Blockchain companies, entrepreneurs, startups, and expert analysts will convene for the upcoming AI/Disruption 2.0 Speaker webinar series organized by McKinsey & Company on January 7, 2021.
David Drake, Founder and Chairman of LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group, spoke about DeFi (decentralized finance) at the previous McKinsey webinar event last September 23, 2020. He said, "There has been ongoing activity concerning digital assets and cryptocurrencies as we are facing this pandemic. I think more people are looking into these investments as numerous lockdowns are being imposed globally. This may be an indication that companies and investments may turn things around during this COVID-19 pandemic."
