Get your tickets now! Purchase below, this will sell out! (Sorry, no refunds)
All the power of a digital currency but with the stability of fiat, could stable coins be the answer to volatility or do they fundamentally not fit in crypto’s ethos? For years traders have leveraged the stability of stable coins to hold money on exchanges between trades. Fast forward just a few years later and large institutions like Coinbase, Gemeni, and JP Morgan are all throwing their coin into the proverbial fountain. And less obviously (yet so obviously) Facebook appears to have a toe in that fountain as well. Are things about to get a little unstable in the world of stable coins? Come listen to our panel of stable coin experts hash thru it and find out for yourself.
