To the Moon: Blockchain-based Currencies as an Asset Class

September 21, 2017

Location: Coinbase – 1 Front Street, Suite 31
San Francisco, CA 94107
Event Registration

Please join the Hedge Fund Association for a keynote speech and extended Q&A session with Olaf Carlson-Wee, the founder and CEO of blockchain asset hedge fund Polychain Capital. Carlson-Wee will share new insights about the rise of bitcoin and blockchain technologies, and why he believes that digital assets could compete or disrupt many of the centralized web services that dominate the internet today.  Ultimately, Carlson-Wee estimates that blockchain-based tokens could eventually be valued in the “trillions.”

Beyond potential outsized returns for investors, the ex-Head of Risk for Coinbase will explain how digital tokens are enabling new monetizing opportunities for developers, and why they are working to build an open source, peer-to-peer protocol.

This symposium is sponsored by Coinbase and Department for International Trade.  Admission is complimentary for Hedge Fund Association (HFA) and California Hedge Fund Association (CHFA) members, and $25 for future HFA members.  Pre-registration is required.  Attendees will enjoy an informed discussion, cocktails and networking.  Space is limited RSVP today.
