Staci Warden, CEO of the Algorand Foundation, said, “We are pleased to be a strategic partner of the CfC St. Moritz on this preeminent event. This conference sets itself apart by the quality of speakers and attendees, its small size, and the substance of the conversations. Investors appreciate the ‘no sales’ environment, and all attendees come away feeling like they have learned a lot and made important connections. Interest in Initiatives like the CfC St. Moritz demonstrates the growing impact the digital asset industry is having on the world of traditional finance.”

The Algorand blockchain brings security and scale with a low carbon footprint, and the collaboration with the Algorand Foundation marks a new era for the conference, one that will highlight the potential for the digital asset ecosystem to tackle problems of global scale and for our event to have a global influence across a range of industries.”

In addition to Staci Warden, CEO of the Algorand Foundation, other speakers for the CfC St. Moritz 2023 will include Eswar Prasad, Meltem Demirors, Michael Sonnenshein, Ambre Soubiran, Anthony Scaramucci and many more.

By partnering with the CfC St. Moritz, the Algorand Foundation will support various agenda items at the event, from the bespoke social activations taking place, to a panel discussion delving into the biggest conversation points impacting the traditional and newly emerging financial sectors.
