As has become evident in the first half of 2018, Malta is consolidating its position as the global blockchain hub, earning the title of ‘Blockchain Island’ in media circles following the relocation decision of two of the largest crypto exchanges around – Binance and OKEx, to name a few. Boasting over 5000 delegates, hundreds of investors, 100 speakers and 300 sponsors and exhibitors, the Malta Blockchain Summit promises to be a nuanced and momentous opportunity for global influencers and investors to network, forge new connections and discuss the potential applications of blockchain – reflecting the central role that Malta is establishing as the first regulated jurisdiction for all-things blockchain and crypto.
The summit is comprised of four conferences covering the field’s regulatory, marketing, affiliation and investments, tokenomics and cryptocurrencies, as well as fintech and blockchain for developers. To provide the best value proposition for exhibitors, blockchain developers and affiliates are invited to the Malta Blockchain Summit free of charge. The summit also includes a two-day Hackathon, an ICO Pitch, a buzzing expo floor, a Blockchain Awards Ceremony, and ends with an unwinding Crypto Cruise.
In effect, a melting pot of prominent global speakers is set to take part in this illustrious event, including prominent individuals such as blockchain Co-Inventor W. Scott Stornetta, Antivirus Legend John McAfee, TechCrunch-Editor Mike Butcher, Sunny Dhillon at Signia Ventures, LATTICE80-Founder Joe Seunghyun Cho, along with Yida Gao, Felix Petersen, Hartej Sawhney, Jimmy Zhong, Damir Bandalo, Li Jiang, Miko Matsumura, Loretta Joseph, Tim Rehder, Marc P. Bernegger, Ana Trbovich, Prashant Fonseka, Gordon Einstein, Alex Lightman, Eva Kaili, Sebastian Markowsky, Joseph Cuschieri, Philippe Chevry, Jon Matonis, Steve Tendon, and Ian Gauci, to name a few. The Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat, will inaugurate the regulatory conference.
