The art of the possible in crypto and digital assets: opportunities and challenges

Join our panel of EY leaders as they share their perspectives on the opportunities and challenges associated with decentralized finance, cryptocurrencies and digital assets.

The digital asset ecosystem has the potential to completely transform the existing financial services infrastructure and the overall customer experience. Decentralized finance has arrived, utilizing blockchain technology to alter financial services while potentially lessening the need for financial intermediaries. Regulators in the U.S. continue to consider and propose regulation, however, there remains great uncertainty of surrounding their specific expectations and limitations. The multitude of new crypto related financial products is causing both excitement and caution in the ecosystem.

The emergence of these new technologies and products is anticipated to alter the competitive landscape for traditional financial services firms.  Whether you’re a crypto-native or traditional financial services firm, you will need to find new ways to compete and manage risk in an increasingly digital world.

In this webcast, panelists will provide insights into the following areas:

  • The future of crypto and digital assets
  • Market sector progression and pace
  • Identifying pockets of customer demand
  • New products and prospects
  • Possible disruptions to growth
