Philadelphia (Sept. 26, 2018) – Blockchain World Conference South (BWC South), a major innovator in blockchain education conferences, is hosting more than 60 industry powerhouses, including bitcoin pioneer and keynote speaker Brock Pierce and Overstock.com CEO Dr. Patrick Byrne, in a four-day series of panels designed to deliver blockchain content reflecting this new, disruptive and constantly-evolving technology.
Thousands of high-level investors and thought leaders in cryptocurrency are expected to attend the four-day conference at the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida, from Dec. 2-5. Speakers also will include
Neil Patel, renowned marketer and authority on crypto advertising; and Michelle Gitlitz, an attorney at Blank Rome and founder of her firm’s Blockchain Technology and Digital Currencies Group.
Mahesh Chand, the CEO of Mindcracker, Inc., will preside over the first-ever Blockchain Bootcamp. The bootcamp will provide participants new to the technology with an introductory course on the basics of blockchain coding – specifically how to build real-world blockchain applications and smart contracts.
With more than 30 panels and related presentations, BWC South will feature more keynotes from respected industry leaders and heralded speakers than any previous conference.
“Our goal is to communicate the latest and most significant information as it relates to blockchain and cryptocurrency to push these cutting-edge technologies closer to mainstream adoption,” BWC South founder and CEO Eric Cohen said.
“In fact, this week’s announcement by Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club to require some of its fresh food vendors to adopt the technology by September 2019 demonstrates just how entrenched blockchain technology will be in our day-to-day lives, and just how quickly it’s happening.”
Cohen added that the art industry is another sector that stands to benefit immediately from blockchain technology. The December conference will be held in tandem with the international show Art Basel, taking place in Miami Beach Dec. 6-9. BWC South will provide a place for thousands of Art Basel attendees to interact with blockchain authorities and learn about the applications that are specific to the art community. “There’s been a great deal of talk about blockchain’s impact on the art world, and especially the security the technology offers. Now collectors and dealers will be able to learn how blockchain can be good for their bottom lines and transformative to their businesses,” Cohen said.
Also new to BWC will be a women’s luncheon with multiple co-founders and chief executive officers in blockchain and cryptocurrency participating in the event. Additional events include a blockchain legal and regulatory townhall meeting; a second-ever all-crypto poker tournament featuring a cash prize of $10,000; a yacht tour bound for the Miami Waterfront; and the first-ever blockchain industry golf outing.
