FTX, Uniswap and Visa talk blockchain economy and opportunity at Disrupt



FTX US President Brett Harrison and Mary-Catherine Lader will join us for a panel discussion on structuring, regulation and markets at TechCrunch Disrupt on October 18-20. Cuy Sheffield, the VP and global head of crypto at Visa and Cuy Sheffield will discuss the regulatory issues looming over all players in the web3 space, including trading venues (FTX) and traditional companies dipping a toe in the waters (Visa). What are they currently facing, and on what points do they agree — or disagree?


FTX US社長のBrett HarrisonとMary-Catherine Laderが、10月18〜20日にTechCrunchの構造化、規制、市場に関するパネルディスカッションに参加します。VisaとCuy SheffieldのCryptoのVPおよびグローバルヘッドであるCuy Sheffieldは、Web3スペースのすべてのプレーヤー(FTX)や水のつま先(Visa)を浸した従来の企業など、Web3スペースのすべてのプレーヤーに迫っている規制上の問題について議論します。彼らは現在何に直面していますか、そして彼らはどのような点で同意しますか?


Whether you’re bullish or bearish, web3-native or web3-naive, you have to admit nothing remains the same for long in the growing blockchain, crypto, NFT and web3 universe.


And the entirety of the rapidly evolving space is under increasing scrutiny — both public and regulatory.


This constant change, combined with plenty of controversy, are just two reasons why we’re thrilled that Brett Harrison, president of FTX US; Mary-Catherine Lader, the COO at Uniswap Labs; and Cuy Sheffield, the VP and global head of crypto at Visa will join us for a panel discussion at TechCrunch Disrupt on October 18–20 in San Francisco.

この絶え間ない変化は、多くの論争と相まって、FTX USの社長であるBrett Harrisonが興奮している2つの理由にすぎません。Mary-Catherine Lader、Uniswap LabsのCOO。また、VisaのCryptoのグローバルヘッドであるCuy Sheffieldは、サンフランシスコで10月18〜20日にTechCrunch Disruptでのパネルディスカッションに参加します。

During a conversation called “Structure, Regulation and Markets: The Road Ahead for Crypto Startups,” we’ll dig into how these leaders navigate constant product evolution, look at new opportunities the blockchain economy offers and get their take on the future of their respective markets.


We’re curious about the big, key regulatory issues looming over all players in the web3 space — trading venues (FTX), traditional companies dipping a toe in the waters (Visa) and crypto-native companies (Uniswap).


What are they currently facing, and on what points do they agree — or disagree?


No matter their perspectives, it should make for quite a lively discussion.
