The aim of the Summit is to align technology initiatives between the governments and businesses in Bermuda and Canada. The Summit will showcase leading Canadian blockchain firms that are interested in participating in the growing technology sector in Bermuda. Throughout the week, visiting Canadian technology companies will engage with local businesses that are interested in or advisors to blockchain technology projects and asses how the Digital Asset Business Act and Bermuda’s Initial Coin Offering regime can help develop and facilitate these opportunities in Bermuda.
Members of Appleby’s Technology & Innovation team in Bermuda will be attending the keynote event on Tuesday, followed by the Canadian Government’s Cocktail Reception later that evening. Partner Steven Rees Davies will be speaking on the ‘Digital Assets – Regulation & Governance’ panel.
