This week, I had a chance to attend DC Fintech Week 2023 in Washington, DC, and it left a good aftertaste. First, the two-day event organization was at the highest level and presented great opportunities for learning and networking. Kudos to Chris Brummer, Georgetown Law, and the team that made this experience seamless! The full event agenda is at https://dcfintechweek.org/agenda-2023-2/

Based on my listening to the speakers and interactions with the attendees and speakers, I am going to share several observations and a summary of the talks. First, I will briefly summarize my observations and then share the points mentioned during panel discussions or speaker sessions.
