Is it time to move beyond the hype and get real about crypto? As 2017's crypto bull market captured the world's attention and sparked an investment gold rush, behind the scenes many were already thinking about how the underlying blockchain technology could drive a new wave of innovation and utility, and Coinbase was one of the early pioneers. Hear from two of the industry power players that the company has tapped to chart a future course focused on real applications. Asiff Hirji, President & COO at Coinbase, and Katie Haun, Coinbase board member and co-lead of the crypto fund at Andreessen Horowitz, will share their vision for crypto's next phase, from powering decentralized applications and Internet 3.0 to providing infrastructure for emerging economies.
