Going to "FinTech Forward 2018"? Here is how to prep for the @CFTC's inaugural conference, to have better conversations while there by understanding what is going on in crypto today.

1/ What are you interested in? Some good topics are: RegTech, digital payments, neo-"gold standard", cryptography, smart-contract virtual machines...
2/ For "RegTech" (technology that enhances regulatory processes) and regular-"Reg": You could, for instance, read up on the new @GeminiDotCom Gemini-Dollar and learn about the 3 layers to their ERC20 smart-contract, designed to help with compliance.
3/ You could also review @coincenter research reports or blog posts, a good one from @jerrybrito talks about the need for a de minimis exemption for crypto, similar to the one for personal foreign currency transactions, so you don't need to report <$200 gains on coffee purchases.
4/ If you are interested in digital payments, you may want to go poke around the website for @lightning, or if you are an audio/visual learner here is a good video from @aantonop on Lightning Network:
5/ For learning about store-of-value applications and neo-"gold standard", @saifedean's new book, The Bitcoin Standard, is a great place to start...
6/ If you are interested in cryptography and the underlying technology of bitcoin, check out the great resources on or browse through some of @IvanOnTech's YouTube videos.
7/ If smart-contracts are your thing, check out… or check out @aantonop's book on the EVM:
8/ I'll see you at the conference! #FinTechForward18
