CoinMarketCap’s virtual conference – The Capital: Time to Ship, is set to bring together the who’s who of the global cryptocurrency community. Happening this May 26 to 27, 2022, the conference is expected to bring forth discussions on launching products and projects to ensure the “crypto revolution can continue providing vital solutions” needed by the society, CoinMarketCap said in a statement. 

BitPinas is a media partner for CoinMarketCap’s The Capital Conference. BitPinas will be covering panel discussions with a particular focus on topics that are of relevance to the Filipino crypto community.

Statement from CZ

The Capital: Time to Ship is a two-day online conference. Sessions and panel discussions are going to happen simultaneously. There are tracks for DeFi, Metaverse. Play-to-earn. NFTs, and many layer-1 ecosystems that are livestreamed to the audience worldwide. 

According to Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao, the founder of Binance, one of the reasons he is excited to speak at CoinMarketCap’s first-ever online conference is because of its theme – “Time to Ship”

“This unique metaverse-based event will focus on crypto products that are delivering real solutions right now, not at some nebulous time in the future, which is incredibly important to highlight in our support of the cryptocurrency revolution.”

Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao

  • The Sandbox
  • NEAR Protocol
  • Polygon
  • Harmony
  • Boba Network
  • Biconomy
  • Axie Infinity
