South Korea's largest cryptocurrency exchange Upbit will host a developer conference in September at Jeju Island, the company announced.
The 2018 developer update conference will last from 13 to 14 September under the slogan "Development Test," said Dunamu, the company that runs Ubpit and will be focused on promoting the latest blockchain technology.
More and more real services are being used that use blockchain, the company said, with growing interest in the developers who are at the center of these technologies.  Speakers include Steemit's founder and CEO, Ned Scott, Ontology founder Li Jun, OST CEO Jason Goldberg and Bittrex's co-founder and CEO, Bill Shihara. The founder of Upbit Song Chi-Hyung will also participate.
Programs will cover topics such as blockchain-based content platforms, scalability, stable tokens, smart and security contracts, cloud computing and peer-to-peer blockchain services, decentralized apps and token technology.
"UDC 2018 aims to become a developer-focused community platform where guests can meet practical knowledge and the latest blockchain trend," said Dunamu CEO Sirgoo Lee.
Dunamu is the subsidiary of the South Korean chat giant Kakao. The company manages Upbit and Kakao Stock, a mobile securities trading service.
Kakao also runs Ground X, its subsidiary blockchain, which is cooperating with the Seoul municipal government for social impact projects.
South Korea is the third largest cryptocurrency hub in the world behind the United States and Japan. The government is formulating a regulatory framework for blockchain to be announced as soon as possible at the end of the year.
