Agreement 2017: The Ups and Downs of Digital Moneys
Against the backdrop of a climbing cryptocurrency market on Tuesday, two panels at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2017 conference focused on both the promise and pitfalls of working with (or investing in) digital currencies and blockchain assets.
Michael Moro, CEO of New York-based Genesis Global Trading, described the frustration his firm has experienced in trying to add a new token to trade.
“We asked for permission to trade in September, and here I am still nine months later, still waiting,” he said.
During Tuesday’s second digital currency-focused panel, five cryptocurrency blockchain reps gathered to discuss the industry – and the current euphoria in the space.
