Rise of Bitcoin
Following the rise of Bitcoin and more recently established cryptocurrencies, it has become apparent that blockchain technology carries the disruptive potential to aid a variety of major industries, such as finance, banking, real estate, and many more besides. And the technology can even support businesses ranging scale from start-ups to world players.
In terms of the numbers, the event organisers have forecast that more than 40,000 visitors shall attend the conference, where more than 60 exhibitors and 30 speakers from over 40 countries shall be sharing their insights. Those in attendance will have two days in which to learn from blockchain experts, currency exchanges, and businesses using the technology.
During day one, attendees can sit in on a variety of talks that will explore the impact of blockchain on value, transformative potential, capital markets, community, supply chain, and advertising. On day two, the discussions will then address topics such as impact, opportunities, portfolio, trading, and decentralisation.
The organisers AFARB Limited, World Blockchain Organization (WBO), and World Federation of Free Trade Zones have secured the attendance of a number of blockchain experts. Those booked to speak at the event include Frank Zheng of WBO, Justin David of Bloom, Denis Shaiakhmetov of Efir.io, Salim Ali of LOYAKK.io, Brian Kanda of FloraChain, and Oscar Jofre of KoreConX, alongside many others.
