The crypto industry seemed to age several decades during the last bull run, maturing in some places while advancing in ambitious new pursuits including DeFi, NFTs and web3. As scams continue to proliferate and hacker exploits occur weekly, the space has led to an onslaught of retail investors and a feverish enthusiasm among young techies eager to bet their careers on blockchain.

Live on stage: Technology Flow Chain Reaction
Join us for a live podcast recording of Chain Reaction as Technology Flow’s crypto team dives into lively discussions on the latest blockchain news, drama and trends.
Funding the Web3 Dream
With Michelle Bielhe (Sequoia), Tom Schmidt (Dragonfly).
Billions in capital have been raised by crypto local funds and Web3 VCs during an unprecedented bull run, but with crypto markets turning bearish, how do investors keep their Web3 dream alive? We talk to some of the most influential investors in the crypto space about which potential bets are too early, too late and the timing is right.
Bringing crypto to the masses
With Amy Wu (FTX).
Former Lightspeed partner Amy Wu made waves this year when she left the VC firm to lead startup investments from a new $2 billion fund at Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto powerhouse FTX. Since then, Coinbase has become a key presence in the challenger crypto M&A world as it seeks to provide a lifeline to blockchain finance businesses devastated by the sudden downturn, while supporting young, ambitious efforts in the consumer web3 space. Hear from Wu how her firm is guiding the crypto industry out of uncertainty while betting on its next class of winners.
Building for normies
With Alex Adelman (Lolly), Devin Lewton (Mad Realities) and Brandon Millman (Phantom)
The most hyped decentralized apps are typically designed for crypto speculators or decentralized finance acolytes, but a new breed of products are being created with the general internet user in mind. Join us as we chat with the founders of the Web3’s most exciting consumer apps and pick their brains on the opportunities for a mainstream audience and the challenges of building consumer crypto businesses in a bear market.
Building a blockchain behemoth
With Changpeng Zhao (Binance).
Binance is the world’s largest crypto exchange, and its founder and CEO, Chinese Canadian billionaire Changpeng Zhao, is so famous that he is often referred to only by his initials – “CZ.” Binance’s scale has drawn scrutiny from regulators around the world, yet the exchange has managed to maintain cult-like popularity among its customers. Zhao gives us a rare week behind the scenes at Binance, sharing his insights into what it takes to run the company in a volatile market and his biggest hopes, fears and predictions for its future.
Technology Flow Crypto Pitch-Off
The industry’s brightest entrepreneurs will take the stage in front of a live audience and panel of industry experts, pitching revolutionary technologies.
Is Crypto Regulation Ready?
More speakers to be announced, including Catherine Dowling (Bitwise Asset Management).
As crypto markets continue to gain mainstream adoption, regulators around the world are watching the young industry with a laser eye. But which crypto companies, protocols and projects will abide by the current regulatory framework? And how will the crypto industry react when government agencies start issuing new guidelines? We talk to some of the brightest minds in the space about what regulation means for the industry in 2022.
A non-fungible empire
With Devin Finzer (OpenC)
Few in the crypto space saw the explosive adoption of NFTs happening this quickly, but NFT marketplace startup OpenSea, founded back in 2017, is waiting in the wings. Fast forward to today and there are tens of billions of dollars in NFT transaction volume with OpenSea handling the lion’s share of those sales. CEO Devin Finzer has so far fended off marketplace competitors from well-funded public behemoths and upstart threats, but can the $13.3 billion startup weather its lead through a bear market?
Fundraising at Crypto Winter
With Flori Marquez (BlackFi), Nikhil Viswanathan (Alchemy), and John Wu (Ava Labs)
The days of shiny deal terms for pre-product crypto startups may be a thing of the past as the industry faces uncertainty over the next few years. We talk to several experienced crypto entrepreneurs about how young entrepreneurs can keep steady funding during bear markets and what their investors want to see.
Entering the Metaverse
With Nicole Muniz (Yuga Labs).
There’s never been anything like the rise of a bored ape yacht club. Precious monkey JPEGs have inspired endless faith among crypto outsiders, while NFT collection owners have shown extraordinary devotion outside of religious groups. Yuga, the startup behind the collection, is excited to turn this cultural anomaly into an empire. Yuga CEO Nicole Muniz, after raising a seed round this year at a $4 billion valuation, has focused her efforts on building Otherside, an NFT-centric metaverse intended to challenge the efforts of Meta, Roblox and others.
