Despite the #crypto bear market during 2018, the number of industry-related conferences did not see a steady decline in the second half of the year.

Significantly, the crypto and blockchain conferences reached their highest number in October and November 2018, as shown in the chart above. There were 53 encryption conferences held in October of last year and 52 last December.
Crypto Conferences record a high frequency
In May 2018, there were at least 50 cryptographic conferences held in different locations around the world. The Global Disruptive Innovation Summit of Silicon Valley and the New York Consensus were among the best known and most popular conferences in the blockchain sector.
Not many cryptographic conferences have been scheduled during the summer months of 2018, but activity has returned to normal in September, as there were about 40 major blockchain events taking place in several countries around the world. According to TradeBlock, the October and November conferences focused more on cryptology rather than business development.
As reported recently by CryptoGlobe, cryptography news coverage remained crowded, even after $ 700 billion was wiped out by the digital goods market in 2018. According to CryptoCompare's API, cryptocurrency coverage has increased in time. This is based on the analysis of almost 65,000 articles of about 25 different information points.
Crypto Adoption continues to grow
Research shows that the main sources of information such as Time, CNBC, Bloomberg, among others, have increasingly taken into account cryptography news. Although the cryptographic ecosystem seems to be grappling with capital, since many companies, including the blockchain-based social media platform, Steemit had to lay off 70% of its staff in November 2018, crypto adoption seems to be increasing.
As covered, there are now around 1,500 restaurants in Denmark that accept bitcoin (BTC). Furthermore, bitcoins and other major cryptocurrencies are increasingly being accepted as payments from tens of thousands of traders around the world, according to the blockchain analyst Larry Cermak.
