Dear steemians,

6 Month I was waiting for it for the  BLOCKCHAIN ECONOMIC FORUM and finally I have the opportunity to follow it here! Here is  the live streaming. I hope you enjoy:

with @LATokens Valentin Preobrazhenskiy on VB Engage. My favorate influencer in on the stage @mikojava , you rock !

Some of the pre mentioned citation in my previous post:

Blattmann emphasized that investors do not have to worry about the safe storage of bitcoins. "If Swisscom customers do not have to fear the loss of Bitcoins, CEO Bürki assures us:" As a bank, we guarantee the safe custody account. "This does not apply to Leonteq certificates. It says: "Any losses (...) resulting from fraud, theft and cyber attacks are born by the investors." Manuel Dürr, however, concludes that the company has taken measures to minimize a "risk of loss". »Leonteq Bitcoins, for example, considers itself to be largely in cold storage - that is, separate from the Internet. Also Vontobel and Swissquote hold only a small part of Bitcoins online.In addition to hacker attacks, there are further uncertainties for Bitcoin.

Here is the life streaming of the conference happing today and tomorrow:

 

 

Thus, Bitcoin exchanges are not very liquid: "For larger transactions there is a risk that the price slips," explains Bürki. Certificates are also affected: if the market no longer works, "we can no longer offer courses for our product," says Blattman.Bitcoin splits are also a challenge for product suppliers. If Bitcoins were held directly in August, the new currency «Bitcoin Cash» (BCH) was automatically owned. Bürki explains that Swissquote will pay the new digital currency directly to customers in the case of spin-offs. Vontobel and Leonteq also grant the customer's participation.

Let's whats togheter the conference and comment here what we find interesting?

I would be honoured to hear your opinion on that.

Best

Francesco

Great ideas from the conference. The first speaker confirms huge developments if the big businesses jump in, just preparing to start buying in cryptospace probably Bitcoin.

"So the reason that.. you see guys like Jamie Dimon and talking about Bitcoin.. he is talking his book. I think Jamie Dimon realizes deep down what i'm predicting for a long time and that is banks will become as plentyful and as useful as blockbuster video stores.. They going away.. they are middlemen. This is not.. this is not a good time to be a middleman."

"What's the difference between a venture capitalist and a travel agency? Anybody?.. Nothing!.. nothing, they are both middlemen."

"But Wallstreet is not involved. That's why Bitcoin is going up. Because they are starting now taking their positions. ..there are 94 hedge funds in formation to buy digital currency. What are they gonna buy? They are gonna buy Bitcoin until they figure out the space and that's why Bitcoin has a bid."

Thank you for sharing this video!
