Digital Asset Summit (DAS) 2020

The Digital Asset Summit (DAS) 2020 is all set to take place in New York City, this summer on May 13th, 2020. The main focus is to facilitate a productive discourse that helps to bridge the gap between the legacy financial system with the emerging world of digital assets, DLTs, Smart Contracts, and similar technologies.

The conference aims to provide a platform for professionals working inside the financial industries, especially FinServe corporations, and investors who either have a stake in the blockchain industry or looking to adopt the distributed ledger infrastructure. Topics involving market infrastructure, trading, and liquidity will take the front and center of the event.
