Day 1 – May 31st
Choosing a custody model: Direct custody vs. sub-custody
Speaker: Stephen Richardson (Vice President, Head of Product Strategy & Business Solutions at Fireblocks)
Details: Keynote at 9:25 AM CET
Throughout 2020 and ‘21, as more financial institutions have entered the digital asset space, questions around how to custody institutional crypto have grown in relevance.
Some financial institutions are outsourcing their crypto to be held by sub-custodians, while others are employing direct custody technologies to hold their own assets. In this session, Fireblocks VP of Product Strategy Stephen Richardson will walk you through everything you need to know about how the different types of crypto custody stack up, so you can make an informed decision for your organization.
