09:35 | Crypto and privacy: friends or foes?
10:20 | Q&A


Key takeaways

The government has announced series of measures to make the UK a global hub for crypto asset technology, in an attempt to attract the soaring investment in the crypto and blockchain sector, which globally exceeded $30bn in 2021. While crypto enthusiasts argue that decentralized tools like blockchains will improve privacy by putting individuals in control of their data, others say that the transparent nature of public distributed ledgers, which make transactions visible to all participants can shatter the illusion of privacy entirely.

Join this session to learn the interplay between crypto and privacy, and to discuss the main privacy, security and ethical considerations that professionals need to be aware of as Web 3 is built.
