fintech digital congress warsaw poland

The fast development of digitalization, advancement of technology, and with this, the increased requirements of digital clients, have influenced the next edition of the FinTech Digital Congress.

On the 23-24 November 2017 at Hotel Westin in Warsaw, the third edition of the Congress will be directed to representatives of the financial sector, but also start-ups and investors who are interested in the fintech branch, as well as implementation of future technology in financial services.

The agenda of the event contains topics relating to the newest trends in the fintech branch, as well as the areas of their activity in the CEE. During the two days of the Congress, topics will be concerning cybersecurity, blockchain, RegTech, PSD2, fintech transactions and ICO, AI, big data and machine learning. What benefits will come from the fintech branch? How to humanize technology? Those questions, and more, will be answered by the speakers during the third edition of the FinTech Digital Congress.

  • Zbigniew Jagiełło, Honorary Chairman of the Advisory Board, President of the Management Board, PKO Bank Polski

bitcoin super conference

The Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Blockchain Super Conference is organized by Richard Jacobs, publisher of the Future Tech Podcast and former manager of the official podcast. Headline speakers include: Tim Draper, the Billionaire venture capitalist, Erik Voorhees, one of the world’s most pre-eminent Bitcoin entrepreneurs, Charlie Shrem, founder of the Bitcoin Foundation, and more than fifty other thought leaders and respected players in the blockchain industry.

“Last time we saw a mega-growth industry like this, it was social media”, said Mr. Jacobs. “But most ordinary folks – the small guy – we couldn’t get in on the opportunity until the industry was already past its growth phase, when investors had already made their fortunes and were now offloading Facebook shares onto the public at inflated prices. What’s exciting about the blockchain revolution is that, this time around, it’s open to anyone who’s smart enough to see where cryptocurrency is heading.”

The Super Conference covers three days and includes an optional “beginners track” – a crash course for those who are new to cryptocurrency and blockchain and need to understand the industry quickly.

The main conference will feature more than fifty headline talks, which all converge around the following question: what’s the best way for regular, normal people to invest in the blockchain revolution and reap handsome profits as the technology enters the mainstream next year?

As well as the main conference and the beginners track, there will also be a complimentary hackathon for kids, teens, and young adults, providing them with the perfect opportunity to gain valuable experience in entrepreneurship, build their confidence, make new friends, and have a blast.

Registration for the Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Blockchain Super Conference is still open, though tickets are selling out faster than the organisers anticipated. Attendees who register before the end of October will benefit from a special “Early Adopter” rate and a complimentary Super Conference t-shirt.

Lorien Gamaroff, a well-known thought leader and speaker in the South African blockchain community, will be the Master of Ceremonies at the 4th annual Blockchain Africa Conference. The conference is hosted by Bitcoin Events Pty Ltd and takes place in Johannesburg on 8-9 March 2018.

As South Africa’s foremost blockchain expert, Lorien has been invited to speak all over the world on cryptocurrencies and distributed ledgers, and their benefits for emerging economies. He has addressed the IMF, World Bank, FBI, Commonwealth Secretariat, South African Reserve Bank, and a host of banking professionals and attorney generals.

Interest in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology has been growing rapidly in the last few years. This is especially true in emerging economies such as those in Africa, Asia and South America. The potential for these technologies to create new opportunities and solve the problems of legacy institutions is seemingly boundless. Multiple incumbents are threatened with disintermediation if the promises touted by pundits, specifically within but by no means limited to the financial services industry and central banking itself, hold true. With all this unbridled optimism it is important to understand these innovations and to what purpose they may serve. The annual South African Blockchain Conference serves an important role in highlighting those companies and thought leaders that have demonstrated success in delivering progressive solutions in this space. It brings together many of the minds that are at the forefront of these vital technologies and that form a pillar of the 4th Industrial Revolution. It is unmissable for those who want to be prepared and benefit from it.” – Lorien Gamaroff

Andrew Keys is the first confirmed speaker for the 2018 Blockchain Africa Conference. Andrew is Head of Global Business Development at ConsenSys and Co-founder of ConsenSys Capita. ConsenSys is the largest organisation in the world dedicated to Ethereum and the Web 3.0. It’s a venture production studio building decentralised applications and various developer and end-user tools for blockchain ecosystems, primarily focused on Ethereum. Andrew will be speaking about the New York based blockchain software technology company’s latest projects.

At the 2017 Blockchain Africa Conference, Mr Andreas M. Antonopoulos, a well-known and highly respected authority in the digital currency and blockchain space, was the keynote speaker while tech giant SAP was one of the premier sponsors for the conference.

Local and international speakers discuss use cases in cloud storage, smart contracts, Blockchain-as-a-Service, payments such as remittances, micro payments, settlements and clearing, record keeping, audit trails, identity, intellectual property, ownership and supply chain management. The 2018 conference will address requested topics around performance and scalability of the blockchain, and challenges that regulators face with this technology.

The blockchain unlocks new opportunities in Africa, and offers advancements and innovation in various fields. Just this month, Pick ‘n Pay, one of SA’s largest retailers, successfully conducted a bitcoin payment trial at its head office’s canteen store in Cape Town. Furthermore, South Africa’s largest financial institutions have set up the South African Blockchain Financial Consortium, with the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) and Financial Services Board (FSB) participating in observer roles. This is a positive step towards promoting this technology to institutions – from government to financial and non-financial industries. It potentially reduces the existing lag between innovation and regulation.

Early Bird conference tickets are available until 30 September 2017. Standard ticket sales open on 1 October 2017. Groups of 10 or more receive 10% off the standard ticket price. A limited number of start-up tickets are available and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

ico event

In October, London will host the major conference, ICO Event London 2017, dedicated to a popular investment generation tool called Initial Coin Offering.
The event will involve blockchain and cryptocurrency experts, venture investors, lawyers and startup founders, raising a great startup capital due to the ICO.

ICO Event London 2017

ICO Event London 2017 is one of the first major events dedicated to the new investment method. Not coincidentally, London has been selected to host this event: it is a center of investments and financial hub with a plenty of young companies.

Analysts call the UK a highly active state on the cryptocurrency and ICO market. One has established here a regulatory environment for testing fintech projects, while the blockchain potential is officially recognized by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

However, legislation in this sector is still far cry from perfection, and startup founders, planning to launch the ICO, should consult lawyers. According to Smile-Expo, an organizer known by its Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference network, the event will be useful both in the context of ICO implementation and from a perspective of investors. The platform will allow to establish a dialogue between successful project teams and to conduct an analysis of mistakes. Experts will tell the audience about legal details and factors that should be taking into account while choosing where to invest.

Guests will be able not only to talk to speakers but also to attend the exhibition area, presenting services related with the ICO implementation, cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Exhibitors will include IT developers, cryptocurrency exchanges, investment platforms and payment systems.
