The structure of CAC22A: 3 overarching themes

To fully explore the most recent developments in the blockchain and crypto ecosphere, we divided this year’s CAC into three different subject-related topics over three days: (1) Bitcoin, Crypto Assets, DeFi, and NFTs; (2) Digital Securities and Infrastructure; (3) Digital Euro and Digital Identity, Sustainability. The following links below will let you rewatch the whole conference for free.

Expertise and Enlightenment: Our high-profile speakers and sponsors

CAC always strives to offer insightful keynotes and presentations that are to elicit lively discussions. Therefore, our 130+ speakers stem from all areas of public and business interest and were encouraged to elaborate on their perspectives and outlook as well as to interact with an active audience, e.g., by shedding light on the latest EU MiCA-regulation and its implications on the crypto and financial sector. Sascha Rangoonwala (CEO of Coinbase) has expressed his conception that MiCA is a “well-harmonized regime” that addresses the demands of retail and institutional investors, while also pointing to complicating consequences of this landmark legal framework for the crypto industry in the EU.

Easy Interaction — Fast Response: Telegram Group

One of our main goals is to support the direct interaction between our participants, speakers, and the organizing team. Therefore we created a Telegram group with over 700 members. This was especially helpful to let the online audience interact with the speakers on-site by forwarding questions asked in the chat to our moderator. Below are some impressions users shared in the Telegram Group:
