With a new focus on security tokens and financial regulation, this is the first time Keynote has delivered one of its powerhouse events in the New York. The industry leading event attracted attendees from Washington, DC to Wall Street to engage in highly-charged political, regulatory and social debates over the current and future impacts of the industry on traditional finance and
investment models.

Held at Manhattan’s Metropolitan West, an exciting two day agenda included candid presentations from Slava Rubin, founder at IndieGoGo, Halsey Minor, founder at Salesforce, Diego Gutierrez, founder at RSK Labs, among many more.
