The Crypto Gibraltar Festival 2022 takes place from September 22-24 and will bring together the crypto business world and the new world of the metaverse.
Pete Burgess, the organizer of the festival says: “Gibraltar’s foundation as a financial jurisdiction is regulation – often seen as the old world – but Gibraltar is also an enabler and hotbed of cutting edge innovation, particularly in the payments sector.”
He continues, “In a sense, Gibraltar is a microcosm of the DeFi / CeFi debate. It introduced the very first DLT regulatory framework which has attracted many of the world’s biggest crypto operators such as Bitso, eToroX and LMAX Digital, and yet many crypto purists will say that this regulation encourages centralization – the very opposite of the original crypto philosophy. That “tension” is what produces great debates and stage content at the Crypto Gibraltar Festival.”
This year the festival is due to attract over 1,000 people and will be based in a specially created “Crypto Village” next to Gibraltar airport. It will feature a 700-seat theatre, an exhibition area, an NFT gallery, and a networking lounge.
“The main reason people attend conferences is to connect. Many people go to conferences and never set eyes on a stage,” says Burgess.
“Crypto Gibraltar is primarily a networking event and is structured to facilitate that. We have two half-days of serious conference sessions, but we also have a purpose-built networking lounge and we create enough time periods during the day to make productive use of it.”
