KBW 2023 to feature AI and zero-knowledge technology topics

Set to see crypto and blockchain believers meet, connect and learn, KBW2023 will feature some of the biggest personalities and industry leaders across the crypto space. Despite the 2022 crypto winter, the KBW conference attracted more than 8,700 attendees, with 256 journalists and 130 speakers gracing the occasion.

Among the speakers were Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin, Binance founder & CEO Changpeng Zhao, and Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal. While the organisers are yet to finalise on this year’s list, it is expected to pack some of the biggest names in the industry – with speakers from across DeFi, NFT, and GameFi joined by those across layer 1 and layer 2 projects.

Renowned journalists, top venture funds and other market participants will also attend, KBW said in a press release shared with CoinJournal.

Part of the 2023 content schedule will include topics on new trends such as artificial intelligence, and zero-knowledge technology. AI is a big narrative today, with some of the biggest crypto projects in 2023 being AI-powered ones.

Also key to the industry is the topic of blockchain regulation, and Factblock and partners say this will feature.
