Ripple Outlines Key Events for Swell Conference
Ripple, the company associated with the popular cryptocurrency XRP, has released its detailed agenda for the upcoming Swell conference set to take place on Nov. 8 and Nov. 9.
The annual event is much anticipated in the crypto space and brings together some of the most influential figures and entities from the industry.
This year’s conference holds special significance, as it follows Ripple’s landmark victory against the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Over two days, the Ripple Swell conference will spotlight a plethora of discussions and panel sessions. Day one kicks off with a breakfast session, followed by Ripple’s opening remarks. One notable keynote will focus on the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and its pivotal role in advancing blockchain. Attendees will also delve into the implications of custody in a tokenized economy and be privy to a fireside chat with Bitstamp’s CTO, James Greenwood.
Day two promises equally enlightening content. Topics range from exploring how Dubai is positioning itself as a global crypto leader to a fireside chat with MFS Africa’s CEO, Dare Okoudjou, about pioneering crypto payments in Africa. The event will culminate with a closing keynote fireside chat featuring Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse.
Swell’s special significance
The Swell conference has always been a pivotal event for Ripple, but this year, the backdrop is particularly noteworthy. Recently, Ripple emerged victorious in its legal tussle with the SEC.
A judge ruled that secondary sales of XRP are not to be classified as securities. This landmark decision has not only bolstered Ripple’s standing in the crypto community but also set an important precedent for the industry at large.
Given this significant legal win and the robust agenda for the Swell conference, participants and observers alike are eagerly awaiting the much-awaited event.
