Something that was considered by most as just a good solution for financial transaction has now mushroomed into a means to ease processes for almost every type of business. The rapid evolution of blockchain technology and its varied applications were at no time more prominent than in 2017, when startups based on this technology succeeded in raising a whopping $5.6 billion in funds via ICO.
To make the most out of the opportunities offered by the rapidly evolving blockchain technologies, it is essential to be updated on the latest developments in the arena. And, the best way to do so is by attending some of the top conferences and events associated to the space. But, blockchain events can offer much more than just news. They prove to be excellent venues to meet and network with thought leaders in the field, get to hear their opinions and expectations regarding the future outlook of the technology and explore how others are applying blockchain to streamline processes.
At Contentworks, we attribute our continuing success to the fact that we regularly participate in these kinds of events, which have helped us stay in touch not just with the evolution in blockchain technology, but also with those working to disrupt various industries through the application of this technology.
The good news is that all kinds of blockchain events are now being held across the world, all through the year. So, it will never be too difficult to find one close to your location. Here’s a roundup of the best blockchain events you should attend in Europe during 2018.
1. London Fintech Week
To be held from July 6 to July 13, at QEII Centre in Westminster, London Fintech Week promises to be an exciting week of workshops, exhibitions, conferences, meetups, hackathons and parties. Leaders of the global fintech industry are expected to share their knowledge at this event. The primary aim of the event is to enhance the dialogue between established corporate houses, innovative and disruptive startups, investors and the media. Each day will focus on a different fintech topic, while ensuring that there is plenty of time for participants to meet and network.
Part of the Blackarrow Blockchain Series of conferences, BlockVienna is scheduled to be held on August 17, 2018, at Schloss Schönbrunn Apothekaertrakt in Vienna. The main objective of this conference is to educate the participants regarding both the opportunities and the challenges that face the blockchain and cryptocurrency arena.
3. Asset Backed Crypto Summit
Scheduled to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on September 20-21 at Estoril Casino’s “Salão Preto e Prata,” Asset Backed Crypto Summit will feature talks and discussions by some of the leading names in the blockchain domain. They will cover diverse topics, from “Social Media and the Rise of Blockchain” to “Tokens and Valuation,” “How to Fix Scalability and High Volatility Issue on Blockchain” and much more. The event is also meant to be a space for startups to showcase how they have successfully applied the technology to diverse industries.
4. Malta Blockchain Summit 2018
Scheduled to be held on November 1-2, 2018, at the Intercontinental Malta, Malta Blockchain Summit 2018 focuses on the various applications of blockchain technology and the regulatory framework. It is expected to be attended by 4,000 delegates from all across the world. The event will feature a hackathon and is being pitched as an excellent venue for ICOs to connect with investors.
5. Decentralized 2018
My hot pick for blockchain events this year is Decentralized 2018, to be held on November 14-16 at the Divani Caravel in Athens, Greece. Decentralized 2017 was a huge success, which motivated the University of Nicosia to organize the event this year as well. We, at Contentworks, look forward to participating in this international summit, which will feature over 70 speakers and more than 1,200 participants from over 50 nations. We expect it to be a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and innovative ideas, while taking a closer look at the implications of blockchain for business and politics.
