Reboot: SKALE @ Messari Mainnet | SKALE

Marcos Sanchez
Head of Communications

What a week in NYC.  It's been a hot minute, but we wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to catch up on what went on at the Messari Mainnet 2021 conference.  SKALE was there in full force, which included not one, but two presentations by CEO Jack O'Holleran, a party packed with industry insiders and a whole lot of business development and dealmaking going on.  If you didn't get a chance to go, take a moment to watch this incredible panel on blending Defi and Fintech. SKALE sat alongside heavyweights Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Blockdaemon and more for a lively discussion.

This session's speakers include:
Sarah Olsen, Head of Corporate Development at J.P. Morgan
Oli Harris, Head of North America Digital Assets at Goldman Sachs
Aya Kantorovich, Head of Institutional Coverage at FalconX
Konstantin Richter, CEO and Co-Founder at Blockdaemon
Jesus Rodriguez, CEO at IntoTheBlock
Jack O'Holleran, Co-Founder and CEO at SKALE Labs

We loved getting to spend time with partners old and new, as well as connect with the crypto ecosystem from projects to hedge funds to bankers to dapps. A special shout out to the many folks (we were at capacity) that attended the SKALE Happy hour co-sponsored with Blockdaemon and Look forward to doing more shows IRL.  If you're curious, check out the shared Google Photos album.
