NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- After a record-breaking event in New York City this past September, Blockworks' Digital Asset Summit (DAS) is heading to London for the second installation of this semi-annual event. DAS: London will be held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel October 17-18, 2022. Similarly to the NYC-based event, a record number of investors are expected to attend, as governments and institutions alike recognize the impact and maturation of digital assets.

"The pipeline for institutions entering crypto is stronger than ever," says Blockworks Co-Founder Michael Ippolito. "Once banks and asset managers have committed to an asset class, they don't get scared by market dips. In fact, more often they view them as entry points and that is exactly what we're seeing today."

DAS: London will bring together financial institutions, family offices, financial advisers, investment banks, crypto protocols, exchanges, RIAs, hedge funds, prime brokers, venture capitalists and other industry professionals to discuss the evolution of the digital asset class and its macro investment status.

More than 700 institutions and 300 funds representing $800 billion in assets under management will be in attendance to hear from over 100 speakers, including:

  • Morgan Stanley, Head of Digital Asset Markets
  • Aave, Founder & CEO
  • Jane Street, Crypto Institutional Sales & Trading
  • Binance, Head of VIP & Institutional
  • Valkyrie, Co-Founder & CEO
  • Coinbase, Head of Institutional Sales EMEA
  • S&P Global Ratings, Chief DeFi Officer
  • London Stock Exchange Group, Director of Emerging Technology

The past two years of sold-out attendance and the industry's rapid growth prompted Blockworks to expand the topics covered during the two-day conference, which include:

  • Crypto's Institutional Lending Market
  • Institutional Access to DeFi
  • Bailouts: Crypto's Financial Crisis
  • Burning Bridges: Addressing Cross-Chain Hacks and DeFi Security
  • Regulatory Clouds on the Horizon
  • Building the Infrastructure for Institutional Crypto Adoption

Through fireside chats, panels and networking opportunities—including an exclusive dinner for VIP guests and speakers, and an after-party open to all attendees—guests will have access to unparalleled insights shared by leaders from both traditional finance and the crypto ecosystem.
