Cointelegraph is launching Cointelegraph Talks, a series of online events featuring top blockchain and cryptocurrency experts and executives.
The first Cointelegraph Talks event kicks off at 3:00 PM EST on Tuesday, April 21, featuring major industry figures including Binance.US CEO Catherine Coley and Robert Beadles, president at blockchain company Monarch. The meetup’s live stream will be available on Cointelegraph’s YouTube channel.
The event will consist of two panels, at which industry experts will discuss the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the development of digital payments, as well as the digitization of the world’s reserve currency — the United States dollar.
Moderated by Cointelegraph's Stephen Chase, the first panel — "E-Payments in the era of Coronavirus" — will feature Utrust co-founder Filipe Castro, Ternio COO and founder Ian Kane, and Monarch’s Beadles.
At 4:00 PM, Cointelegraph’s policy editor Kollen Post will host a panel called "Greenback 2.0: Outlook for a Digital Dollar," featuring Binance.US’ Coley, Bread App CEO Adam Traidman, and Morgan Ricks, a professor at Vanderbilt University Law School.
Admission to the upcoming Cointelegraph Talk event tonight is free of charge. In order to join the Cointelegraph Talks meetup, attendees should sign up for the event via the Eventbrite page to receive a link for a private Zoom conference.
During the event, Cointelegraph Talks attendees will be able to pose their questions to speakers at a Q&A session on Zoom or the YouTube livestream on Cointelegraph’s YouTube channel.
Crypto conferences and meetups have gone virtual due to the coronavirus
As reported by Cointelegraph, the COVID-19 pandemic caused multiple cancellations and delays for major events in the crypto industry. At the same time, the deadly virus has given a tremendous boost to online crypto events, enabling people from all over the world to attend industry conferences from home.
As such, on April 16–17, top crypto personalities like Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao and ShapeShift founder Erik Voorhees gathered at BlockDown 2020, a major virtual crypto conference that hosted the event in a 3D virtual realm.
