Our goal is Building Chicago to be the Blockchain Capital of the World. To help accomplish this goal, we have decided to host an international scale blockchain conference.
We see a problem with the ICO boom that started in 2017. Not only are the products sometimes scams, but the conferences have been as well. They routinely charge the attendees ridiculous amounts to see speakers who are paying to pitch. This lacks the quality of conversation that we need to push this technology and ecosystem forward.
Voice of Blockchain — #voiceofblockchain
August 24th & 25th in Chicago at Navy Pier
4,000+ attendees — 21 break out rooms — 2 stages including a megastage seating 4,000 to hear our headliners shape the Voice of Blockchain.
