Globally, credit markets are growing at an explosive rate across all segments – from consumer, to corporate, to trade leverage and derivatives. Likewise, credit is one of the fastest growing sectors within the maturing digital asset ecosystem. Across private lenders, public lending marketplaces, and decentralized finance, or DeFi, loan volume is growing at double digit percentages quarter over quarter and driving demand for BTC and USD equivalents. In Q3, crypto lending saw its best quarter to date across the board. Participation in the lending ecosystem includes consumers leveraging their crypto as collateral for cash borrowing, including emerging mortgage providers, crypto-native challenger banks offering high interest savings accounts, and institutional trading desks looking for increased trade leverage.

Meltem Demirors, Chief Strategy Officer of CoinShares, said, “We are excited to assemble this group of experts to bring more attention to the crypto credit space– beginning with the world of trading, margin and rates, types of collateral and new blockchain-based primitives, and closing with how these innovations enable new types of credit products and promote the expansion of digital assets. It is imperative for the industry to come together and highlight the development of the crypto credit market as it is becoming a larger part of the digital asset ecosystem.”

Speakers and panelists participating in CoinShares Crypto Credit Summit include Daniel Masters, Chairman of CoinShares, Jean-Marie Mognetti, CEO of CoinShares, Jeanine Hightower-Sellitto, CEO of Atomyze, Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, Ambre Soubarian, CEO of Kaiko, Zac Prince, CEO of BlockFi, Mona el Isa, CEO of Avantgarde Finance, and many others who can be found here.
