Our Blockchain Summit Global 2020 Presentation
Since 2018, we have held the Blockchain Summit event in Montevideo every September with a great call and very prominent speakers. The 3rd Edition has touched us in times of pandemic … and has made us redouble our creativity, our passion, and our enthusiasm.
And in addition to many new features, there has been a fantastic evolution. Our event has become mainly VIRTUAL, also adding a face-to-face modality that will be out of series and will include an updated health protocol.
We are also showing a “rebranding” that is part of our evolution. Now Blockchain Summit UY is… BLOCKCHAIN SUMMIT GLOBAL. With great ambition and vocation, the 3rd Edition 2020 will be a global event.
We can already confirm that on Thursday 3 and Friday 4 of September 2020 for the 3rd year in a row, from a leading TV studio, we will be presenting an incredible agenda with world-class SPEAKERS who will give fantastic conferences, unique workshops and will make up incredible panels.
Blockchain will be the big issue and will function as a trigger, also adding all the associated technologies that are generating current use cases, innovation, and evolution, on a direct path to the 4.0 Revolution.
During the event, they will talk to us about DEFI, FINTECH, CYBERSECURITY, STABLECOINS, and also about the LEGAL support of Blockchain initiatives. We will have the main platforms, the launch of new versions, active Mining projects, and a lot of action in relation to the main cryptocurrencies, their price, and opportunities from the perspective of the most prominent traders.
It will be an opportunity to listen to keynote presentations on developments, innovations, legislation, public policies, real use cases, and real success stories.
This year we have planned to hold the event in a leading TV studio, from where we will transmit in an agile way to everyone. Participants will be able to “network” in virtual meeting rooms and participate in AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions with the main speakers. Attendance in face-to-face mode will be limited to the seating capacity of the TV Studio and will have the participation of some Local speakers as well as special guests, with a catering service included, all within the framework of the current health protocol. (Subject to approval on starting date due to the pandemic.)
