Role of Custodians & Exchanges in DeFi ecosystem

Online event

This panel focuses on digital assets custody and its implication for the future adoption of digital assets.

The total crypto market is now above $US 2 trillion for the first time in history with an acceleration of institutions’ adoption. Companies like Tesla, Square, and Microstrategy publicly reported that they transferred a part of their cash reserve in Bitcoin. With more institutional players entering the market, the issues of security, regulatory compliance, and custody of digital assets are the number one questions that need to be answered.

In this panel, we will explore the impact of Custody solutions so participants can understand how they work. We will also provide an overview of the current digital custody landscape and the market solutions, as well as the challenges and uncertainties the industry is facing.

‘Role of Custodians & Exchanges in DeFi ecosystem’ belongs to the event series about different blockchain topics that are brought together by BLOCKROCKET. BLOCKROCKET is an early-stage investor and digital accelerator program for blockchain startups in Germany that helps startups, corporates, and investors leverage the potential of blockchain technology.

Digital Assets, DeFi, NFTs: How to secure existing & enable new business

Not only the recent boom of cryptocurrencies, but all the developments in that space over the past 3-4 years have turned the blockchain industry into a segment of innovation leaders and paradigm shifters.

And the role of the financial industry was a crucial one in this - becoming the first sector to implement important technical building blocks and thus paving the way for the adoption of the new asset class: Custody and digital asset management in general, smart contracts to drive applications such as DeFi or to prepare the introduction of programmable money.

So it's time to take a detailed look at the operational reality of custody and digital asset management today, and to get prepared for the next phase: when regulation will fully cover the Token Economy and when the Digital Euro will change the landscape of industrial processes forever. Because if we look at the rapid evolution of the market today, it is clear that it is key to get the fundamentals right; otherwise the wave of service innovation and extended capabilities around financial instruments will be built on quicksand.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

“The influence of the technological Avant-garde: Tokenization meets Cyber-Physical Systems”
Prof. Philipp Sandner, Head of Frankfurt School Blockchain Center
Alexander Koppel, CEO of RIDDLE&CODE
Prof. Thomas Fürstner, Founder and CTO of RIDDLE&CODE

"Digital Asset Custody: The operational view & status quo“
Dr. Sven Hildebrandt, CEO of DLC Distributed Ledger Consulting
Dr. Ulli Spankowski, CDO of Börse Stuttgart
Julian Grigo, MD Digital Assets, Solaris Bank
Moritz Schildt, Chairman of CoinIX, Founder of the Hanseatic Blockchain Institute
Berit Fuss, Director RIDDLE&CODE FinTech Solutions

"AML and DeFi: How to ensure regulatory compliance in the future"
Jacek Trzmiel, Senior Regulatory Affairs Advisor at Coinfirm
Christian Haslwanter, COO of RIDDLE&CODE
