Wall Street Blockchain Alliance

is pleased to present:

"GameStop, DeFi and the Future of Financial Markets”

Understanding Current Market Turmoil and Future Challenges


On Wednesday, February 24th 2021, the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance (WSBA) invites you to a special event featuring a panel of financial markets and decentralized finance experts. 

The recent turmoil in global markets has caused wild volatility in equities and crypto prices, as well as frustration for retail and institutional traders and renewed calls for more government investigation and oversight. While some see markets being controlled for the benefit of entrenched players, others see these events as the catalyst for a broader democratization of markets, powered by cryptoassets and decentralization.

To address these developments and more, the WSBA is proud to bring together several industry experts to analyze these events, discuss possible causes and offer perspectives on what it all means for global financial markets in the future.

We hope you can join us for an informative and lively event.
