Crypto has now attracted Institutional level diligence and scrutiny, to pave way for institutional money to come in. We are hosting the world’s first ever institutional asset manager summit for crypto in Switzerland, home to both old money and new. The Swiss Crypto Asset Summit 2019 will be held on 19-20 January ahead of the World Economic Forum 2019, which has already witnessed crypto’s meteoric rise and heralded it as the trend for the next decade. World Economic Forum 2017 is when crypto went mainstream, where country premieres and several global leaders went home determined to embrace blockchain. WEF2019 will usher in the mass movement for security tokens and institutional capital embracing crypto. Ladies and Gentlemen, it is our privilege to precipitate that movement on the precipitous cliffs of Alps.
We welcome the most influential institutional asset managers to debate what the opportunities are, and what is lacking in the crypto industry today before crypto becomes integrated in the bastions of old finance, changing the game for everyone for once and all. Set in the magestic setting of the Kulm Resort in the Engadine, and coinciding with the St Moritz Gourmet Festival, it promises to be a memorable experience to take in sensory as well as cerebral stimulation. Cryptocurrencies as an asset class have come of age, to earn the validation of institutional money, which is a long term bet and not a short term speculative frenzy.
