The agenda also features leaders at top blockchain projects, including our presenting partners and speakers Jon Wu, President at Ava Labs, Marc Boiron, CEO at Polygon Labs, Arthur Breitman, Co-Founder at Tezos, and Shayne Higdon, Co-Founder and CEO at The HBAR Foundation. Beyond the presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to book private meetings with our blockchain partners during the event.

'After the FTX collapse, institutional sentiment towards digital assets decreased. Many allocators pulled the plug on digital assets and no longer wanted to support or participate in crypto. But since then, real infrastructure has emerged and projects are delivering solutions with real-world utility,' said Josh Frank, CEO and co-founder of The Tie. 'The real goal for The Bridge is to provide content and conversations that highlight crypto's maturation and ultimately restores traditional finance institutions' trust in it.'

Unlike any other event in crypto, The Bridge will enable the opportunity for private one-on-one meetings between blockchain professionals and investors. During these conversations, facilitated by The Tie, attendees will address and discuss the most important narratives for both institutions and leading blockchains, including infrastructure, regulation, custody, venture, and tokenization. Select presentations at The Bridge will be live-streamed.
