The largest Nordic blockchain summit – Moontec, is right around the corner.

If you like what you read, feel free to share it:

Starting next week, one of the most prominent summits in the northern Europe region will take place. It is a two-day conference beginning from Monday, November 26 and ending on November 27, respectively. Moontec resides in the Baltic crypto capital – Tallin, Estonia. Last year all the tickets were sold out, and more than 2000 attendants from 30+ countries visited the event. 

Moontec… to the moon?

The event mainly focuses on the development and use cases of blockchain technologies and companies operating with cryptocurrencies. This year will bring a much more organized and selected schedule, and most certainly will draw new areas of interest. From the beginning, Moontec has attracted industry professionals from all around the world. Big companies like Microsoft and IBM is returning to the conference, and this year one of the key speakers is Nicholas Merten, the man behind one of the most popular crypto youtube channels – DataDash. It is most definitely worth to come and see his presentation on “How Cryptocurrencies are Disrupting and Liberating Emerging Markets.”

The crypto capital of the Baltic region

Estonia, in general, has been an early cryptocurrency and digital trend adaptor. Their e-residency platform is fast gaining popularity. It launched on December 1, 2014, and it allows non-Estonians access to Estonian services such as company formation, banking, payment processing, and taxation. It is reasonably easy to use and even more comfortable to form.

Ott Vatter, the deputy director at e-residency, will host the opening speech. Moreover, the subject of e-residency will be widely discussed during the conference day one. Kaspar Korjus, the managing director at e-residency, will speak on several discussion panels about the governments’ ability to support blockchain, and weather e-residency can help countries to scale.

No ICOs this year

This year Moontec has decided not to allow ICO pitches. So there won’t be any ICOs at all presenting their “soon to be” products. They write: “With the majority of Blockchain events becoming ICO pitching arenas, we decided to prohibit ICO promotion on our stages and focus on the technological aspects of Blockchain and its use cases.” We congratulate this decision because we believe that allowing ICOs to present their yet undeveloped ideas to attendants who paid their hard earned money, was not ethically correct.

Industry professionals

Last year Moontec gathered speakers and product stands from prominent tech companies around the world. Such companies as Microsoft, IBM, Hyperledger, Consensys, Lykke and many more were the key attendees.

This year will be no exception as many of these companies are returning to the conference to share their freshly developed ideas. Of course, new companies have joined in like OKEx exchange, CoinJar, Revolut, representatives from NEO blockchain, Lloyds Bank, and even Interpol. So it is safe to say that this year the event will be twice as better as it was last year. Meaning that even more crypto ground gets covered in these two days.

Conclusion

Moontec most certainly looks like a go-to event. It will mostly focus on actual technology rather than discuss the possibilities that future offers. Day one is specifically for regulatory enquires. Members from the European Parliament are expected to present their view on blockchain technologies as well. However, the second day will mainly outline blockchain use cases among many companies.

Best Coin Investments proudly can say that we are the media partners for this event. So we will cover a review after the event and keep you posted about the ongoings within the summit by communicating through our Twitter account.

If you are near Tallin during November 26-27, definitely come and take a look at this event as it will share some of the most profound insights on where the global cryptocurrency market is heading.
