Is Bitcoin just another tulip bulb? Or a truly global transformation?At first glance, Bitcoin looks like any other pump-and-dump scheme. But a deeper examination reveals a revolutionary technology, one that’s capable of transforming commerce on a planetary scale. That’s why, as a financial advisor, you must become knowledgeable about bitcoin and other digital assets – and the underlying technology known as the blockchain.
During a special workshop, presented by Ric Edelman and the RIA Digital Assets Council (RIADAC), you’ll get the education you need – so you can decide whether your clients should invest, and if so, how to incorporate these strategies into your practice.

It’s easy to dismiss this topic as just another short-lived fad. But that would be foolish. Every major bank in the world is developing blockchain technology, and many of the largest institutions in the world are engaging in digital assets. Fidelity has launched Fidelity Digital Asset Services to let investors trade and store bitcoin; it’s been awarded a trust-company charter from New York’s Department of Financial Services, authorizing it to offer custody and trading services to institutional and individual investors. Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Duke, UNC and dozens more college endowments have invested in bitcoin and other digital assets, while Facebook has announced plans to launch Libra, a new global currency.
And bitcoin is just the beginning. Already emerging is tokenization, the next big thing for the future of investing. We’ve been tokenizing companies for centuries – you can buy IBM for about $114 billion, or you can buy a tiny slice of it – a single share (a token) – for about $130. Why stop there? Thanks to the blockchain, you can now buy tokens (small pieces) of apartment buildings in Manhattan, rare wines, Old Masters paintings, even exotic sports cars. Using the blockchain, investors can now buy a token (akin to a stock’s share) of just about anything. Tokenization will revolutionize asset ownership on a global scale – and the education you’ll get at RIADAC’s pre-con session at T3 will show you both how tokenization works and the implications for investment management and asset allocation.
But buying digital assets is one thing; tracking prices across different market-making platforms is quite another. Several companies have emerged to resolve a key challenge facing investors and investment advisors, and at the T3 Conference during this special pre-con session, you’ll get an inside look at them.
You will also explore the tax and regulatory status of digital assets. The SEC says bitcoin is not a security, and the Federal Reserve says bitcoin is not currency. The IRS says bitcoin is property subject to taxation, but the CFTC says bitcoin is a commodity. What’s a taxpayer to do? Come and find out!

During “Digital Assets Explained” you will learn about the exchanges where you can buy digital assets, and the funds that invest in them. You’ll also discover how your clients can acquire stakes in companies that are building blockchain technology. And most importantly, you’ll delve into the key question: In an asset allocation model, should bitcoin be listed as equity, as debt – or as a completely new asset class?
This special pre-con at the T3 Advisor Conference will feature some of the leading experts in the digital asset space. The program will be led by RIADAC founder Ric Edelman, one of the most influential financial advisors in the nation. We look forward to seeing you at T3!
It’s free to attend but registration in advance is suggested.
