CEX.IO to Host Workshop at the Money Reimagined Summit, Kick-Off to the Consensus 2022 Festival

NAPERVILLE, Ill., May 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CEX.IO, a global ecosystem of products and services that connects people and businesses to the cryptocurrency economy and decentralized finance, will host a workshop on Thursday, June 9 at the Consensus 2022 festival’s Money Reimagined Summit. The 20-minute session is entitled, “Putting Your Digital Assets to Work with Staking: a Primer for Retail and Institutional.” 

Led by CEX.IO executives Will Evans, Managing Director, the Americas, and Rich Evans, Managing Director for CEX.IO’s institutional offering, Prime Liquidity, the session will debunk the myths about the incompatibility between decentralized finance (DeFi) and traditional finance (TradFi), arguing that proof of stake is the future of TradFi. 

“There is a growing misconception that DeFi will replace traditional finance in the coming years, when in fact it’s becoming more and more clear that crypto will exist next to orthodox finance,” shared Evans. “Crypto staking, the process of supporting a blockchain network’s operation, is a perfect example of how DeFi can exist within the limits of traditional finance, and has enormous potential for investors.” 

Participants will walk away from the session with a firm understanding of:

  • The opportunities for retail and institutional investors
  • How to put their digital assets to work with staking
