FOX Member Summit: Blockchain and Digital Assets - January 27, 2022

Overview

Thursday, January 27, 2022 - 10:00am to 6:00pm

One of the hallmarks of the FOX value proposition over the last 30 years has been helping members “see around corners” and ensure preparation for what the future may bring. In that spirit, FOX is bringing members an inaugural 1-day event to gather and share insights around blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

While the last 12 months has seen unprecedented fiscal stimulus and an extraordinary increase in the supply of fiat currency globally, it has also provided a platform for cryptocurrencies to demonstrate their value as an alternative asset class, most notably Bitcoin. Join your FOX peers for this premiere event to discuss this asset class and the exciting possibilities and potential downfalls that come with it.
