Below are some images and photos of people that Crypto Lists met during the crypto conference in Gibraltar, 2022, organised by Pete Burgess. Check out the video from when we went to attend the Crypto Gibraltar conference and what it looked like over there.
Let us start with Peter Burgess who spent lots of time to organise this amazing event.
Pete Burgess – The organiser
Pete Burgess is the organiser of GibTech and Crypto Gibraltar. Pete had a challenging time to find sponsors for Crypto Gibraltar in the bear market. Still, he managed to find enough and made a great crypto event for a niche market. Mr Burgess hosted a wide range of topics. Visitors listened to facts about crypto regulation in one of the first markets that regulate crypto funds, market makers, exchanges and other related businesses too. Other topics include diversity in the Gibraltar cryptocurrency market, NFTs, intersting stablecoin disussions, the future of DeFi and what’s going on with CBDCs. There were also topics a about the future for payments in the crypto market.
Jonas Schmidt, SSW Alpha Rock Fund
Jonas moved from Germany to Gibraltar to handle market making strategies which is used for in-house crypto trading at a very successful Gibraltarian company, founded by Germans. Crypto Lists had a chance to learn a bit more about what a “fair price” is for a market maker – a very interesting topic if you like trading, trading strategies and automated trading. How does a market maker work? How does a liquidity provider make money? Stay tuned, we might be able to get a short interview with Jonas..
Daniel Vu – VIP boxes at football clubs
Daniel Vu is a Bulgarian mathematics and gambling expert that used to live in London over 10 years, before moving to Gibraltar.
He is founder and CEO of Veblen – a marketplace for VIP seats and VIP boxes at football clubs. Here people can buy, sell or trade VIP boxes as well as fractionalise them into season tickets and single game tickets. The fascinating thing with Daniels approach is that he is selling the VIP tickets as NFTs. When it comes to prices for VIP boxes on football games like AC Milan or Liverpool FC, we are yet to find out what the prices will be like. It’s clear that you can pay in ETH or USDT. Let’s hope that prices for a single match is affordable, so it is possible to attend some matches from a football VIP box. In either case, it’s an different approach to handle NFTs integrated into ticket sales – a top use case for non fungible tokens. Looking forward to see how it develops.
Scott Malsbury – Community creator for AAVE
Scott Malsbury was handling the ICO of AAVE, a token with an impressive return – from 0.01 USD up to over 600 USD, an increase of 60 000x (600 000%), before turning down to 75.9 USD when writing this. After the successful ICO, he made a “decent return” to say the least, and decided to sail around the world – two times. Can you blame him? What would you do if you made a return of 600 000%? Drinking pina coladas all day in Caribbean, getting a penthouse in NYC, becoming a ETH whale or sail around the world a few times like Scott? If you need some amazing promotion and community building, perhaps Scott could be open to some consultancy work to launch a new cryptocurrency.
Mikko Ohtamaa and Markus from Finland
One guy that got into crypto really early is Mikko Ohtamaa from TradingStrategy.ai. Mikko was CTO for one of the first crypto exchanges – Local Bitcoins (see review). However, he left Local Bitcoins (that you can try here), and is now focusing on algo trading for decentralised markets.
Trading Strategy is not launched or open to the public yet. Crypto Lists got a preview and over 1.5 million trading pairs for cryptocurrencies are supported, across 4 blockchains today. However, within short Avalanche will also be supported, making it 5 blockchains. The interesting thing with Trading Strategy is that you can select the time frame and do backtesting on various marketplaces for crypto. It seems like they support 1000’s of crypto exchanges and DEX at the moment. This is certainly a business that Crypto Lists would like to follow and see how it develops.
The Anonymous Belgians – Melvin & Christophe
The semi anonymous Belgians, Melvin and Christophe, have launched quite a few eminent NFT collections. Perhaps you already heard about Anonymous Astronauts NFTs already, and if you have not – check out their artwork and long term benefits. Among the HODL benefits from their connection, you find passive income, continuous rewards and airdrops, Anonymous Astronauts club access, and will always be on the whitelist for new projects launched by the same team. Many of the NFTs from AA such as the Solegetic Collection is released on the XRP blockchain. In light of the recent legal battles between Ripple and SEC, Crypto Lists engaged in lots of discussions around that. In either case, it seems like the Belgian NFT team are going to launch several other collections in the near future.
Paul Sisnett – The CBDC expert
Paul Sisnett, the co-founder of Satellite Moving Devices Group, is convinced the future of money will not be centralised around fiat currencies alone but will be more about moving value regardless of the digital asset used.
Paul Sisnett is based in Amsterdam and has been working with CBDCs for many years. In his seminar about central bank digital currency he explained about many misconceptions surrounding stablecoins. For starters, how CBDCs are created is totally different between various countries. While China’s CBDC system is built with surveillance in mind, several other countries are not created in the same manner. Crypto Lists readers are probably keen to know which CBDCs they talked about and perhaps we can get an interview with Paul in the near future, to clarify some of the differences and changes in regulation related to central bank issued digital currency.
Derren Powell from Mastercard
The audience had the pleasure to hear and speak to Darren Powell, the vice president of Fintech for UK and Ireland at Mastercard. He explained about Mastercard’s role in connecting with fintech companies, that are keen to offer their services with Mastercard integration. Dave Carr, a developer that created several integrations where you can use Mastercard for crypto deposits, went on stage and explained how it works when you like to integrate with a well known debit-card provider. People from the audience asked about the difference between Mastercard and VISA for crypto deposits. According to Derren, Mastercard got 80% of the fintech market in the UK among the debit card providers, since they make it simple to onboard new clients and got a huge network that can discuss and learn how to get started.
Brendan Beeken from the Isle of Man
Brendan Beeken is an entrepreneur and investor that is about to launch his own crypto exchange with 2M of his own investment, along with a couple of other supporters. But first, there is an ICO for their upcoming token. Crypto Lists might follow this project and report about their journey – if the white paper sounds interesting. Expecting to get the white paper from Brendan next week.
