The picturesque seaside community of Saint Julians is the fitting backdrop for the Intercontinental Malta Blockchain Summit opening on 1st November 2018, culminating on the 3rd. The resort of Saint Julians, being the biggest and liveliest holiday area in Malta, sets the tone for the importance of the Summit as a crucial step in organizing the Digital Ledger Technology (DLT) community and paving a path for regulation of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) in the future ahead.
Hon. Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta as one of the keynote speakers, enthuses “I look forward to meeting delegates to strengthen our ongoing efforts in making Malta the Blockchain Island.”
The Malta Blockchain Summit continues to raise the bar with the legendary John McAfee confirmed as a top speaker for the November show. John McAfee, the famous British-American programmer, and businessman will lend prestige to the proceedings when he inaugurates the cryptocurrencies conference with a keynote speech.
Tech sectors, particularly AI, Big Data, Quantum Computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) are predicted to greatly benefit from the Summit. A crowd of 5000 guests is also anticipated and even now, speakers and project presenters are gearing up for the “explosive but constructive fray”. An ICO Pitch is an interesting feature of the Event where delegates explain their product and unique importance in the blossoming Blockchain industry. An open forum following each presentation promises to be a lively way of determining the validity of concepts.
All projects conceptualized with the end goal of decentralization of data are welcome. A Blockchain Hackathon will also be held with generous prizes for the winners. The contestants can enter with teams of 6 to 8 members, enter individually or let the hosts pick random team members for them. Applications for the Hackathon are accepted until 15th September 2018.
Those interested to join the Pre-Summit Program can pre-register the night before 1st November 2018, thus beating the lines and surfing their way through the crowds. If you haven’t been to the website, then rush over to the official website: http://maltablockchainsummit.com/.
