VNX Exchange Takes Part in ICT Spring Europe

May 28, 2019

VNX Exchange took part in ICT Spring Europe, a leading global tech conference that took place in Luxembourg on May 21-22.


A host of formidable speakers included the prime minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel, Global Chairman of PwC Bob Moritz and Benoît Legrand, CEO at ING Ventures and Chief Innovation Officer at ING.


At a panel with a number of experts on digital assets Alexander Tkachenko, VNX Exchange CEO, talked about the importance of investing into financial instruments backed by real-life tangible assets. VNX offers exactly that by tokenizing VC funds’ startup portfolios. Alexander also shared his vision of mainstream adoption of digital assets and the power this new technology holds to transform our daily lives.


Alexander discussed the new status that digital assets are getting among institutional investors and regulators as attitude towards them begin to positively shift.


When asked about the biggest challenges of adoption of digital assets, Alexander said that their newness remains the biggest obstacle. This is why early adopters will be some of the biggest winners as digital assets are slowly but steadily entering our day-to-day lives.


He expressed certainty in that a tipping point in how digital assets are perceived is coming soon. He believes that Luxembourg will be on the forefront of the new changes.

“Luxembourg won’t be left behind but actually lead this revolution, especially for the fintech and financial sector,” he said.

In addition to taking part in the heated panel discussion that prompted a lot of debate among the members of Luxembourg’s blockchain community, VNX Exchange also made donations to support the charities behind the FinTech Fight Club that took place on the sidelines of ICT Spring. A series of three real-life boxing matches between the leaders of Luxembourg’s fintech ecosystem, the fights aimed to raise money for several Luxembourg-based charities. Special chocolate tokens represented participants’ votes. VNX Exchange matched each vote for a fighter with a donation of 25 euro cents, the price of a VNX token. The resulting money went to support those charities.
