COVID-19 has transformed nearly every aspect of our world. However, as it ravaged the world it also accelerated the digital transformation of nearly everything. It’s shed light on fragile supply chains, untrustworthy information, and radically new customer needs. As companies, entrepreneurs and investors have had to adjust to these realities, the most successful, are those that embrace change. But what is the change and how big is it? This is an unknown future and it looks like we’ll have to figure it out while sprinting a marathon, because there’s an incredible amount of information that is overwhelming us all. That’s what GIC is here for, to sift through the noise, listen to and talk with the experts, have in-depth conversations with those on the inside track, so we can pre-empt and make informed investment decisions.

So, what is this new future on the horizon? Crypto has seen the fastest rate of adoption of any technology in human history. The internet back in 1997, when it had 150m users, was growing at 63% a year. Today tracks circa 150m users in crypto and it’s growing at 113% a year. That’s a ridiculous growth pace and it’s only accelerating. The last year alone has seen the rise of DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, CBDCs, stablecoins, in a way that none of us could have expected. This is an unprecedented opportunity seeing as this entire asset class is on pace to go up 100x in value by the end of the decade. The digital asset system seems to be the life raft everyone is jumping on. No doubt, there will be sell off’s, blow-ups. etc, but the point is, the game has changed and we need to know about it.

We’ll be diving into the bubbling facets of this world; how the metaverse is everywhere and nowhere; how musicians are renouncing streaming to sell their songs as NFTs; how architects are creating masterpieces in virtual worlds; how gamers are making a new kind of living; and how online structures are being built that will supercharge the next era of the Internet. The crisis has sparked a wave of innovation – it seems Plato was right: necessity is indeed the mother of invention. Many of these concepts are about offering pragmatic elegantly engineered solutions to real-world issues and we’ll be dissecting them all so that we’re all equipped with the knowledge to own a stake in these future systems.


The Global Investor Conference brings together some of the brightest minds and most influential professionals in digital assets. Here are some Conference Speakers.
