CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland's "Solutions" blockchain conference, in its first year, will cost $ 595 if you buy a ticket before September 28th.
The conference is a cornerstone of the new strategy to make Cleveland a center for blockchain technology. This effort, dubbed "Blockland", is led by the automaker Bernie Moreno but involves civic leaders as the CEO of Destination Cleveland David Gilbert.
Destination Cleveland operates the conference, which will take place without rent through sponsorship of the county at the Huntington Convention Center.
The early bird rate of $ 595 is for two days of speakers and case-study discussions on the best way to use blockchain, an online distributed accounting system. Blockchain is known as the foundation of cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, but "Solutions" will look at applications including business, finance, government and healthcare.
Larry Sanger, the co-founder of Wikipedia and Joesph Lubin, co-founder of cryptocurrency Ethereum, will speak. More information here.
The main conference will take place on 3rd and 4th December, but will be preceded by two days of developer workshops. The first 150 developers who sign up for the conference and those workshops will pay $ 395.
Other rates are:
- Government rate of $ 495
- Student rate $ 100
- Rate of $ 500 per day
The price to participate The solutions seem to be less than half of a three-day "Consent" ticket to a blockchain conference focused on the cryptocurrency that Moreno attended before starting Cleveland's effort in the spring. Tickets for consent can cost up to $ 2000, according to CNBC.
That conference began three years ago and is now expected to attract more than 4,000.
