About Crypto Connection 2019

With the third coming of Bitcoin, will investors jump in? Currently there are several hundred crypto exchanges, more than 700 crypto funds and over $10 billion of crypto assets under management, all poised to take advantage of the recent rebound in crypto prices. Crypto funds constituted some 20% of all hedge fund launched in 2018, while the number of identity verified crypto users doubled in 2018. Despite the bumpy ride crypto assets have had, family offices, hedge funds, pensions funds and endowments are all in the market. Big names like Fidelity, Nomura and CME have also thrown their hats into the institutional crypto ring. Can traditional asset managers be far behind? Join TABB Group at Crypto Connection 2019 this September to meet key market participants and hear from TABB’s often-quoted analysts, as we discuss the most pressing issues around crypto asset market structure, regulation, instrument types, data sets and institutional-grade solutions across the full crypto trade life cycle - as well as dive into the blockchain technology underpinning this new asset class. No hype. No fluff. Just what the crypto-savvy financial institution needs to know. Brought to you by, TABB Group, the company that knows the institutional marketplace like no other.
