|Many are familiar with the all too often chanted slur from cryptocurrency enthusiasts that Bitcoin is “Gold 2.0”, but we feel this is inaccurate.|
The truth is Bitcoin and Gold both share a great deal in common, and it might be wise to instead consider these two assets as viable companions in a portfolio that remains hedged against wider economic uncertainty and risk.
The goal of this conference is to enable investors to make sound decisions to both protect and grow their wealth. One investment thesis behind many precious metals enthusiasts making a move to digital assets is that by finding a balance between these they can expect stability and protection while further gaining exposure to the growth opportunity of digital assets such as Bitcoin.
The Alternative Investments day has an agenda structured by our partner HiveEx with a dedicated focus to explain the fundamentals of digital assets, the different verticals of value they separately address and, most importantly, how to navigate the noise within the ecosystem to distill a sensible sense of direction and confidence that leaves attendees able to make an informed decision on whether their investment portfolio is due for a re-balance.

Money is broken in many parts of the world and asset price bubbles, booms and busts drive inevitable cycles as a product.
