Part 2: April 15, 2020

11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London

In just three months, Covid-19 has changed everything from our daily routines to the world economy. In this two-part webinar, we’ll tell you what it all means for cryptocurrency.

Part 1: What Covid-19 Means for Cryptocurrency Markets

Covid-19 quickly shocked cryptocurrency markets, with Bitcoin’s price plummeting under $4,000 in early March amidst the biggest exchange inflows ever seen. Since then, the price has recovered and stabilized above $6,000. But questions remain.

  • Which types of buyers and sellers sold, bought, and leveraged their bets?
  • What was the role of Tether as a source of liquidity?
  • Why has price stabilized and what can we expect next?

Our Chief Economist Philip Gradwell covers all this and more in Part 1 of our Covid-19 Webinar Series, along with special guests Paolo Ardoino, Chief Technology Officer, Bitfinex and Tether, Leonardo Real, Chief Compliance Officer, Tether, Alex Laughton-Scott, Associate Director, CoinShares, and Christopher Bendiksen, Head of Research, CoinShares.

Part 2: Cryptocurrency and the Criminals Taking Advantage of Covid-19

Wednesday, April 15, 2020, 11 am ET

Any crisis will have bad actors looking to profit off of it. We’re already getting reports of cybercriminals using Covid-19 to scam the vulnerable, extort healthcare providers, and spread misinformation. In this webinar, we’ll tell you about the role cryptocurrency plays in Covid-19-related crimes such as:

  • Scams taking advantage of the crisis
  • Ransomware attacks against healthcare providers
  • How darknet markets react to a pandemic

Join our Head of Research Kim Grauer and Sales Engineer Scott Johnston for a deep dive into these topics, plus information on how the cryptocurrency industry and law enforcement can work together to fight back.
