Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of BlockOn 2018 organised by Bahrain FinTech Bay on November 22nd, 2018. BlockOn is a Blockchain and Cryptocurrency platform for corporate incubation projects consisting of seminars, panels, keynotes and fireside chats accompanied by roundtables and demos to and from the Blockchain community.
Blockchain is a distributed public network that creates an immutable historical ledger of transaction in an efficient, transparent and secured way. It has the potential to revolutionize the way we look at the global finance economy as a whole, with its applications ranging from trading and payments, to security and legal ownership. It not only captures the attention of banks, but also exchanges, insurers and government who are looking into Blockchain to reshape daily operations, reduce costs and improve transparency.
BlockOn 2018 will be expecting more than 300 global Blockchain innovators and professionals of diverse backgrounds – including regulators, entrepreneurs, investors and financial industry executives.
The engagement topics revolve around Blockchain’s rising opportunities and challenges, regulation and collaboration, as well as its application in finance and beyond.
