Prominent crypto investors converge to discuss how to unburdening Bitcoin trading from the difficulties of exchange & custodial risk/regulatory risk, and how VCs see the opportunities and pitfalls along the way toward a world of trust-minimized ownership and unstoppable trading infrastructure.

- Will O'Brien (Ex-BitGo CEO, Blockchain Capital advisor, angel investor)
- Chris McCann (Proof Of Capital General Partner, ex Greylock partner, Startup Digest founder)
- Tim Draper (the one and only)

And a presentation by Portal CEO Dr. Chandra Duggirala and Eric Martindale (ex-Blockstream engineer strategist, Lemniscap Fund advisor) together unveil the future of sustainable, censorship-resistant crypto trading with the first zero-knowledge cross-chain atomic swaps, built into a wallet that can privately participate in Portal's decentralized liquidity pool.
