While the bears continue to pound the markets into the ground the builders and innovators of crypto and blockchain soldier on. Binance is one of those industry leaders and it has recently announced a week long blockchain conference in Singapore to showcase the technology.
A Week Of Blockchain and Crypto Goodness
The first Binance Blockchain Week will run from 19th to 22nd of January 2019 at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands. According to the company announcement 2,000 attendees are expected from around the globe. The week will consist of two large-scale events over the four days, a two-day hackathon known as the Binance SAFU Hackathon, followed by the Binance Conference. According to the press release the event is expected to “Bring together industry-leading regulators, investors, academics, entrepreneurs, and technologists to discuss today’s blockchain ecosystem and encourage sustainable growth in the industry. The event will prime the international stage for a global exchange of the latest blockchain knowledge and expertise among high-profile figures in the space.”
Over 70 speakers including industry leaders, high-level executives, academics, and heads of state, are slated to appear at the Binance Conference. Eric van Miltenburg, Senior Vice President of Global Operations at Ripple, Justin Sun, Founder of TRON, Da Hongfei, Founder of NEO, Patrick Dai, Founder of Qtum, and of course Changpeng Zhao (CZ), Founder and CEO of Binance are among those taking to the stage.
“We are thrilled to host the first-ever Binance Blockchain Week in Singapore, the finance and technology hub of Asia. Gathering the most notable players and thought leaders in blockchain, this will be a defining event. We look forward to many thought-provoking discussions and debates on how we can further work together to move the industry forward,” CZ added.
The first Binance SAFU (Secured Assets For Users) Hackathon will also be held from the 19th to 20th of January with the aim of exploring innovative solutions to secure crypto assets.
