And this is the tail end of the week. And I’m here with one of the men in charge of the blockchain economic forum, the managing director of LAtoken, Roman Zhdanov. So, you guys have had an all-star lineup of content at the beginning of BEF this week. It’s been two days. All of them I’m hearing is how amazing the events have been. We’ll tell someone about that. Tell us a bit about the speakers, tell some about the content, tell us about some of the things that you really want to get out there during these WEF events.

Yup. So we did, we had a great panels about the role of central banks in the future and how digital currencies can be around, will they be a centralized central bank that we will be managing global, central, global digital currency or it will be more decentralized. And there were heated discussions between Nouriel Roubini and between Sylvia of chief economist of this are some pregnancy. Those are pretty big names. Yeah. And these guys are really interested in this industry. What’s going on there. And we had president of Bulgaria, he was actually founder of blockchain cessation of Bulgaria.

We as a fundraising whose face shows and what are the trends, trends there. So, there so many coins kind of ICO’s that should be regulated. We had Antonio Scaramucci he would, his perspective on that point as well.
Matt Bird (Show Host, Traders Network Show):01:55
The good thing is we were, we are seeing some sort of regulations allowing us to tie traditional trading into, into crypto assets. Crypto, sorry, digital assets, which is must be great for you but great for all, all, all exchanges that are out there right now cause it’s becoming, even though it’s essentialized, becoming more mainstream, literally, you know, and it’s going at such a pace that I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything quite like it. But all right, we’ve got about one minute before I have to cut to a commercial break. Tell us a little bit what’s in store for the next two days. Cause I know you have a couple more events that, that there still in in your lineup. Is that great?
