May 3, 2022 — The Capital, the first virtual conference held by industry-leading news and data platform CoinMarketCap in the Metaverse, will gather some of the most influential experts in crypto to examine and break down Web3’s most successful use cases for blockchain adoption, what has worked so far, and where to go from here.

“The theme of The Capital is ‘Time to Ship’ — one of the main reasons that I’m excited to speak at CoinMarketCap’s first-ever online conference. This unique, Metaverse-based event will focus on crypto products that are delivering real solutions right now, not at some nebulous time in the future, which is incredibly important to highlight in our support of the cryptocurrency revolution,” said Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, founder and CEO of Binance.

Web3 and the Metaverse have been globally accepted as our future reality, but not all strategies developed by projects in the space are able to succeed. 

The Time to Ship conference aims to bring the industry’s most reputable leaders to provide discussion and insight on impactful development strategies that overcome key challenges and how the industry can be collaboratively moved forward. 

Along with Binance’s CZ, other thought leaders speaking at the conference include MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor, Jan3 CEO Samson Mow and more. 

The immersive, two-day Metaverse experience will consist of diverse tracks including decentralized finance, Metaverse, play-to-earn, NFTs and various Layer-1 ecosystems, all live-streamed to an audience of over 5,000 worldwide. Projects shipping Web3 products will showcase how they have gained traction, provide development walkthroughs and go-to-market journeys, and share strategies to help accelerate blockchain adoption. These include The Sandbox, Near Protocol, Polygon, Harmony, Boba Network, Biconomy, Axie Infinity, Yield Guild Games and Reef, among many others. 

“The Capital will showcase solutions that demonstrate crypto’s impact on global economic, social and political systems while inspiring the next generation of crypto users and builders. Our hope is that participants will not only gain valuable insights about the crypto revolution from thought leaders and builders, but that they will also see CoinMarketCap in a new light with the new and immersive experiences during and following the conference,” said Rush, CEO of CoinMarketCap.

Events will include keynotes, fireside chats, panels and virtual hands-on workshops for participants. The Capital 2022 comes off the back of a successful live conference in 2019 with over 80 speakers and more than 1,000 attendees. By introducing the most successful case studies via the industry’s strongest experts, The Capital aims to inform, inspire and mobilize the wider crypto community to further accelerate blockchain adoption throughout the world.
