2. What could a yacht broker do now to prepare for a crypto future? [8:47]
3. If a broker was interested in cryptocurrency, should they accept it themselves or use a third-party? [11:23]
4. How long do you think before cryptocurrency becomes more prevalent in the luxury asset space? [16:34]

How many attendees think businesses should accept crypto as a payment method?
90% of attendees indicated that businesses should accept cryptocurrency as a payment method.
8. What does the payment journey look like for a client paying in crypto?
For most businesses, using a third-party payment service will be like accepting any foreign currency. The third-party will accept the cryptocurrency and convert it to the receiver’s native currency. As with foreign currencies, it might be that the exact price is fixed close to payment to ensure no parties are adversely affected by price fluctuations.
9. Should a broker have crypto reserves?
Unless a broker is handling cryptocurrency directly, this is almost certainly unnecessary and could potentially leave a business exposed to price fluctuations.
