Emily in Austin — Consensus 2023

Emily attended Consensus 2023 in Austin, Texas April 26-28 and moderated tables for 2 topics: blockchain-based data-sharing to help coordinate climate action and the global policy framework.

Key takeaways: 1) Crypto is challenging the core premise of the current international monetary system – monetary sovereignty. Hence, the challenging political, legal, and regulatory issues. 2) Crypto/blockchain companies need to develop robust business continuity plans (ISO 22031 Security and resilience – Business continuity management systems Requirements) not only as sound business practice (following the SVB and Signature bank crises) but required by the new MICA legislation.
