ICR Launches Digital Asset Series


First Virtual Event Presented April 19 with CEOs of Bakkt and eToro

Panelists to Discuss the Outlook For Digital Assets, Blockchain-based Payments, Banking, NFTs, and the Regulatory Environment

NEW YORK – April 20, 2022 – ICR announces the debut of the firm’s Digital Asset Series, a new virtual event forum designed to expand the blockchain and digital asset ecosystem through thought-provoking and insightful conversations with high profile executives across the industry.

The first event in the series will be presented on April 19 and will feature a conversation hosted by ICR SVP Juan Arias with Gavin Michael, CEO of Bakkt, a leading technology platform that enables consumers, businesses, and institutions to unlock the value of digital assets including cryptocurrency; as well as Yoni Assia, Co-founder and CEO of eToro, the world’s leading social investing platform that aims to revolutionize the way people invest and enhance investors’ financial education in products such as crypto, equities, commodities and currencies.

The event on April 19 will begin at 11:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. PT and those interested can register here.

ICR will host its second virtual event in the series on April 26 featuring a fireside chat with Stephen Ehrlich, CEO and Co-founder of Voyager Digital, one of the fastest growing centralized cryptocurrency platforms in the United States. Additional events will be held on May 3, May 10 and May 17, with featured speakers to be announced at a later date, each further exploring the future of digital assets as well as the regulatory environment.

Blockchain technology has laid the foundation for explosive growth in cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. In fact, the global cryptocurrency market-cap reached an all-time high of nearly $3 trillion at the end of 2021. The continued adoption of blockchain, its technology and the numerous products it supports, has vast and potentially indeterminable implications for business, government, and citizens worldwide. The topics discussed at each event are intended to help educate public and private investors and C-suite executives on the opportunities and real-world applications presented by the digital assets ecosystem.
