What is the role of bitcoin, stable coins, and other tools in ensuring a sustainable and equitable finance system?

At the inception of cryptocurrencies stood the ideal of increasing access to finance through its decentralized system independent from banks.

Nowadays, many people have invested in such assets, and they’ve also found their way into everyday transactions. But have they delivered on leveling the playing field?

This hybrid event will be drawing from experiences of the city of Lugano, an Italian-speaking city in the south of Switzerland, that is embracing bitcoin for its everyday economic activities, while complementing it with the buzzing crypto ecosystem in the San Francisco Bay Area.


This is a hybrid event organized in collaboration with Plan B Lugano. For in-person attendance in San Francisco, please register here. If you want to participate in Switzerland, please register for the Plan B Forum conference here.

More details and speakers will be announced soon.
