CoinShares Conversations explore the dynamic forces shaping our world - from economic shifts to consumer preference changes, from technology innovations to new regulations, from cultural trends to scientific discoveries.
At CoinShares, our mission is to expand access to the digital asset ecosystem while serving as trusted partners to our clients. While we spend our day to day thinking about digital assets, especially bitcoin, and the evolution of capital markets and finance, we recognize that the world around us is also evolving.
We launched CoinShares Conversations as a forum to convene leaders from other industries and fields to share their perspectives on the key trends shaping our world and to share their insights and expertise. We believe that nothing around us is static, and everything is increasingly interconnected, which is why these conversations are important to shaping our view of the world and our role in it.
We hope you enjoy these conversations as much as we do!
