The 4th World Blockchain Forum is coming to New York City in November and will be televised on mainstream TV networks including NASDAQ, NETFLIX, and APPLE TV.
The WBF is the second mammoth crypto event to come to New York this year after the Consensus event in the summer. The latest of the new wave of crypto conferences may not offer the glamour of the Futurama Summit in Dubai, with its desert convoys, star-studded yacht party, a bar to drown the sorrows of the most discerning drinkers, fleets of helicopters, hot air balloons, and a massive firework extravaganza. It may lack the Lambos and the hip-hop artists of New York’s latest event, but its founder Zhao Sheng clearly sees such gatherings as enriching the industry and therefore, entirely relevant to its future, he said:
“We are witnessing an unprecedented digital migration of wealth onto blockchains of various forms so we need to start working towards a global blockchain industry consensus. And the best way to achieve consensus is to gather all stakeholders together within an ecosystem founded on consensus, which is why we organize the World Blockchain Forum.”
The WBF planned for the 8/9 November will include a TV event, a hackathon, a job fair, and presentations and panel discussions featuring leading innovators from across the cryptocurrency industry with the organizers inviting crypto skeptics to join the event and express their concerns to those industry experts in the know.
So far, Zhao Sheng, who promises that this will be the blockchain event of 2018, is expecting a range of well-known speakers at the event, including Celsius Network Founder & CEO Alex Mashinsky, Agentic Group Founder Rik Willard and Everipedia Founder Mahbod Moghadam. The organizers have said that they wish to bridge “the Eastern and Western worlds in an interactive setting,” adding that:
“The conference will discuss the current state and future prospects of the blockchain, including trends, opportunities, challenges, regulations and their long-term implications.”
More than 2,500 people are expected to be in attendance, to include representatives of 150+ companies and 200+ speakers who are experts from blockchain finance, cryptocurrency, token economics and consensus, Ethereum apps, the EOS ecosystem, the future of crypto, and AI trading.
