RECAP: MSTC 2022
For the first time, the leading minds of the regulated digital assets industry gathered in Bavaria’s beautiful capital to discuss the hottest topics that will shape tomorrow’s capital markets and financial services. The live-conference happened from October 6–8, 2022, with special side events the day before and the day after.
ABOUT THE EVENT
Blockchain technology and the tokenization of securities are currently on the fast track to revolutionize capital markets and unlock billions in value. The development pace and dynamic changes of this next generation financial products often make it difficult to keep track of the current state. Born by the idea of connecting the dots, mstc’s mission is to provide the most up-to-date overview where the digital asset space is headed.
By joining forces, mstc.live brings together an international group of industry leaders, renowned scientists and practitioners to connect and give answers to the open questions of tokenization. The Munich Security Token Conference not only covers top-level content through the lens of regulation, innovation and practical application in finance, but also aims to establish a platform for exchange between thought and industry leaders.
