Crypto Valley and the flood of institutional investors
The end of 2020 took the crypto market by storm with an exponential increase in the value of cryptocurrencies.
Major corporations and financial institutions, including MicroStrategy, BNY Mellon, MasterCard, and PayPal, got strongly involved with cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, BlackRock and an investment division at Morgan Stanley are exploring investing in Bitcoin.
Switzerland is one of the oldest and friendliest jurisdictions in the world when it comes to the regulation of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. It is the only jurisdiction in the world where it is possible to incorporate a company, pay taxes, and hire consultants using crypto.
Switzerland has established itself and evolved as a leading, innovative, and sustainable location for FinTech and DLT companies, with a strong network of service providers, such as Brokers, Crypto Banks, and Crypto Asset Managers.
Under the current circumstances, How has the flood of institutional investments been experienced in Crypto Valley? And what are the prospects for the near future?

Crypto Valley Top 50 Protocols Debate on Scalability and Interoperability
Nobody can argue that decentralized finance is blockchain’s “killer use case.” The total value locked in DeFi grew more than 3,000% over the course of last year leading up to January 2021.
The DeFi ecosystem has shown impressive growth. However, the more applications enter the space, the more evident the need for further scalability and interoperability becomes.
The current downsides of DeFi - slow confirmation times and exorbitant fees – are a high priority to tackle.
We gather some of the leading Crypto Valley Top 50 protocols - Ethereum, NEAR, Polkadot, and Cosmos - to discuss “Scalability and Interoperability” in blockchains.
What is the status of the industry? What developments can we expect?
How can the DeFi world as we know it be re-shaped in the near future?

From a virtual 3D experience during BlockDown #1, through to live streaming in 3 diﬀerent languages for the second iteration, and a Halloween spectacular for BlockDown 3.0 – each BlockDown event brings gusto and inspiration to an already forward-thinking space.
Our annual blockchain developer event will set the stage for the major reveal of Lisk's Interoperability solution.
