Starting from November 7, Saint-Petersburg welcomes all crypto enthusiasts to their annual two-day crypto-forum. Judging by their success last year, when a month before the conference all the tickets were sold out, and it gathered more than 1700 people. Many expect that this event will be among one of the top in the world this year. More than 5000 attendees, 80 speakers from more than 70 countries from the leading cryptocurrency companies in the industry.
By their words, what sets them aside from the classic conferences, is “the complete absence of promotional reports. All presentations are of a practical nature and are aimed at telling the participant how to make money on cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology,” says in their website.
This year Blockchain Life forum has gathered some pretty big names from the crypto industry. One of the top names is the controversial supporter of Bitcoin Cash – Roger Ver. Roger is going to do a presentation over Skype on the future of cryptocurrencies called “How will cryptocurrency change the world?”. Roger always attracts much attention, because he is known to express very aggressive and questionable ideas and facts.
Tone Vays, trader and analyst on cryptocurrencies, also is going to cover a Skype presentation on the inevitable bubble of ICOs. Tone is known to attend the top cryptocurrency events in the world, sharing his ideas and beliefs about crypto, openly speaking about his open positions and his views on the crypto industry as a whole.
In general, the forum will gather a lot of industry professionals and company founders. The most famous being Martin Kuvandzhiev, the Co-Founder of Bitcoin Gold, Klim Geran, the head of NEM in Russia, Edward Chen, the Senior Director of Huobi Exchange, Vyacheslav Bredikhin from Bitmain, and Arthur Aziz, the Founder of B2BX.
Also, three secret speakers are assigned.
The main topics
Blockchain Life 2018 mostly will focus on the topics about creating, managing and the life cycle of ICOs in 2018. There will be multiple discussion panels and individual presentations on the secrets of building a successful ICO in 2018. The speakers will analyze the ICO market, share the top aspects of a perfect pitch and explain how to maintain the project after the ICO stage is over.
Also, a big emphasis is on the future of crypto exchanges. Specifically, Maximilian Marenbach will talk about Kraken, and Edward Chen will speak about Huobi exchange. The forum will gather many representatives from Russia’s leading tech, government, and innovation companies. The leader of the government working group on cryptocurrencies, Elina Sidorenko, during a discussion panel, will talk about cryptocurrency regulations in Russia.
Also, many presentations will be about crypto mining and trading. How to make money during this bear market, and how to look at it positively.
Blockchain Life Awards 2018
That is the characteristic which sets this event aside. There will be an awards ceremony with multiple nominations. Users who visited the event’s webpage could vote for their favorite Russian media, exchange blockchain project, ICO advisors, ICO agencies and the best advertising networks for crypto projects. The winners will be announced during the event. Interestingly enough, the nomination – “The most promising ICO in 2018” was shut down because of a cyber attack. The voting has finished at the moment.
Go and get your tickets while you can!
The conference is tomorrow, and the tickets are still live.
Overall, judging by the promotional materials, in which they position this event as one of the biggest in the world, the conference is expected to meet the world standards of a successful business event. However, since the majority of speakers are Russian, we hope that there will be no inconvenience with the translation materials.
Looks like a great event where to meet potential business partners and advisors in the crypto industry, and while doing that you can learn something new about the technology and where it is heading. Gathering more than 5000 participants is exceptional. Speakers from more than 70 different countries where you have never been, or even didn’t know that such existed, will give you insights and their positions on crypto. This is a must-attend event if you are operating with ICOs and crypto in general.
Best Coin Investments also is attending this event. We will provide you with a review of what exactly happened, who said what and how did it look. Stay tuned for more information!
