About the event

The cryptocurrency industry is booming and is defining the future of money. But with each boom comes a measure of chaos. New crypto regulations are being formulated on the fly, governments are developing central bank-controlled digital currencies, and consumers and large institutions are going through phases of adoption or rejection.

So will cryptocurrencies become globally adopted, and will they replace all of our notions about the use of cash today? With more than 1.7 billion people in the world being unbanked and millions of other people still not being used to the digitalization of money, an opposite movement is taking place. Hybrid banknotes that can bridge cash and crypto are being developed, with the idea of merging the two worlds and bringing the digital to the analog.

For Episode 5 of Nebeus’s fireside chat, we’re joined by an exciting panel of speakers, including Franklin Noll, a recognized authority on the history of money.

Main topics of discussion
  • Hybrid Banknotes – what are they, and how will they work?
  • Can hybrid banknotes help the unbanked world population?
  • How will CBDCs change the way we use money?
  • Will regulated digital currencies adopt hybrid banknotes?
  • Past Vs. Future, Analog Vs. Digital: what can the lessons of our past tell us about our future?
