Cyprus and Greece are part of a larger Milken Institute World Conference program

Global leaders in finance, economics and technology gathered in Los Angeles to participate in the prestigious Milken Institute World Conference. Among the distinguished guests, proudly representing Cyprus, was the young entrepreneur Dr Demetrios Zamboglou.

I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to attend. The Milken event was not just another conference, ”noted Dr Zamboglou. In addition to the valuable information shared during the panels, participants had the opportunity to engage in conversations and participate in cultural events, from the pop art exhibit to hiking in the Runyon Canyon, creating a true experience of connection.

During the conference, the Cypriot entrepreneur attended various panels focused on his area of ​​expertise like commerce, blockchain, sports promotion and artificial intelligence (AI), obtaining valuable insights from current and future business leaders.

Crypto Industry and Commerce Outlook

According to experts, trading commissions are now at their lowest levels in history, while traditional stocks have been made more accessible to retail traders through splitting. At the same time, digitization has bridged the gap between institutional and retail traders / investors, to ubiquity.

“I have always been fascinated by trading, and the idea that you only need your cell phone to access global markets is both liberating and opportunistic. Nowadays, thanks to technological advances, anyone can access the markets from their mobile phone. Whether you want to trade stocks, commodities, cryptos or something else, now everything is possible with the push of a button, ”noted Dr Zamboglou.

Another interesting topic was the social aspect of commerce and the network effect. Dr Zamboglou commented that without any prior knowledge of finance, traders can emulate other traders by making passive trades based on traceable performance over time. Such activity can grow exponentially and traders can increase their positions depending on the network effect.

Additionally, the crypto market is thriving and delivering on its original promise of providing powerful functionality for everyone. The ability to trade cryptos for financial assets and convert / trade with Defi (decentralized finance) without human interactions is just one of the many notable milestones in the development of cryptocurrency.
