BACK TO EVENTS
You will hear from some of the most influential people in the Blockchain and cryptocurrency space. Our speakers include industry leaders and visionaries who have helped shape the phenomenon which has changed the world as we knew it.
2018 marked a major shift in the crypto market. Prices crashed, traditional ICOs declined in popularity and security tokens have started to gain more traction. Similarly, blockchain technology is also facing new challenges due to the need for user-friendly products and real-world adoption.
