The blockchain ecosystem depends on people from different projects and perspectives coming together to exchange ideas and drive the way forward for mass adoption.


Anchor, the first non-flationary stablecoin pegged to global economic growth, and crypto influencer Michael Nye co-hosted a memorable and enlightening boat party with a panel on how to drive mass adoption of cryptocurrencies alongside the Crypto Valley Conference in Zug, Switzerland on June 25th. Moderated by Michael Nye and recorded live for his Evolvement Podcast, panelists included industry thought leaders Teck Chia, Partner at Binance Labs; Ilya Abugov, Head of Product and Research at Crypto Briefing; Joris Reding, Blockchain Consultant for Inacta; Daniel Popa, Founder and CEO of Anchor; and surprise guest, crypto icon Didi Taihuttu, Founder of the Bitcoin Family.

Guests enjoyed a scenic cruise around Lake Zug while listening to important aspects that will help evolve the crypto industry and engage the masses such as usability, accessibility, affordability, and education. Topics discussed also included varying perspectives on Facebook’s new stablecoin Libra, as well as the influence of banks, governments, and regulators. Stay tuned to Michael Nye’s Evolvement podcast to listen to the panel discussion and hear what experts had to say.

Regarding the event, Michael Nye, host of Evolvement Podcast expressed, “The Anchor boat experience in Zug during Crypto Valley Week was a ton of fun. Great people, perfect venue, and good food. It was a real honor to host the panel and co-brand with Anchor, and I’m excited for the next one!”

On the topic of the panel, Ilya Abugov, Head of Product and Research at Crypto Briefing, conveyed, “It was great to participate in a thoughtful conversation about adoption. Conversations like this will help the industry mature.”

Joris Reding, Blockchain Consultant for Inacta, added, “Usability is the most important aspect when it comes to reaching mass adoption. If the usage is too complicated, you lose 95% of the users already – independently if a Bitcoin transaction would be cheaper than an international bank transfer for example.”

Daniel Popa, Founder and CEO of Anchor, added, “I truly appreciate our panelists, guests, and Michael Nye for being part of our event and creating an unforgettable experience. The blockchain ecosystem depends on people from different projects and perspectives coming together to exchange ideas and drive the way forward for mass adoption.”
