Build and enhance your network to the crypto community.

Join the Crypto Assets Conference which takes place virtually from the campus of the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management 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 1500+ participants 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

Unfortunately, due to public authorities, we now organize the CAC21A purely online. The online conference format has already been part of CAC20B and gives you fascinating insights into the blockchain industry. There will be remote video access while speakers can attend the campus of Frankfurt School of Finance & Management to hold their speeches. Find more information in the "Ticket" section below.
