Conference on Stablecoins, Libra and Central Banks

Join us on Thursday 19 September to learn about the future of money in the Digital Age and the role of Switzerland in securing it.

Stablecoins are a fast growing sector of the cryptocurrency market, worth $186 billion. The amount of stablecoins has rapidly grown throughout the past two years: 200+ projects have been announced since 2017 and 66 public and active stablecoins are currently in circulation

Debates about Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) are now gathering great attention worldwide.
