Metamorphosis 2020 - The Transition of Money

Bengaluru

Hello everyone! Check out the teaser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoCHZeprGV0&feature=emb_logo We've up the ante this time! We're going to Bangalore to host our next conference -- Metamorphosis 2020. India’s Supreme Court’s verdict has lifted the ban over banks to trade with digital asset exchanges/companies and has brought in a multitude of partnerships for Indian startups to explore in the crypto space. This has even given us a tremendous opportunity to pull off the World’s biggest crypto trading competition as well as a blockchain hackathon, in unison with the honor to provide the women in tech with the recognition they deserve - all in one conference. Metamorphosis 2020 is built on the foundations of the disruption Bitcoin accelerated -the transition of money from centralized to decentralized governance, physical to digital and from cents to sats. Metamorphosis is derived from the idea of transitions in nature. How a caterpillar designs a cocoon and isolates itself from the world only to become a butterfly in the proceeding days. Metaphorically, money is transforming and we are here to build for its growth. Visit our official website for more information: https://www.octaloop.com/events/metamorphosis2020/ All you Delhi crypto enthusiasts, I'll see you in Bangalore soon at the biggest crypto conference of India.
