The World Blockchain Forum Returns to London Bigger and Better Than Ever
World Blockchain Forum has been instrumental in the raising of over $6.3 Billion dollars this year through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and Security Token Offerings (STOs). Keynote provided the platform for Ethereum to launch in 2014, and continues to be the platform where the strongest and most lucrative companies in the world go to launch their projects. As security tokens begin to unlock a further trillion dollars in capital markets, the World Blockchain Forum returns to London, bigger and better than ever.
This industry is changing. Prices continue to fluctuate wildly, and cryptocurrency is feeling the effects of being in the global limelight. Massive raises, coupled with increasing regulation, is turning the industry on its head. This is no longer an industry for the few early adopters, it is a place for everyone, and it’s therefore becoming competitive.
As the longest running cryptocurrency and blockchain event in the industry, we are acutely aware of this monumental shift in in thinking, from global industries and companies who want to be part of this future changing technology
In the words of Moe Levin, Founder and CEO of Keynote, “if you are not participating now you will be left behind.”
It’s no longer a conversation about the potential of the technology; that is certain. The conversation is now about the magnitude of impact the technology will have on the evolution of humanity. This is becoming a scalable, viable, non-negotiable technology.
The promise of blockchain technology is expanding at breakneck speed and is set to shape the future economy. In every boardroom in every Fortune 500 company in the world, in big red letters, underlined, is the word Blockchain. Not having a blockchain strategy in 2018 is like not having an internet strategy in 1999. The world is being disrupted fast.
Our speaker list includes the inventor of digital cash, the founder of Salesforce, visionaries and entrepreneurs alike, sharing the stage with government officials and global investors.
