Quintenz gave us a peek into how regulatory bodies envision privacy developments in cryptocurrency. One of our keynote speakers, Jameson Lopp, showcased the possibility of maintaining an off-the-grid approach to life while still maintaining an active interaction with the real world.
An integral topic from the discussion revolved around the important role academia plays in creating and developing a secure ecosystem using cryptography. There was consensus on why it’s imperative that schools and universities take an active role in introducing and teaching students about privacy techniques to build better systems.
Another notable takeaway emerged from various prominent VC firms like Boost VC, Castle Island, and Slow Ventures who expressed the sentiment of investors and their focus on privacy-centric solutions and their market availability.
