Malta has become one of the most prominent blockchain and crypto hubs in the world, attracting some of the largest companies in the industry. Aptly known as the Blockchain Island, the European nation has led in enacting enabling regulation. And to top it all off, the country hosts one of the largest and most-eagerly anticipated events in the crypto and blockchain industry: the Malta AI and Blockchain Summit. The next installment is almost here, and it promises to be the best one yet.
Just to get a feel of how big the summit is; it had 8,500 attendees in 2018, with 300 exhibitors and 200 speakers. Some of the most prominent attendees last year included Sophia, the world’s first robot citizen, Malta Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, Abu Dhabi’s Royal Highness and more. The success of the event led the organizers to host two events, the first in May and now in November.
This year’s event promises to be grander, with the speakers being pooled from just about every field in the tech and finance industries. The speakers include Malcolm Booker, the Deloitte CEO; Pawel Sobkow, BitBay’s financial director; Bitfury’s CEO Valery Vavilov; and Marco Streng, the CEO of Genesis Mining, among others.
The event promises to have some of the best panel discussions in the industry. The attendees can expect “expert keynotes & tech influencers, interactive discussion and practical applications of today’s and tomorrow’s technologies.” It will also give the attendees the opportunity to interact with other blockchain and crypto enthusiasts from across the globe, with over 80 nationalities expected.
For those with excellent ideas of how blockchain technology can be applied to solve some of the challenges the world faces, this is an event you can’t afford to miss.
