An international blockchain conference changes its concept and becomes a Festival of Decentralized Technology.
BlockShow, an international blockchain conference, which will take place on November 14th – 15th at Marina Bay Sands Expo in Singapore, has reportedly changed its concept from a blockchain conference to become a Festival of Decentralized Technology. The event will include nine conferences: Investments & Startups, Development, Business, Gaming & DApps, Money, Trading, Regulations, Privacy & Security, and Marketing & PR.
The team notes that by expanding each topic to its conference, BlockShow strives to bring more innovative thought to the surface. Expertly curated programs for each agenda will engender an atmosphere in which everyone in the audience can get on the same page — spurring discussion and allowing for more rigorous exploration to take place.
The list of guests at BlockShow Festival 2019 includes Justin Sun, founder and CEO of Tron as well as CEO of BitTorrent; Richard Wang, a venture capitalist as well as partner at DFJDragon Fund/DraperDragon Fund; Mike Kayamori, co-founder and CEO of Quoine;
Cris Duy Tran, director of QRC Group and country head at Infinity Blockchain Ventures Malaysia; Charlie Shrem, business development advisor at Changelly as well as founding director at the Bitcoin Foundation; Ted Lin, Chief Growth Officer at Binance; Xinxi Wang, co-founder and director of the Litecoin Foundation, as well as founder and CEO of Coinut; and many others.
This year, the new format will allow top speakers to focus on each of the nine sectors and answer industry-trend questions. For instance, why is there such aversion to blockchain in public service, despite offering complete transparency and ensuring legitimacy in everything from voting to tax regulation? How do we work with legislators to push them toward blockchain adoption? What new ways of fighting scams exist in the era of crypto-inclusivity? And can we accelerate adoption by showing that the sector is self-regulated and inhibits malicious actors?

Every year, BlockShow hosts startup competitions, whose participants and winners — such as Bancor, a decentralized liquidity network; Status, a decentralized app startup; Shelf.Network, a decentralized auctioning platform; Electrify Asia, a retail electricity marketplace; and Humaniq, an Ethereum-based financial services app project — have raised more than US$1 billion combined.
In 2019, in the framework of the new Festival of Decentralized Technologies, BlockShow says it will initiate a bullish boost for all startups. It will include the competition EXP20, which will have startups battle it out to impress investors, each standing the chance to win significant support — both financial and otherwise. The team notes that the participants of the Startup Boost Contest will have an opportunity to get meetings with private investors, a stage performance, as well as tickets and exhibition booths.
Addy Crezee, founder and CEO of BlockShow, said, “With altruistic approach, by supporting each other, we can boost the blockchain industry and turn it bullish.”
Moreover, the BlockShow Festival of Decentralized Technology will announce new conferences covering other specific aspects of the blockchain industry in the coming weeks.
