Steve Wozniak crypto invest summit

Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak might have called blockchain a “bubble” earlier this year, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a fan of the technology. In fact, he referred to Bitcoin as “just amazing” and cites Ethereum as one project that will live on beyond the hype.

Wozniak has since announced his involvement in a blockchain company. Though he was quick to explain that it was not an ICO, but an investment company working on real estate and other blockchain projects.

Steve Wozniak is now scheduled to speak at Crypto Invest Summit (CIS) which kicks off October 22nd in Los Angeles.

Block Explorer is proud to work alongside CIS as a media partner. For more details on the Crypto Invest Summit, and other upcoming events, please see our Conference Schedule calendar.

BLOCKCHAIN COMMUNITY BANDS TOGETHER TO LAUNCH THE FIRST-EVER LOS ANGELES BLOCKCHAIN WEEK

The West Coast’s largest crypto conference bands together with other local organizers, universities, entrepreneurs and investors to connect global blockchain community.

LOS ANGELES, CA, September 13, 2018 — Crypto Invest Summit, StartEngine Summit, Women of Crypto, Expert Dojo, UCLA, and USC have come together to announce Los Angeles’ first Blockchain Week happening on October 19th-25th. They are offering a pass that gives access to ALL official LA Blockchain Week events at one low price at LABlockchainWeek.org.

In a joint statement, Alon Goren and Josef Holm, founders of Crypto Invest Summit and early-stage investment fund GHV said, “Los Angeles is one of the world’s top blockchain and crypto eco-systems. Our goal has always been to bring the best deals in the world to our investors and introduce the best entrepreneurs in LA to investors from around the world. Creating a week-long festival-like environment gives even more incentive for the world to come and join us.”

Every Crypto Invest Summit at the Los Angeles Convention Center, thousands of investors and entrepreneurs from around the world flock to Los Angeles to meet and make deals. This time around, for their October event, Goren and Holm met with other local event organizers, entrepreneurs, investors and educators and in a truly collaborative fashion, decided to plan a whole week’s worth of conferences and activities related to blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Adam Levy, Co-President of USC’s Trojan Blockchain Society, mentions, “It’s great to see everyone cross-collaborate with each other and the overwhelming passion for contributing to Los Angeles’s innovation footprint. LA Blockchain Week is bound to be one of the most informative weeks our community has ever encountered in this space.” Howard Marks, CEO of StartEngine Summit, added, “Los Angeles Blockchain Week will be a major event for the crypto marketplace bringing together all of the leaders from around the world.”

When it comes to blockchain and cryptocurrencies, startups and entrepreneurs are not the only players in the space, as educational institutions and academic researchers inspire much of the action. UCLA and USC both have blockchain organizations that are partners in LA Blockchain Week.

“Blockchain at UCLA is excited to join LA’s inaugural Blockchain Week,” said Veronica Reynolds, Co-founder of Blockchain at UCLA. “Blockchain at UCLA strives to provide high-quality education and networking opportunities to students, and undertakes research and consulting work, so we can’t think of a better way to continue developing our community than by participating in this ground-breaking citywide collaboration of blockchain professionals.”

“We envision USC at the forefront of blockchain tech, so we couldn’t be more thrilled to promote education in this space even further by partnering with LA Blockchain Week,” said Daniel Aghachi, Founder and Co-President of Trojan Blockchain Society. “Trojan Blockchain Society encourages adoption through collaboration, therefore partnering with these high-impact series of events to ensure our community receives quality content and the best career development opportunities is a no-brainer,” added Adam Levy, Co-President of Trojan Blockchain Society.

Some of LA Blockchain Week’s incredible speaker lineup includes Steve Wozniak from Apple, investor Tim Draper, Rodney Sampson from Opportunity Hub, Crystal Rose from Sense, Former SEC Chairman Christopher Cox, Nadia Hewitt from World Economic Forum, David Bleznak from Totle, Amanda Gutterman from ConsenSys, and Matt Leisin from Bloomberg.
