Panel: Cryptocurrency in crisis – bankruptcy and industry updates

The second half of 2022 will be remembered for its “crypto winter”, with several high-profile cryptocurrency firms going bankrupt, including FTX, Celsius, and Voyager. The industry’s woes seem to have continued into 2023, with layoffs and bankruptcies as a result of risky activity and a lack of regulatory oversight. What have been some of the lessons learned, and what do industry experts expect to see in the second half of 2023? In this session, our panel will discuss the current situation and what it means for the sector.

  • Crypto Chapter 11 proceedings – what are some of the key issues that have arisen, such as valuation disputes, and is continued distress going to lead to more bankruptcies in the space?  
  • Innovation vs regulation in the crypto sector – where does the balance lie?
  • What are the implications for investors, and what legal and contractual protections can be put into place for customers?
  • What does the crypto platform look like going forward, and will the challenges persist?
