The new trend format split between Zurich and Davos
One of the European conference scene’s greatest success stories is back in 2023 with a new trend format. Wrapped around the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF), CryptoSummit.ch kicks off on Monday 16th January at the luxury Hyatt Circle conference centre at Zurich airport and ends on Friday 20th January in Davos. On this special January Monday, for the last 50 years, presidents, CEOs of global corporations and billionaires have descended on Zurich Airport for the WEF annual meeting. It’s one of the hottest events of the year for global movers-and-shakers.
“The new phenomenon which started to take shape during the last years is the gathering of crypto leaders in Davos during the WEF week. The accumulation became a colourful addition and integral part of the Davos WEF week in January. Together we bring to the table the conversation about our future in a decentralized, permissionless and thrustless society, build according to principles of WEB3. These topics are more important than ever and will go on to shape the global society that we live in, which is why, we think it is important to give a proper stage of its own to this audience during the WEF week.” – Olga Feldmeier, founder of CryptoSummit.ch and decade-long crypto industry pioneer.
The theme of CryptoSummit.ch 2023
The theme of the CryptoSummit.ch 2023 is regaining trust in crypto and advancing technology. This timely topic encapsulates the pivotal moment in the industry that we are currently facing. On one hand, crypto demonstrated how it can support countries in crises such as Ukraine, building a resilient parallel financial system for payments and donations. On the other hand, crypto has suffered one of its hardest blows through the Lehman Brothers-style meltdown of the FTX exchange.
Opening with the keynote from Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano Foundation, the first day of the conference in Zurich will focus on technology covering a broad range of topics such as Bitcoin and Ethereum evolution, layer 2 scaling solutions, Defi, Web 3 and applications in the banking industry. The investment section will cover crypto market outlook in 2023, the best investment strategies in a bear market, as well as the institutional move into crypto. In addition, the masterclasses running in parallel to the conference will provide educational content in a compressed crash-course style for beginning crypto investors.
The event will continue at the end of the week, 20th January in Davos, with speeches and panels dedicated to the role this technology can play in shaping how society works. The end of the conference and its culmination point will be the discussion dedicated to most outstanding contributions of individuals during this year for crypto, closing with the 2023 award ceremony in three categories: technology, business and regulation & society.
