Build and enhance your network to the crypto community.

Join the Crypto Assets Conference which takes place on the campus of the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and virtually on May 31 and June 1 & 2, 2021.

 
 

Why attend?

Affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and current regulative efforts, digital assets are experiencing a boost in popularity on private and institutional levels. This comprises a huge spectrum of  crypto assets, like Bitcoin and decentralized finance, digital securities and their infrastructure as well as the digital euro and identity  – all based on decentralized networks. Covering top-level content about current trends in DLT, blockchain and crypto assets through speeches, discussions or pitches, a diverse range of industry experts and thought-leaders will unite at the leading European crypto conference. Join 100 guests on each of the 3 days or 1500+ online to collaborate and interact with peers and experts and to get up to date on the following topics:

  • Day 1 (Mon., May 31, 2021): Bitcoin, Crypto Assets and Decentralized Finance

  • Day 2 (Tue., June 1, 2021): Digital Securities and Infrastructure

  • Day 3 (Wed., June 2, 2021): Digital Euro and Identities

Because of the current situation, the CAC21A will take place on site in Frankfurt but also online participation is possible. There will be remote video access and regular offline tickets. Find more information in the "Ticket" section below.

CAC21A in Hybrid Mode

The Crypto Assets Conference 2021A was initiated to allow for the interaction between like-minded experts, leading to a constructive exchange. Especially during times of social distancing, we believe that meeting personally is crucial for a valuable discussion. 

To enable participation for attendees and speakers that can currently not join physically, the CAC21A will be held in a hybrid format, allowing for both, online and on-site participation in Frankfurt:

  • Keynotes, presentations, and panel discussions will be streamed to our Frankfurt School conference platform and to the Audimax, which will be accessible by all (remote/physical) participants with a valid ticket.

  • For those people who decide to come to Frankfurt School physically, we will nevertheless have booths, experts and more on site to stimulate networking and getting to know each other - all compliant with current distancing rules and recommendations.

As we want no one to be excluded from participating while still enabling physical exchange, we decided on physical networking and a hybrid (remote/physical) conference.

If you have any questions concerning the hybrid mode, feel free to contact us.

AGENDA

WHAT IS A CRYPTO ASSET & TOKEN?

Traditional assets store value and provide economic benefits while the rights of ownership are enforced by institutions. Crypto assets are a new class of assets, which combines the advantages of digitalisation while the right of ownership is cryptographically secured.

WHAT IS A CRYPTO CURRENCY?

Crypto currencies can provide store of value or function as means of payments. Like fiat currencies, its value is based on trust. However, in contrast to traditional currencies, they are not backed up by a centralized institution and are not connected to a national economy. They are secured on a blockchain and their values are driven by market demand and expectations. Each crypto currency has its own monetary policy and specific use. Some are more innovative than other while more popular ones are built on their head start and network effect.

WHAT IS THE DIGITAL EURO?

The digital Euro (also: the digital, programmable Euro) is an innovative and digital form of the Euro that includes the Euro as a stablecoin, as tokenized commercial bank and e-money, or as a CBDC. The digital Euro has to be distinguished from existing electronic forms of the Euro, such as bank deposits.
