Fintech Disruption Summit 2020 Successfully Completed

On September 3rd we completed the second iteration of Fintech Disruption Summit. You can read about the event and the program here.
The focus of this year's event was real estate tokenization, decentralized finance and tokenization of VC funds. While several speakers had experience with real estate tokenization, the tokenization of investment (and VC) funds is still an immature field.
More than 200 signed up for the conference indicating that tokenization is a hot and interesting topic for many. We are now ready with the videos from the event, so you can review the best moments from the conference.
All the videos can be accessed here.
We are starting to make plans for the next Fintech Disruption Summit, expected in February 2021 – most likely also virtual, in consideration of COVID-19. If you are interested in speaking or sponsoring – please reach out to us.

Individual links for the videos are included below. If you are interested in tokenization and want to see the highlights, you should watch videos #2, #9, #10 and panel 1.
