Please join for a pan­el led by Bri­an Elders.

This ses­sion will cov­er:

Real Estate, one of the hottest top­ics in secu­ri­ty tokens. Most speak about doing this – but we have a pan­el of peo­ple who are exe­cut­ing and have exe­cut­ed deals.

Mahesh Har­ilela will start us off with some per­spec­tives from his back­ground in Hong Kong prop­er­ty. Mid-way Andrew Tzial­li will take a pause to dive into the legal con­sid­er­a­tions. After both pre­sen­ta­tions there will be a pan­el dis­cus­sion on the prac­ti­cal­i­ties of “mak­ing this hap­pen”.

Be sure to reg­is­ter. All reg­is­trants will receive the record­ing fol­low­ing the online FIRESIDE chat.
