Crypto + Blockchain: The Future Of The Financial World
2021 is an exciting year for cryptocurrencies as their prices continue to rise at an unstoppable pace. Crypto businesses such as exchanges have grown exponentially, and traditional financial market players have become increasingly interested in these assets. The adoption of Bitcoin and other virtual assets is set to increase among the significant tech-friendly population amidst the burgeoning startup environment in the UAE, according to Arshad Khan, CEO of Arabian Bourse. With the increase in online trading activities over the course of the past pandemic-ridden year, UAE-based investors are appearing to diversify their investments by including bitcoin and other virtual assets in their portfolios.
We are thrilled to invite you to our webinar on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, with our expert speakers, Arshad Khan (Co-Founder and CEO, Arabian Bourse), Sharjil Ahmed (Co-founder & Chief Executive Officer, Cykube UK), and Irina Heaver (Crypto & Blockchain Lawyer in Dubai) – who will discuss what lies ahead in the financial world.
This webinar’s focus would be on business & investment trends and regulatory issues, and governance of crypto and blockchain technology.
The webinar is recommended for entrepreneurs and business owners seeking to understand how crypto and blockchain technology can play a role in helping raise funds, lowering costs and higher liquidity.
Attendees can use the Q&A functionality in the webinar to ask the panellists any relevant question. The webinar will be moderated by Creative Zone’s CEO, Lorenzo Jooris.
