Los Angeles, CA—January 19th, 2018 — The Cayman Islands – a trusted name and recognized harbor for political decentralization – will for the first time host d10e. This event is part of the leading conference series on the decentralization of the economy, and will take place from the 27th to the 30th of January 2018. The official co-host of the 15th global edition of d10e is the Cayman Tech City, part of Cayman Enterprise City’s special economic zone and thriving offshore tech community located in the Cayman Islands.
In the beautiful Western Caribbean, with all the benefits of a British territory, the Cayman Islands attracts businesses of all sizes and verticals seeking its famed economic advantages. The Cayman Islands host many of the industries driving global growth – from international industries, such as banking, e-commerce and technology – to the rapidly growing market of economically decentralized organizations, including fintech, initial coin offerings (ICO), blockchain, the sharing economy, and other disruptive business models.
The Cayman Islands’ existing legal framework provides the flexibility to allow technologies like Blockchain to flourish. The Electronic Transactions Law provides that framework, whereby documents and contracts shall not be denied legal effector validity, solely because it is in electronic form. The law effectively provides latitude for new technologies without requiring new legislation, enabling new products and services to be developed. The Cayman Islands also benefit from a Special Economic Zone Law (SEZ), set up by our co-host, Cayman Enterprise City Ltd. (“CEC”). This great combination of financial incentives, unique concessions, and tax benefits, available within a picturesque island paradise, offers the d10e conference the ultimate experience.
The cryptocurrency and blockchain space is constantly evolving, with investment trust at a premium. d10e is no longer just a conference for discovering the latest trends on blockchain and ICOs; it’s now become a facilitator of investments and an invaluable PR vehicle for the top three winners of each edition. Since the premier competition we organized, we’ve endeavored to create a fair and competitive environment for the visionaries spearheading the ICO world. By setting the highest standards for the application process while designing an ethical and balanced voting system, we have evolved as a leading voice in the industry.
Awards received by the winners of the ICO pitch competition also represent approval and validation in the eyes of blockchain investors. Those who pitch have the chance to win a third of the $100,000 investment pool prize provided by members of the Blockchain Investor Consortium (BIC). Moreover, d10e offers a vibrant networking experience for participants, so those who pitch may win the hearts (and wallets) of the judges and other investors at the conference. Even those who do not win may potentially secure even greater investments or life-changing opportunities.
Mike Costache, founder of the BIC, co-owner of d10e, and Managing Partner of KrowdMentor stated, “If you’d like to know why d10e is now positioned to be a game-changer in the space, join us at one of our upcoming events. I guarantee it will be well worth your time. When we hosted the sixth edition of d10e in Bucharest in February 2017, we turned the usual trade show style expectations upside down as we created an environment where there were things to do outside the conference venue by organizing VIP parties with crypto investors and exclusive cultural tours.”
We look forward to this new year in blockchain technology, and meeting you on this exciting journey. Join us at the 15th global edition of d10e in Cayman Islands January 27th – 30th, for networking, hearing world-renowned speakers, and being the first to learn about new ICOs. More information here.
