Crypto finance firm Swipe launches Visa DeFi lending card

03-06   

Borrowers in the U.S. can now get funds with a DeFi-powered Visa card by Swipe.

As the world is battling to recover from the damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic, a major cryptocurrency event in Switzerland prepares to take return to a physical format.

Crypto Finance Conference (CfC) St. Moritz, an international crypto event held in St. Moritz, will take place from Jan. 20–22, 2021, and feature speakers from key industry firms and institutions like Winklevoss Capital, Swiss National Bank, the European Parliament, Ledger and others. Cointelegraph will serve as the main media partner for the CfC St. Moritz 2021.

The upcoming conference is the fourth annual iteration of CfC St. Moritz and will be different from previous events — the conference will prioritize the health and safety of attendees with a comprehensive COVID-19 strategy.

Available on the CfC St. Moritz website, the strategy outlines a wide set of preventive measures for pre-event and on-site safety like mandatory face masks, strict cleaning and disinfecting policies, and social distancing rules. The strategy also limits the event capacity to 250 people and requires the guests to use the SwissCovid app for contact and symptom tracing.

According to CfC St. Moritz organizers, the measures come in line with requirements from the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health. CEO of CfC St. Moritz Nicolo Stoehr said that “physical encounters and personal exchanges are more necessary than ever and will be possible under strict hygiene rules.”

The CfC St. Moritz 2021 website states that the conference preparations “are in full swing.”

“The challenges caused by COVID-19 require additional efforts, which we as the organizer are happy to take on. We believe that the unique experience at CfC St. Moritz is not possible without physical interaction and personal exchange — and are even the more sought after, particularly if appropriate measures are in place,” it reads.

Confirmed speakers at CfC St. Moritz 2021 include major industry figures like CoinShares CSO Meltem Demirors and Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano. The event will also feature European Parliament Member Eva Kaili and Thomas Moser, an alternate member of the governing board at Swiss National Bank. Other speakers include Ledger CEO Pascal Gauthier, Winklevoss Capital’s Jane Lippencott, and XBTO’s Philippe Bekhazi.

The application-only conference will host a number of keynote speeches and panel discussions on important industry topics like cryptocurrency regulation, central bank digital currencies and stablecoins, as well as crypto investment strategies. The event will also be available online.

Crypto events going virtual amid the 2020 pandemic
The CfC St. Moritz 2021 will purportedly be among the first global crypto events featuring physical encounters after most events in 2020 went online or were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Shortly after the World Health Association officially labeled the coronavirus outbreak as a pandemic on March 12, a number of major crypto conferences like Consensus announced their plans to move conferences from physical sites to online. BlockShow, a global blockchain event powered by Cointelegraph, partnered with San Francisco Blockchain Week to host the first-ever online trade show called Unitize in July 2020.
