As we approach the end of a crucial year for blockchain, the number of questions that have come to the surface continues to grow every week. In a historic event that closes the year, BlockShow Asia Blockchain Week will amass the business leaders of all FinTech to reach a new consensus on exactly where it is headed. This event, which takes place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center in Singapore from November 27 to December 1, will present itself as one of the most important blockchain conferences ever made, covering every aspect of technology and its applications from the roots to the government. international. There is something for everyone in Asia Blockchain Week and it will be one of the biggest events ever made in the industry.
While the main attraction spans over two full days of speakers, networking events, exhibitions and panel discussions, the Asia Blockchain Week includes many other events taking place in the Marina Bay area. The first day of the conference (27 November) will see the debut of Blockchain2Energy Asia, which has distinguished itself as the main application of the blockchain in the energy sector and remains one of BlockShow's close partners. With an all-round discussion on energy and distributed register technology, it is one of the most important exams of the energy industry in the light of the blockchain.
After the two days of BlockShow, the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) and the Singapore Academy of Law raise debates on smart contracts and ICO listings and on their regulation, trust distribution and regulation on convergence of technology. This will undoubtedly give the government cooperation in the field a tread – act quickly, because there are limited places! Our LongHash partners also host a one-day event to end Asia Blockchain Week, giving conference attendees the chance to hold their final meetings as they take note of what the real and true cases are. use of blockchain in action.
What is BlockShow?
From a single conference held in 2016, BlockShow now hosts more events each year. It has a history of targeting the major innovation centers around the world, creating specialized conferences in the dominant technology centers of America, Europe and Asia. This year has already seen thousands of investors, engineers, enthusiasts and blockchain entrepreneurs participate in European BlockShow in Berlin, Germany, and in America BlockShow, which took place in Las Vegas, in the United States. Always attracting the interest of global figures such as Wikipedia's founder, Jimmy Wales, President Obama's Press Advance Director, Johanna Maska, and Techcrunch's editor-at-large, Mike Butcher, BlockShow bridges the gap between blockchain and the rest of the world. Asia Blockchain Week will see the largest number of participants in any BlockShow so far, creating a speech among many thousands of people about the future of this revolutionary technology.
The reality of blockchain conferences is that it is a fusion of abstract technology with social interaction. It is important to separate the Blocks from the Show, facing them individually individually before joining together to reach a consensus that values both in the environment of the real world in which it must operate. BlockShow is aimed at this model. With in-depth discussions on technologically advanced topics such as the integration of blockchain and artificial intelligence, or addressing the political nuances of the governments taking over the blockchain, it is necessary to take the time to meet in the room to divide these topics into a personal discussion. one that combines our human qualities with high-level abstractions. Because when the technicalities become too difficult to manage, participants can visit the art gallery on site, to see some of the most controversial crypto-art in the world, including the $ 6 million CryptoMother, signed by Buterin himself .
As the final event of 2018, this conference will be different from the others. It will not only bring the representation of some of the biggest names through cryptocurrency and business, collaborating with leading organizations such as Coinmarketcap, LongHash, Treecoin, Mithril, Connectome, Quanta, Vbit, SFA, Access, Blockchain I, Whale Block and many others, but it will also be an opportunity to listen to world-renowned speakers such as Bobby Lee, Tone Vays, Mark Mueller-Eberstein, Prof. David Lee, Dr. Ben Goertzel, Ted Lin, Jason Hsu, Michael Gu, Thomas Lee, Justin Chow, Jehan Chu, Martin Lim and over 60 others from the diverse world of organizations, companies, politicians, investors and thought leaders. In a world premiere, the exhibition this fall will include a live streaming segment, EXP20, which gives viewers a transparent look at the reality of startup launches, bringing ten promising companies to a group of investors, to convince senior ventures capitalists that their idea is worth investing. To make it even more unnerving, BlockShow attendees will be able to see everything unfold in person, on the second stage of the venue.
Why should I participate?
There was a tendency for blockchain conferences to move away from technology and instead focus on ostentation. Blockchain does not want to be flashy, nor hire Lamborghini to lure people into a scheme to 'get rich quick'! This not only creates a fracture in the community, but sends a message of frivolity to the rest of the world. It is essential that such events place the front and center of technology, inviting professionals and politicians to discuss its real meaning at every level of application. That's why BlockShow balances the representation of both sides: the chaos of entrepreneurship and the much slower approach of legislators, with a lot of representations also coming from a middle ground.
Start-ups wishing to bring their idea to the next level should not look beyond BlockShow Asia. Not only does the event offer discounted rates for corporate delegates, but there is a further incentive for those wishing to set up a booth and direct investors directly during the event in the main hall. With over a dozen major VC funds in attendance, it could be the perfect opportunity to attract the next financial boost and receive valuable insights along the way. Funds in the portfolio include JRR Crypto, Sora Ventures, BCI Fund, Blockchain I, LuneX Ventures, TRIVE, DYOR Capital, Rock Expansion, Plutusvc, Zenith Ventures, ZEOS Capital, Blockchain Founders Fund, Huobi Lab, QCP Capital, Fenbushi Capital and GBIC.
While it is important to stress that blockchain is a serious technology, there will be plenty of opportunities to leave the business behind and set off on the dancefloor. Meanwhile, there will be startup nights, get-togethers and impromptu parties that will take place throughout the iconic home of Marina Bay Sands and in the surrounding area. This will be the opportunity to forge more personal relationships among the participants and to meet the people who are at the forefront of this new technological movement. If you do not have your tickets yet, time is running out. With the event of the year taking place in a few days, this is the last opportunity to be the most important blockchain showcase of 2018.
