Global Outlook for Asset-backed Cryptocurrencies: 

Real Estate, Energy, and Loans Portfolios


Join us as we talk to industry leaders and learn about their engagement with asset-backed cryptocurrencies in real estate, equities, commodities, debt/fixed income and energy and their global outlook in this nascent space!

As some semblance of rationality begins to enter the highly volatile and dicey global cryptocurrency market, the pestering question of what a coin is worth shifts to center stage. With no valuation models to support currencies like Bitcoin or Ether, asset-backed cryptocurrencies represent an emerging opportunity to attach a coin's value to an underlying asset, potentially increasing liquidity for the asset and the token. This creates new opportunities (and risks) for practically every industry, including real estate, equities, commodities, debt / fixed income and energy.
