Forbes Monaco to Host First Annual Art and Crypto Gala

Cryptocurrency has been the topic of conversation and pop culture in recent years, but the latest surge has come amid the pandemic, propelling the decentralised currency—and simultaneously blockchain technology, with its promise of endless possibilities—to new heights.

Of course with the surge in NFT popularity the topic is gaining new steam. Naturally, Monaco—a place that is forever at the forefront of luxury trends—and the magazine, Forbes Monaco, that captures the very essence of the Principality and all things in vogue, are set to host the 1st Annual Forbes Monaco Art and Crypto Gala at the Monaco Yacht Club on 13 November 2021. The exclusive invites only black-tie gala will educate, celebrate, and raise awareness around the topic while bringing together some of the leading minds in the burgeoning space.

With the “Age of Cryptocurrency” upon us, now is the time to wholeheartedly embrace change and dive head first into the uncharted waters of the technology, and the potential it holds for the future. The event will consist of a panel discussion with various experts: Atari’s CEO Frederic Chesnais will cover “Blockchain Implementation,” Danish Chaudhry, CEO of Exchange will present a “Crypto Exchanges FAQ,” and Matt Larvy, the CEO and Co-founder of Realm Art, will talk about “The Metaverse.” Aside from invaluable information, a live art auction will take place and will feature one-of-a-kind pieces from several renowned artists, as well as the first ten original covers of Forbes Monaco—which have been digitised and tokenised into NFTs. As most local gatherings go, a portion of the proceeds from the evening will benefit an esteemed Monaco foundation.

The renowned guest list includes guest speakers, including Naegele Law Founder Thomas Nägale; Founder and CEO of LunarCRUSH, Joe Vezzani; and Co-founder and CEO of MoonPay, Ivan Soto-Wright—to name a few. Locals and visiting guests alike will enjoy the finest entertainment, while contributing to a cause that holds the key to transforming the world as we know it. The digital future is here, and Forbes Monaco is leading the way ahead.
