The year 2019 ended with so much to look forward to in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry – stretching from regulatory uncertainties, unpredictable cryptocurrency market situations, government digital currencies, and all the way to what seems like an adoption-limbo in the industry. And as it appears, this decade-long development of blockchain technology continues to morph into a behemoth-like industry.
As a tradition, one way to get the word around on what blockchain is, and how to leverage its potential, is through information sharing and dissemination at blockchain conferences — and 2019 had quite a number of them. However, as packed as this year is, one blockchain event enthusiasts should be excited about this year is Chain2020, launched as a series of educational conferences to bolster the blockchain knowledgebase in Asia.
An Event of a Lifetime?
The buzz around Chain2020 is that it promises to be worthwhile as industry participants already numbering over 10,000 people from around the world have shown interest in attending the conference which is slated to hold on the 15th of January 2020 at the AsiaWorld-Expo Exhibition Center, Hong Kong.
The one-day event will see a gathering of 35 of the world’s most famous and brightest minds including key industry leaders as well as experts from a variety of real-world business, finance, media, technology, and economic fields as well as blockchain evangelists to participate in knowledge sharing on subjects such as: Blockchain Technology, Future of Money, Future of FinTech, and AI & Big Data. Some of the notable keynote speakers lined up to attend include:
- Zoran Djikanovic, Ph.D., Professor of Economics at UDG, author of several papers on regulation and market infrastructure development.
- Susan Oh, recipient of The Quantum Impact Award in partnership with the UN General Assembly as one of the Top Ten Frontier Women in Digital.
- Richard Chen, a technologist with vast experience in successfully building internet applications, big data, and AI and blockchain technologies.
- Dinis Guarda, author, academic, influencer, serial entrepreneur and leader in 4IR, AI, Fintech, digital transformation and Blockchain.
- Susanne Tarkowski Tempelhof, award-winning entrepreneur, a crypto activist, and writer working in frontier environments.
- Barbara Bickham, Managing Partner at Women’s Innovation Fund Accelerator, Founder & CTO at Trailyn Ventures, putting companies on the Blockchain, and Female CTO of the Year Nominee, 2019 by Women in IT Awards.
- Henri Arslanian, the PwC Global Crypto Leader and Asia FinTech Leader, the Chairman of the FinTech Association of Hong Kong and an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Hong Kong where he teaches the first FinTech university course in Asia.
- Sophia, Hanson Robotics’ latest human-like robot, created by combining innovations in science, engineering, and artistry, used for research as part of the Loving AI project, which seeks to understand how robots can adapt to users’ needs through intra- and interpersonal development.
Keynote addresses and Panel discussions will feature a buffet of interesting topics related to blockchain adoption around the globe; these include the long-awaited Ethereum 2.0 development and its impact on the Asian continent, trending crypto activities globally, blockchain and smart contracts in government and the public sector, the enabling financial freedom of cryptocurrencies, and much more.
Free Tickets for All
Unlike most of the blockchain conferences held so far around the globe, the best edge of Chain2020 yet is the free cost of attendance to all, making it cost-effective and as well lowering the entry barrier into blockchain education and adoption.
Another remarkable opportunity being conferred is the likely super-massive networking opportunity considering that among the host of 10,000 participants, there should be blockchain developers, researchers, startups, and prospective investors.
While pondering on the complexity of the blockchain and its transformative agenda, the one notable flop has always been in the area of adoption. Since its emergence, there exists a growing knowledge pool of blockchain concepts and its relatedness to real-world economy to help scale up adoption through education and inventiveness.
Chain2020 has made it its mission to drive the frontier of comprehensive source of blockchain knowledge to enhance mass adoption in Asia and possibly its environs. In the process, it aims to create connections and partnerships that will have a long-lasting impact on the industry.
The event seeks to attract prospects from within the Asian region through series of conferences which is expected to help bolster awareness and entice the locals to adopt cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, with an aim to set Asia on the map as a reputable blockchain hub.
