AGA was proud to be main sponsor of the first in-person Cryptoverse Summit in Mauritius, which took place on the 18th of May 2022 in partnership with IT services, consulting, and modern technology specialists Wakanda 4.0. The Summit was streamed online and had over 300 online attendees from Mauritius and worldwide

The aim of the summit was to bring more clarity to the world of Virtual Assets and Blockchain, offer updates on latest developments in the industry and to demonstrate how the Metaverse is going to change the world in near future, as highlighted by key players from across the industry. Delegates included those from management and IT companies, the Blockchain and Crypto Space, regulators, lawyers, and accountants.

Representing AGA at the conference was Ashveen Gopee, a member of the alliance's cryptocurrency global practice group, and the Managing Partner of law firm member Lex Frontier in Mauritius.

Ashveen presented and joined debates centred around the emerging cryptocurrency market and sat on a legal panel for discussions about the Virtual Asset and Initial Token Offerings Services Act in Mauritius.

Going forward, the CryptoVerse Summit will be taking place on a half yearly basis, to keep those in Mauritius and elsewhere, especially investors, updated about the latest developments within this dynamic industry.

Ashveen Gopee commented:

“Representing Alliott Global Alliance at this event, the first in Mauritius, has given the alliance, and our firm Lex Frontier, a platform to share the knowledge and experience we have in this exciting field.

Our participation has been invaluable because we have been able to provide an international perspective to a summit organised in a local jurisdiction. Seeing all the key players here altogether at this event is just the start of the challenges ahead for the industry.”
