Bas Nabulsi moderated a panel entitled Crypto as an Asset Class in Your Investment Portfolio. Cryptocurrency, recently the wild west of financial instruments and capital raising, is rapidly becoming a viable, alternative asset class in its own right. We are witnessing the introduction of professionalism, financial discipline and both self- and government regulation. We discussed the basics of cryptocurrency; its value and importance as a financing tool, a medium of exchange and a store of value; and its emergence as an appropriate asset to be included in a well-diversified portfolio. Additional panelists included Marc Baskin, Founder/CEO, Cryptokist, and Michael Kazley, Co-founder, Crescent Crypto.
