Cracking the Crypto Code: A panel discussion which touched on the pain points of institutional capital.

The session discussed the value of cryptocurrencies and decentralization, open and trustless infrastructure for value exchange, contrarian views on the need for regulation, and the challenges ahead for the institutionalization of cryptoasset markets.

LCX stands together with the World Economic Forum in understanding the potential of cryptoassets, and in guiding traditional institutions and decision makers as the industry continues to evolve. It is extremely important for the industry to engage in forums like these; steering the conversation to not just promote the underlying value of cryptoassets, but also to serve as ambassadors to the legitimacy and sophistication of the asset class.

Overall, the event has brought together like-minded innovators and entrepreneurs, and LCX is excited about the abundance of partnership possibilities WEF has provided for all the participants.
