Commissioner Dan M. Berkovitz

United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission

"A system without intermediaries is a Hobbesian marketplace with each person looking out for themselves. Caveat emptor—“let the buyer beware.”Not only do I think that unlicensed DeFi markets for derivative instruments are a bad idea, I also do not see how they are legal under the Commodity Exchange Act."

                                  - FIA Asset Management Derivatives Forum, June 2021

Commissioner Berkovitz is a leading voice on the regulatory challenges - and opportunities - facing the crypto and DeFi industry, and a leading legal expert on futures and derivative markets. He will join DACOM for a fireside Q&A.

She will join DACOM for a firside chat.

Sam Bankman-Fried

Founder and CEO, FTX and Alameda Research

“I don’t think that everything is gonna move to DeFi, but I do think that there’s a world in which 10% of it does, I also don’t think it’s automatic that it’s going to happen… Decentralized systems are only going to take off if they’re really good products,"
                                                                                            - Axios, April 2021

As the founder of one of the world's largest crypto exchanges, Bankman-Fried is a renowned entrepreneur and leading expert on the potential of digital asset and DeFi products to transform financial services. He will join DACOM for a fireside Q&A.

Joe Lubin

Founder, ConsenSys
Co-founder, Ethereum

“There will be a public discussion in [the U.S.] and others and then it’ll go well. It’s just such a slam dunk how valuable this technology is. So I look forward to whether it’s me or others, to us all having the opportunity to help regulators and politicians understand why we’re on the same team.”

                                                               - Forkast News, December 2020

The New York Times described Mr. Lubin as Ethereum's "key strategist," and Consensys, the company he founded to advance Etherum's ecosystem, as "the entity that would bring Vitalik Buterin's vision into fruition." As one of Blockchain and DeFi's earliest thought leaders, he is on the forefront of the forefront of enabling it's integration into traditional finance, and beyond.
