Event Details

The future is decentralized, and it's already begun. Join us for a state of the union on the decentralization movement! Now that initial pilots are here, what are next steps? We will connect audiences from San Francisco, Swisspost Bern, Trustsquare, and Crypto Valley through live-feeds for a truly international dialogue on the state of blockchain. We welcome you for Coffee & Bagels at 9am in San Francisco while we virtually connect with specialists from Switzerland’s Crypto Valley (drinking beer at 5pm, Swiss time). We will research two main questions:

  • How do the hotbeds of blockchain innovation differ? This decentralized movement asks for a multi-national multi-directional conversation, and we are providing an open channel between Switzerland and Silicon Valley.
  • How is academia thinking differently than VCs? We bring both to the table.

The keynote and panels include a virtual 5 minute Q&A from a global audience in San Francisco, Swisspost Bern, Trustsquare/UZH, and the Crypto Valley Association. 

Note: These are tickets for the San Francisco based event only. In Zürich? Sign up here.
