notably on recent legal developments with SEC, CFTC, and the broader U.S. regulatory context. Another area of intrigue was the blend of Real World Assets (RWAs) in the crypto realm, underlined by U.S. Treasury yields and ventures in real estate. The rising institutional presence in crypto was unmistakably evident, marked by Wall Street and traditional finance sector attendees.
Messari Mainnet: The crux of conversations revolved around the U.S. regulatory framework and the crypto community, stressing the criticality of cross-party collaboration in formulating crypto policies.
TOKEN 2049: The focus shifted to Asia, showcasing Singapore and Hong Kong as regional crypto titans. The tenacity of DeFi amid market volatilities was highlighted, spotlighting its allure for institutions and the pivotal bridging of conventional finance and the digital ecosystem.
DappCon — Joined over 900 builders from the Ethereum space for a three-day conference in Berlin to network, learn, meet clients and stay up to date on the latest trends in the ecosystem.
