Crypto Biz: Crypto was in full swing at Collision Conference, June 17-23

For all the gloom and doom in the cryptocurrency market these days, our industry continues to make inroads into mainstream tech. This week, I had the pleasure of attending the sold-out Collision Conference in Toronto, and crypto was featured prominently. During the event, I got to moderate three panels, including two that were crypto-focused. The fact that the biggest tech conference in North America is letting me talk cryptocurrency after a six-month bloodbath proves there’s more to the industry than just price. And, I’m not saying the price isn’t important — but context is everything.

My Collision panel on decentralized social media included Stani Kulechov, founder and CEO of Aave and Lens Protocol.

This week’s Crypto Biz gives you a taste of Collision Conference 2022 and also draws your attention to the latest funding and business news from the world of blockchain.
