International Tech summit opens today
Appleby, the international law firm, believes that the use of technologies in addressing climate change is critical and the discussions this week at the 3rd annual International Tech Summit ‘22 are important to that cause.
Appleby is a sponsor of this week’s summit, an event spearheaded by Penrose Partners, a Canadian and Bermudian blockchain advisory firm.
Jerome Wilson, Appleby partner and head of the firm’s technology and innovation practice in Bermuda, said: “We are pleased to once again support the Tech Summit, an event platform showcasing Bermuda’s leading role as a global hub for blockchain and fintech.
“While it is increasingly important to keep pace in this ever-evolving sector, Bermuda’s ability to do so is bolstered by its sound and innovative legislative and regulatory framework for digital asset issuances.
“Our team is looking forward to the discussions tabled for this year’s agenda, which will also delve into broader, critical issues, including the use of innovative technologies to combat climate change and building a more sustainable future.”
The Tech Summit, which is presented by Penrose Partners, will bring together leaders, regulators and innovators both virtually and in person to explore the latest developments in digital assets and blockchain technology.
The event will be hosted in partnership with the Government of Bermuda and the Consulate-General of Canada in New York, and is co-organised by Blockchain Triangle and Bermuda Asset Management.
Headline sponsors include Algorand, a world-leading blockchain protocol working with national governments, and 3iQ Corp, a Canadian investment manager that launched the world’s first publicly traded Bitcoin investment fund.
Key topics for discussion during the weeklong series of events include digital adoption, decentralised finance, custody and insurance, privacy and identity, cryptocurrency, and sustainability.
Members of Appleby’s technology and innovation team will attend events throughout the week and share their experience with emerging technologies.
Appleby’s multidisciplinary global practice, which is top-ranked by Chambers Global, advises clients across a broad range of technologies including: blockchain; virtual currencies, token sales and initial coin offerings; financial technologies; digital technology and e-commerce; intellectual property; and IT and communications, to name a few.
