VEGAS BLOCKCHAIN WEEK 2019 WILL BRING THOUSANDS OF DIGITAL CURRENCY AND BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY PROFESSIONALS INTO THE HEART OF THE LAS VEGAS STRIP FOR A MULTITUDE OF EVENTS AND EXPERIENCES.
THIS YEAR, WCC’S 2ND ANNUAL BLOCKCHAIN AND DIGITAL CURRENCY EVENT TAKES OVER TWO LEVELS OF THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS MEETING SPACE.
WCC WILL HOST MULTIPLE TRACKS ON 4 STAGES WITH OVER 125 HAND-PICKED SPEAKERS, INCLUDING A MAIN CONFERENCE, MULTIPLE BLOCKCHAIN DEVELOPER CONFERENCE, MINING CONFERENCE, EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS, ALLOCATION LOUNGE, NETWORKING EVENTS AND MORE…
THOUGHT LEADERS FROM NOTABLE COMPANIES WILL DESCEND ON LAS VEGAS TO DISCUSS THE IMPLEMENTATION AND REAL-WORLD USE CASES OF BLOCKCHAIN, DIGITAL CURRENCY, AND THE MANY WAYS OUR EMERGING TECHNOLOGY IS DISRUPTING GLOBAL ENTERPRISES. TOPICS OF DISCUSSION WILL FOCUS ON DISTRIBUTED LEDGER TECHNOLOGY, BLOCKCHAIN USE CASES, DIGITIZED ASSETS, DISRUPTION, AND DEVELOPMENTS IN THE ADOPTION OF DIGITAL CURRENCY. WHAT PROBLEMS ARE WE AIMING TO SOLVE? WHAT ENTERPRISE COMPANIES ARE LEADING THE CHARGE? HOW ARE MAJOR FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS ADAPTING? WHAT FORMS OF ADOPTION WILL WE SEE IN 2019 AND 2020?
What is your goal/purpose in hosting this event?
Our primary focus is to deliver high quality, relevant content to blockchain and digital currency enthusiasts in an upscale atmosphere. We expect everyone that attends our events to leave with something valuable such as new relationships, industry knowledge, partnerships or hands on education they can put to use.
What makes your event special and sets it apart from other events of its kind?
I would say quality and attention to detail. We do not allow companies to pay to speak on our stages or pitch products. This year we will have 4 stages with over 125 carefully selected speakers. The content is purposeful and driven by what’s happening right now in this ecosystem. People attend WCC because it’s the one event each year where they can get valuable insight without the sales pitch. It’s where major announcements are made and companies come to showcase what they’ve been working on all year.
What part of your event are you most excited about bringing to attendees?
This year we’re launching WCC DEV CON, a first of its kind, multiple blockchain developer conference. So many developer conferences are blockchain centric, meaning they only focus on one blockchain. We wanted to create an environment that encompassed all blockchains that want to participate. Everyone is welcome and we encourage blockchains to work together to reduce tribalism amongst each other. We all need to work together to solve problems and overcome challenges. We figured the best way to do it would be to get everyone in the same room for three days and share ideas, work on solutions and overcome challenges.
Who can attendees expect to hear/see while at your event?
We have a long list of speakers that really bring something for everyone. If you’re into trading you may want to check out Charlie Shrem, Joe McCann, Jon Najarian and several others during the Crypto.IQ Trading Event. If you’re looking for insight on the regulatory environment you’ll be interested in sessions with Jeff Weninger, Adam Healy, Sanja Davidovic and Caitlin Long amongst others. Developers will look forward to hear from speakers like Brendan Eich, Brian Behlendorf and Tron Black. Anyone interested in mining will get two jam packed days of content from some of the most successful pioneers in the space. The list goes on and on, but I can assure you there will be no disappointment if you came for content!
What makes this event different from events you’ve hosted in the past?
We’ve really expanded this year to lock arms with some of the most notable event organizers in the space. Vegas Blockchain Week will host 15 events over 7 days. Some of the most notable is Michael Terpin who brings his 5th CoinAgenda Global, Charlie Shrem with his Crypto.IQ Trading Event and Charlie Lee and the Litecoin Foundation are hosting their second annual Litecoin Summit. We also have several fun events happening including our Ultra VIP Topgolf Networking Event, our first-ever Lightning Cup Series eSports Event, and our annual CryptOween party. There really is something for everyone. It’s going to be an incredible week to be in Vegas for anyone that’s in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space.
