While Art always leads the way in revolutions, and they have with NFTS, we will one day very soon laugh at ourselves looking back at the good old days when “Bored Ape” dominated the NFT scene. This talk is about the true implications of a piece of code aka NFTs that can attach anything to blockchain aka the perfect notebook. From getting the world to carbon 0 using machine-to-machine NFTS, creating a marketplace for how quickly we get from one place to another with autonomous vehicles and tokenizing human ingenuity with an NFT for 5 hours of time with the world’s best experts, Sallyann,  bring to life for us NFTs in full bloom.

11:45 – 12:15 – How to Fight Counterfeit across Luxury Goods and Beyond by Sylwia Fitch, Founder at DeLux

Luxury goods sector growth is fully driven by Millenials and Gen Z, who by 2025 will account for way over half of the total luxury goods sales, bringing the value of the global luxury industry to over $350 bln. Value of fake luxury products are now larger than the rest of the industry combined at a value of $1.4tr and given the forecast growth in online sales (technology and on-line is essentially baked into every Millennial’s DNA), this is going to exceed maybe even $2tr by 2025.
Blockchain is the decentralized technology to overcome counterfeit challenge across all industries. It is about efforts from across many touch points and centralized approach to achieve a successful outcome. DeLux is working with luxury brands and technology providers to establish a global standard in guaranteeing provenance of products (and their materials) which will help protect the value of luxury brands, maximize consumer’s satisfaction and minimize the consequences of illegal trade across luxury and beyond.

14:45 – 14:55 – Introduction to the Future of Mobility Ecosystem by Scott Fulton, Co-Host, Co-CIO, and the Investment Director of VIVA Investment Partners

TESLA has baked the model for how the Mobility Ecosystem will work. In one company, they have imagined into existence the ecosystem and the economics of that ecosystem. That’s why they are worth more than the entire automotive industry combined. For the non-TESLA rest of world (ROW), whether an OEM, or a car rental company, or a taxi firm or an EV charging network, they need to understand their role in the ecosystem, and find the other parts. They will need a charging network, a battery firm, manufacturing, vehicles, a dashboard that integrates all of the expected functionality for the desired experience.

14:55 – 15:05 – How DRIVE Software Solutions is Strategic to the Mobility Ecosystem by ODO DRIVE

15:05 – 15:20 – How to Transition Fleets to EVs by Khasha Mekanik, Head of Global Business Development, ODO DRIVE
The history, evolution, and future of fleet management. Large enterprises operating hundreds or thousands of vehicles with hundreds or thousands of drivers face opportunities and pressure to capitalize on improved mobility technology. As opposed to the individual drivers, they have motivations, risks, costs, and environmental impacts that differ meaningfully. As well, there is the legislative influence that is forcing them to move faster, even if it is for their own good.

15:20 – 15:40 – The Future of Mobility Distribution by Marta Daina, Founder & CEO of iDEAL Rent
The pandemic has changed everything, including how people use mobility, with more and more choosing new alternatives to car ownership, car usership based solutions such as long term rental or car subscriptions. This shift to car-as-a-service is creating disruption in the traditional mobility distribution value chain. Where traditionally dealers and brokers played the leading role, emerging players such as finance, insurance and energy companies are entering mobility distribution creating new business models and opportunities. While the current semiconductor crisis and production slowdown is challenging the automotive industry, the tide of change in mobility distribution is the new reality. Once production returns to optimal levels, the shift will be further accelerated. As always, when there is a crisis, some entrepreneurs see an opportunity and at the FTE we will have our say on the Future Mobility Distribution.

15:40 – 15:55 – How Technology Firms can enable the Mobility Ecosystem by Sally Henshaw, Sales Director, ODO DRIVE
Thanks to technology and a plethora of start-ups and other disruptors, a range of new flexible and responsive mobility service models have emerged. In other words, instead of us adapting around the services, the services are adapting around us, creating a demand-led transport market. A unique combination of cross-sectoral capabilities is required to build enduring solutions to move people and goods, making collaboration a necessity. It may take the form of mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, or strategic alliances, to address considerations such as speed to market, scalability, flexibility, risk appetite, long-term vision, and Intellectual Property (IP). There are many examples of technology companies and OEMs collaborating (e.g. Daimler-Uber, Hyundai-Cisco, VW-Nvidia), combining deep automotive experience with new, disruptive technologies. Some collaborations may be long-term, others transitory, but speed is imperative to stay ahead. The strength of consumer demand, regulatory pressure, and the rate of technological development change in vehicle electrification and automation are increasing exponentially. This disruption is likely to be significant and bring great opportunities and risks.

10:35 – 11:05 – Stepping beyond the buzzwords— machine learning, big data and crypto by Thomas Laumer, The Well Fund

Digitalization has created a world where human and natural activity leaves a growing amount of traceable data points. At The Well we discover human inefficiencies and changes in societal trends by analysing this data. Crypto eats into the mainstream at an incredible pace. When in 2017 the main focus was on gambling with tokens, reminding everyone of the 2000 Tech Bubble, in 2020 a broad appreciation by renowned investors like Stanley Druckenmiller or Paul Tudor Jones provided comfort for more risk-taking and entrepreneurial spirits with an open mind. The NFT craze, gaming applications or the tokenization of football clubs further piqued mainstream curiosity for this complex and disrupting technology.  We expect this trend to continue and lead us to a future we call the “financialization of everything” whether it will be community tokens, local DAO’s or Network States. The future is too bright not to see the light. As a quantitative hedge fund, we focus on finding signal in the noise. We profit from deploying mathematical models that help us discover and quantify human biases and behaviours that lead to market inefficiencies. We play an important role as market participants by helping the market develop at a fair price. We employed our findings in various types of markets, proving our models profitable in every applicable asset class. Due to its volatility, crypto offers the most attractive return opportunities for us. We use a broad suite of statistical and machine learning tools to translate our insights into signals in a fully automated, quantitative way. With our early entry advantage, we were able to find many significant return opportunities, before our competition, in a novel market structure that is ripe with new opportunities and expect to be on the forefront of profiteers of the financialization trend.
