Luno came to Durban for Global Crypto’s “Future of Money” event at the end of November, and as expected, it was a memorable night.

On a beautiful Summer evening in Umhlanga, Durban, guests were greeted with drinks and pizza, where they connected with other FinTech enthusiasts at the venue’s gorgeous outdoor lounge area.

While many guests would consider themselves crypto enthusiasts, the reality is: the world of money is changing as rapidly as the digital landscape is, and the FinTech industry offers just as many transformative opportunities as crypto promised when it burst onto the scene a decade ago.

The Future of Money event saw some of South Africa’s great economic thinkers introduce their insights into what our economies could like in 10, 20 years and beyond.

There were tons of goodies on sale, including Bitcoin caps and T-shirts, where customers could of course pay in Bitcoin. The pizza however, was free.

Hardware wallets were also available to store your digital currency, which had some newbies scratching their heads as to how this “future of money” is already starting to take shape.

The Future of Money is no doubt a fascinating one, and we can’t wait to see how this financial revolution all unfolds. Once again thank you to Luno for their partnership in making this Durban Summit a great success, and thanks to those of YOU who attended.
