Bringing DeFi to the Mass: How We Make DeFi an Easy, Seamless Reality for Millions of Non-Crypto Expert Users – Currently, 72% of the world’s population has or will soon have access to instant payments, according to Worldpay 2022 from FIS Global Payments Report. Many marketplaces are also replacing or renovating their established real-time services for instant payments. What does it take to bring these users into the web3-first, DeFi world? How simple must it be, and how quickly can we get there?
In this session, Zenobia GodschalkSVP of Communications, Swirlds Labs, and Mina Khatak, Director, Cryptocurrencies and Emerging Enterprises at Worldpay from FIS, will tackle these questions and more from the perspective of one of the world’s largest payments companies. Sponsored by Hedera.
Keep it legal – The legal issues related to cryptocurrencies and web3 are complex. Tech companies may need to consider balancing the ethos of the blockchain industry with protecting their revenue models and reducing regulatory risk. How are they financing – with equity or tokens or both? How can they protect their IP in an open source world? What contracts do they need with customers and service partners? And what are the best ways to operate amid regulatory uncertainty and the expected wave of enforcement action?
Lawyer Amy CaiazzaHead of Partnerships and Practices, Fintech and Financial Services at Wilson Sonsini; Jonathan ChanCompany Advisor, Wilson Sonsini; Neel Maitra, Partner, Fintech & Financial Services, Wilson Sonsini; and Scott McKinney, Partner, Technology Deals, Wilson Sonsini, will address these and other questions, including audience questions.

Creating a True, User-Driven Metaverse – Metaverse provides a virtual space that connects people, the world and the community. A place where users can exchange currencies and goods between them, not the company behind the platform. As the internet evolves, it’s our responsibility to create platforms that embrace diversity and inclusion, data ownership, security, and sustainability. As leaders in this space, how do we create an environment that allows users and creators to unleash their imaginations and earn unlimited potential?
