KPMG Digital Asset Salon

KPMG Digital Asset Salon

Currently, the hottest ticket in fintech, Max Heinzle, CEO of 21X, was once again lightening up audiences – this time as guest speaker at the inaugural KPMG Germany Digital Assets Salon in Frankfurt, which took place last week, 30th November.

Speaking to an audience of over 70 attendees from companies including Google, Deutsche Börse Digital Exchange, Clearstream Banking, and Fireblocks, Max conducted a presentation on ‘Challenges and Opportunities to Participate in the EU #DLT Regime and Development of a DLT-based #capitalmarketinfrastructure’.

Judging by the reception to both the presentation and Q&A session, the topic was as well received in Frankfurt as it has been at other events where Max and the 21X team has presented in the past month – including in the US, Portugal, UK, Austria and Italy.

Commenting on the event, Jens Siebert, partner for the future of financial services at KPMG Germany, said:

" Digital Assets are dependent on developing a fully functioning ecosystem. Strategic partnerships and collaborations will therefore become increasingly important, and this is exactly what the Digital Asset Salon is about.”

Prior to the kick-off, Max and Jens took the opportunity to film a video outlining the work that KPMG and 21X have undertaken to date in 21X’s application for its EU DLT Regime license. The completed film will be available shortly.

Our thanks go to Jens, who led the event superbly as host of the salon, and to KPMG for extending its invitation to Max. We wish KPMG well for further events in the series.
