BlockShow 2017: Blockchain Revolution Goes to Europe
- 18.01.2017 07:45 am
Blockchain technology is becoming more and more demanded worldwide, and today we all have a unique opportunity to witness “the biggest innovation after the Internet itself” gaining a growing number of implementations - both within and outside the financial sector.
This significant process inevitably goes hand in hand with massive informational support - and, consequently, cross-industry popularization of Blockchain. And this popularization is the major mission of the popular Bitcoin & Blockchain media outlet CoinTelegraph. Wishing to contribute to the global recognition of Blockchain, the CoinTelegraph team set out to organize a number of thematic events; the first, Helsinki Blockchain Conference 2016, was held in August this year and managed to attract massive attention from the regional Blockchain community.
Why you should be there
Inspired by such a successful debut, in November 2016 CoinTelegraph has announced BlockShow Europe 2017, its next conference, which, according to organizers, promises to be the largest European platform for showcasing established Blockchain solutions. The BlockShow Europe 2017 programme is designed to provide every participant with the comprehensive outlook on the Blockchain industry and how it is developing at the moment.
The conference will give an opportunity to get the most recent first-hand information about the technical, legal, investment and other nuances of the current Blockchain ecosystem. Key industry players and the most influential Blockchain persons will provide a detailed insight into how Blockchain is being implemented in different parts of the world and what significant impact it has already had on the global markets. Thus, BlockShow Europe 2017 will include talks and panel discussions on such topics as “Overcoming the challenges of Blockchain implementation”, “Tokenization of assets & Security on Blockchain”, “Blockchain from Bank and Enterprise perspective” and other. All that will be quite a valuable experience for those who in any way would like to be a part of the ecosystem: by discovering new investment opportunities, starting their own Blockchain business or seeking to empower the existing products.
As BlockShow Europe 2017 approaches, the conference keeps engaging more and more of the brightest industry representatives. Therefore, last week the organizers team introduced BlockShow’s Master of Ceremony - Elizabeth Lumley, Managing Director & Thought Leadership at Rainmaking. Elizabeth has spent over 20 years working in the financial technology space, most recently as Managing Director at Startupbootcamp FinTech London and as an editor at financial services and technology newswire, Finextra. In addition to being an internationally recognised conference speaker and moderator, she is also a regular contributor to Brett King’s Breaking Banks radio show on the VoiceAmerica Business channel.
The solemn speeches of Elizabeth Lumley will open and close the whole BlockShow Europe 2017 conference.
Among BlockShow Europe 2017 speakers are the prominent experts and practitioners of the global Blockchain scene, such as Paolo Tasca (Executive Director, UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies), Daniel Drummer (Vice President at JP Morgan), Angel Gonzalez (Executive IT Specialist at IBM), Jack Nikogosian (Head of Coinify Digital Innovation Lab), Tomasz Mloduchowski (CTO at Zerado), Alexander Ivanov (Founder and CEO at Waves), Marco Barulli (Co-Founder & Managing Director at Bernstein.io), Mika Lammi (Head of IoT Business Development at Kouvola Innovation Oy) Bernd Lapp (Advisor at Ethereum Foundation), Jamie Burke (Founder of Blockchain Angels), Matej Michalko (Founder & CEO at DECENT), Ned Scott (CEO & Co-founder at Steemit) and Bruce Pon (CEO & Co-Founder at BigchainDB).
