We’re proud to announce that earlier this week, Adam was invited as a keynote speaker at the Capital Markets Event held by Fintech-Aviv. Introduced as “one of the most outstanding figures in the industry” by Sheldon Freedman of Hassans, a leading international law firm, it was a fantastic opportunity to introduce Digitex to leading figures in the buzzing Israeli fin-tech scene. Watch Adam’s keynote below.
Israel has more than 500 fintech firms ranging from startup to unicorns. Fintech-Aviv is their representative body as the Israeli fintech association. It regularly holds events hosting senior figures from the financial sector. As Adam himself said, he is usually “the crypto guy” so it was a unique opportunity to present the Digitex model to a new audience.
Adam started off by introducing himself with reference to his own background, coming from the trading pits where commissions could be the death of profitability for a scalper like him. He went on to explain how he had developed the idea of Digitex as a zero-commissions trading venue that funds itself using a proprietary token.
While he acknowledged that many of the previous attempted use cases for blockchain were tenuous at best, he demonstrated to the audience that an exchange such as Digitex represents a valuable use case for blockchain.
This utility is self-evident from the massive liquidity that the DFE is generating, even prior to the public launch date. What’s more, as Adam points out, the DFE is launching at a time when many people will be looking for new ways to make money. As a trading platform with zero fees and no house edge, Digitex is primed to take off and change the way traders trade forever.
Thanks to the team at Fintech-Aviv for the opportunity to introduce Digitex to a new audience and for hosting Adam.
