Since its inception nearly a decade ago, the Money20/20 conference has cemented its position as being one of the leading global stages where industry leaders from the world of payments, banking, fintech, and financial services have come together to discuss new and disruptive ways to move, manage, spend and borrow money.
In this regard, as the crypto market has continued to grow and evolve over the years, an increasing number of mainstream partnerships have continued to redefine this space. As part of this session, Joseph Bruzessi (Managing Director for BitGo America), Elizabeth Matthew (Executive Director for Consensys) and I will take a look at MetaMask’s recent partnership with BitGo and how it stands to serve as a key milestone allowing organizations to leverage leading custody solutions in order to seamlessly discover and interact with the DeFi market.
Additionally, the panel will also explore in detail the core concept underlying ‘tokenization’ and how it has continued to garner an increasing amount of momentum across the global digital landscape, becoming a pathway in terms of bridging the gap that currently exists between currencies, countries, and traditional financial systems.
Lastly, the session will also explore the idea of how partnerships amongst mainstream entities such as BitGo and Metamask can help foster better opportunities for crypto enthusiasts all over the planet, thus, in turn, allowing for the creation of a more inclusive financial ecosystem.
