About the Event

Crypto is everywhere, and the blockchain is changing the world.

How would the global economy look if there was a shift towards decentralized banking? How have cryptocurrencies impacted regulatory practices, taxation, and international reporting? Why are some countries, like El Salvador, adopting crypto as legal tender while others, like China, ban its use? How are environmental and sustainability challenges impacting the future of crypto?

Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia for a discussion about these questions and more on cryptocurrency and its impact on the global economy.
