Block Explorer scours the globe for the best crypto conferences and events every month. In September, it’s all about London with at least five events taking place in the British capital. You’ll find a complete list of events at our Conference Schedule, but for now, let’s look at some of the best conferences this September.
London, September 26th
Blockchain Live has the most star-studded lineup of the month. Speakers include Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin (now founder of ConsenSys), Nick Szabo (who created smart contracts), representatives from Ripple and EOS, and a member of the European Parliament.
There are nine different “stages” to explore, including blockchain, C-suite, fintech, government, development, product, crypto, energy and creative. Your experience at the conference is entirely tailored to your profession, whether you’re a developer, investor, industry expert or public sector work.
Key speakers: Joseph Lubin (ConsenSys), Nick Szabo (smart contracts inventor) Brendan Blumer (Block.one), Michael Alexander (EOS), Eva Kaili (European Parliament)
Boston, September 13-14th
Token Fest is a huge networking event for anyone in the blockchain space. Entrepreneurs, developers, and CEOs are all welcome. Talking points include how to apply crypto economics to the world around us, how to crowdfund new tokens and the commercial use of blockchain.
Attendees include representatives from Ripple, Steemit, Ledger as well as Nike, Google and Facebook.
Key speakers: Jeremy Allaire (Circle), Jon Najarian (trader and member of NYSE, CBOE).
Digital Identity Summit
LA, September 12-14
The Digital Identity Summit is all about privacy, fraud and security. It takes a broader view across the financial industry, but expect plenty of discussion on blockchain technology. Ideal for business leaders and managers.
Key speakers: Rees Atlas (Coinbase), Kara Swisher (Recode).
London, September 25th
CryptoBlockCon is a one-day event aimed at bringing the best minds in blockchain together. The agenda focuses heavily on ICOs (from kickstarting a campaign to successful case studies). There are also some more technical demonstrations, such as building smarter smart contracts.
Don’t worry if you miss the September event. CryptoBlockCon is a global affair, with conferences coming up in Las Vegas in December and Los Angeles in April 2019. Finally, check out our interview with CryptoBlockCon co-founder CJ Smith.
Key speakers: Hartej Sawhney (Hosho), Jeremy Gardner (Blockchain Capital)
London, 28th September
This conference is for developers only. So if you want to get your geek on, talk coding and smart contracts, this is where you need to be. The conference is built around active workshops and insightful talks. It’s a relatively small event compared to some of the others on this list, but this is where the future of blockchain development is happening.
