Malta on best track to become a blockchain hub
With the announcement of Binance’s relocation to Malta, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, it becomes increasingly clear that Malta is on the best track to become a blockchain hub.
This is also evident from the prominence of the first Malta Blockchain Summit, set to take place at Intercontinental in St Julian’s in November 2018. The summit will cover four conferences and is expected to attract no less than 4000 delegates, 100 speakers and 150 sponsors and exhibitors from prominent players in within blockchain and DLT.
Inspired by the recent initiation of Malta’s Virtual Currency Act, the Malta Blockchain Summit will be held for the first time this year on the 1st to 2nd November at the Malta InterContinental in St Julian’s.
The summit is comprised of four conferences covering the field’s government and regulation, marketing and affiliation, fintech, tokenomics and cryptocurrencies, and blockchain for developers.
This week, it was confirmed that serial-entrepreneur and Co-Founder of Kamibox, Christopher Obereder, will join the conference as a keynote speaker. Obereder is on the Forbes 30 under 30 for a number of successful ventures in gaming, social media and communications.
Boasting over 4000 delegates, 100 speakers and 150 sponsors and exhibitors, the Malta Blockchain Summit promises to be an innovative and momentous opportunity for global influencers to network, forge new connections and debate the potential applications of blockchain across a myriad of industries such as health, entertainment, government, and banking.
“I wish to welcome every blockchain enthusiast to the Malta Blockchain Summit, a melting pot for global influencers in technology, civil society, democracy promotion and innovation. Expect riveting discussion about the world-changing potential applications of blockchain across multiple verticals, including, but not limited to health, entertainment, government, banking, payments and fintech, and more,” says Eman Pulis, Managing Director of the Malta Blockchain Summit.
An illustrious melting pot of global speakers has already been confirmed to take part, including prominent individuals such as: Carla Maree Vella, Eva Kaili, Kohei Kurihara, Max Krupyshev, Gordon Einstein, Primož Kordež, Joseph Cuschieri, Adryenn Ashley, Tugce Ergul, Karl Schranz, Pavel Kravchenko, Miko Matsumura, and Anatoliy Knyazev. The Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat, will also speak at one of the conferences.
With the announcement of the world’s largest crypto exchange, Binance’s relocation, to Malta, it is increasingly evident that the island is on the best track to become a centre of excellence for emerging blockchain and DLT.
