Dear Crypto Community and Blockchain buddies across the globe,
Welcome back to a special edition of Cryptonites On The Road during the World Economic Forum / Wef 2020 in Davos. In the coming weeks, we will be showcasing interviews with some of the sharpest minds in Fintech and Blockchain. So buckle up, and get ready to be Edutained!
In this episode, we are pleased to present you with a special guest, live from TechPark in Davos: Marc Bernegger, a Swiss superstar, and serial entrepreneur passionate about new technologies, the dotcom bubble, Fintech, and digital assets. Based in Zurich, he is an active board member and currently involved in Falcon Private Bank and Crypto Finance Group.
Marc has a fascinating background. In 1999 and at the age of 20, he founded the event platform usgang.ch, and was one of the founders of the ticketing-service amiando for which he received an award by the World Economic Forum called ‘WEF Technology Pioneer’ in 2010. In 2012, he discovered Bitcoin and started investing in Fintech companies and advocating for Blockchain adoption across Switzerland.
In this interview, he reminds us that technology is agnostic and that it doesn’t care about politics, but rather the power of mankind. He also explains how the early movers and shakers of crypto actually started in Zug, aka Crypto valley and why Switzerland has a decentralised political mindset from the start.

Join myself and the amazingly inspirational Marc P Bernegger Entrepreneur and Board member of Crypto Finance AG where we discuss Zug and Malta as crypto centric destination, a little about asset management, over regulation and their amazing conference which is coming up in Zug in January 2019!
Marc stress that right now we should be focusing on building a long term sustainable ecosystem. The ultimate tipping point is when no one cares about the technology anymore and just uses it. Then we have successful adoption. He is very much about long term impact
Crypto Finance AG is the only crypto asset management company regulated company by FEMA. They focus on bringing quality/established investors, hedge funds, high net-worths’ into the crypto investment world. Working out of their very beautiful and famous Cryptovilla in Zug, Marc inspired me to maybe have my own villa here in Malta!
The company is actually split up into 3 companies – 50 people
– crypto storage – institutional grade clients (up to 60 coins)
– crypto brokerage
– asset management – product funds (first company under FEMA) fully regulated crypto asset company
Uber has nothing to do with blockchain but a great example of a company that take existing rules. Some countries might decide to protects existing monopolies others might decide to adopt new technology and liberalise the new technologies.
Technology is agnostic, just existed and typically succeeding
CryptoValley – whats it like?

– Switzerland by nature is a liberal kind of country
– Support from government

Is for people who are fully focused on investment in this field. The conference takes place in the lovely location of St Moritz, Switzerland prior to the World economic Forum.
