This year's World Economic Forum summit focused on a lot of issues related to cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Unlike previous years, key economists and names attending the summit have begun to make strides, particularly on blockchain-based solutions and central bank-backed digital currency.
In addition to ConsenSys and Ethereum co-founder Joe Lubin, Seba Bank CEO Joanne Po and Lennix Lai, one of OKEx's senior executives, also shared their views on the issue. Lai testified and added that Davos made this year was much more about cryptocurrencies:
“This year Davos has a lot more cryptocurrency-related events than I expected, and this is both interesting and exciting for us. I attended a panel event held by Russia, where I saw both the Russian and Kazakh governments take a warm look at asset-backed cryptocurrencies and mining. In addition, governments have announced that they will work to improve the decentralized ecosystem.
As a leading cryptocurrency exchange, we would also like to support governments ' initiative to create a more secure environment for cryptocurrency users.”
