Here was Michael Casey’s initial plan regarding the no-brainer ambitious story-telling plan of Coindesk back in 2019, up till today, this plan works great to attract enormous financial institutions, Venture capitalists, token legal professionals, and media opinion leaders to this crypto fest.
“In this vibrant, ever-changing industry, there is much to talk about. While mainstream media has focused on the sideshow of cryptocurrency markets, engineers have been developing innovative solutions to blockchain technology’s scaling, security and other challenges, paving the way for what looks like its prime-time moment. High-profile companies such as Facebook and JP Morgan, as well as sovereign states like China, are directly employing hybrid, permissioned versions of the technology, setting up a conflict with the more radical, permissionless vision of bitcoin and its offspring. ”
