This is the first of four articles on the program and goals of Convergence – The Global Blockchain Congress. For more on the event, and to purchase a ticket, visit www.blockchainconvergence.com.
Convergence – the Global Blockchain Congress will hold its inaugural edition in Malaga, Spain next week.
Organised by the European Commission, the International Association for Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA), the European Union Blockchain Observatory & Forum, and Alastria, the national blockchain of Spain – and with over 150 speakers from around the world and some 80 keynotes, panels, fireside chats, roundtables and meetings – Convergence is set to become a major gathering of the global blockchain community.
That certainly has been our goal. From the outset, we have sought to organise the first truly “worldwide blockchain congress” and to bring other participants “a chance to take part in direct discussion with the movers and shapers of the blockchain industry, and thereby help define not just the future of blockchain but the next generation Internet and digital economy.”
We wanted to do this via a program that is both broad and deep, with high quality speakers and participants, a focus on important, big picture themes as well as key technical, regulatory and legal details, and with an emphasis on networking, collaborating, innovating and exploring a common vision for blockchain and the decentralised world.
Join us in Spain and you will enjoy a chance to hear from and take part in direct discussion with regulators and policy makers as well as other important stakeholders, and so enjoy a unique opportunity to interact with many of the people and organisations who will be influencing the future of blockchain.
