Connect with Hedera, Wilson Sonsini and MetaJuice at TC Sessions: Crypto

TechCrunch has a long history of partnering with great companies that are not only subject matter experts, but are also committed to supporting early-stage startups. While this is our first official conference dedicated to space, TC Sessions: Crypto — November 17 in Miami — is no exception to the rule of our great partners.

Whether it’s blockchain, crypto, DeFi, NFT, or web3 based, building a startup in the cryptoverse is no easy task, not exactly breaking news, we know. One of the things our partners do best is provide their expertise and educational resources. They feature sessions on a variety of topics that help founders gain the confidence and knowledge they need to move their startup forward.

Keep in mind that even when our partners provide valuable insights from our stages, they are always looking to engage with interesting founders and startups to explore potential partnerships and new opportunities. Let the networking begin.

Take a look at some of the speakers and topics our partners will be presenting in Miami at TC Sessions: Crypto, and be sure to explore the full agenda.

Bringing DeFi to the masses: How do we make DeFi an easy and seamless reality for millions of users who are not crypto experts? Currently, 72% of the world’s population has, or will soon have, access to instant payments, according to FIS Worldpay 2022 Global payments report. Many marketplaces are also replacing or upgrading their established real-time services to cater for instant payments. What does it take to bring these users into a web3-first DeFi world? How simple does it need to be and how fast can we get there?

In this session, Zenobia GodschalkSenior Vice President of Communications, Swirlds Labs and khattak mine, Director, Crypto and Emerging Business at FIS Worldpay, will address these questions and more from the perspective of one of the world’s largest payment firms. Sponsored by Hedera.

Keep it legal — The legal issues associated with crypto and web3 are complex. Tech companies may need to consider balancing the ethos of the blockchain industry with protecting their revenue models and reducing regulatory risk. How are you structuring the financings, with equity or tokens or both? How can they protect their intellectual property in an open source world? What contracts do they need with customers and service partners? And what are the best ways to operate amid regulatory uncertainty and an anticipated wave of enforcement actions?

lawyer Amy CaiazzaPartner and Leader of the Practice Group, Fintech and Financial Services at Wilson Sonsini; jonathan-chanCorporate Counsel, Wilson Sonsini; Neel Maitra, Partner, Fintech and Financial Services, Wilson Sonsini; Y scott mckinneyTechnology Transactions partner Wilson Sonsini will address these and other questions, including questions from the audience. Sponsored by Wilson Sonsini.

Creating a true user-driven metaverse: The metaverse provides a virtual space that connects people, worlds, and communities. A place where users can exchange currencies and goods with each other, not the company behind the platform. As the Internet evolves, we have a responsibility to build platforms that embrace diversity and inclusion, data ownership, security, and sustainability. As leaders in this space, how do we create an environment that allows users and creators to explore their imaginations and gain limitless potential?
