The first edition of the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit in November 2018 turned out to be a monumental success – no less than 8500 people attended the event. This year, the same team is throwing a massive show in May.
The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit has announced a stellar show for 2019. The highly anticipated show is expected to follow the monumental success of the November summit in 2018, which brought W. Scott Stornetta, John McAfee, the Winklevoss Twins and Sophia the Robot to Malta’s shores and took the scene by storm even in times of a burdensome bear market.
“I came to talk about the early work that we did, laying the foundations pre-Bitcoin for the blockchain. It is a little frenzied and very crowded. I think they succeeded a little too well in attracting people here,” said W. Scott Stornetta, known as the ‘Founding Father of Blockchain’, commenting upon the show in November 2018.
The next show taking place on May 22nd-24th of 2019 is themed around Social Impact, and is aimed at reigniting the Satoshi Vision for blockchain technology to advance social impact across societies through a truly decentralised ecosystem for transactions. The event is cordially inaugurated with a Social Impact Awards ceremony on the eve of the summit.
The unexpected success of last year’s show has turned the organisers’ eye towards expansion. For the show in May 2019, they have chosen Hilton as the venue. This also enables the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit to host a first class expo floor suitable for a truly global crowd of exhibitors. Eman Pulis, the Founder of the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit is eager to up the game:
“I wish to thank everyone who attended Malta in November and for the overwhelming feedback we received. The Blockchain community accepted me and my team as part of the family. I look forward to contribute and help drive this technology forward by doing what I love the most – events! This year, we are raising the bar with a stellar line-up of speakers and we expect an even larger crowd to attend our show.”
The speaker line up for May is far from filled but already feature top names within the industry such as Roger Ver, Tim Draper, Ben Goertzel of SingularityNET along with Sophia the Robot, making her second visit to the island. The Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and Junior Minister for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation, Silvio Schembri, will also speak at the event. With the quality recorded in 2018, attendees can put their expectations high for the second edition of the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit. This spring edition of the summit includes a lavish VIP dinner, networking drinks in the midst of the warm Mediterranean spring, an ICO Pitch and two conferences spanning over the 22nd-24th of May.
2018 was the year Malta cemented itself as The Blockchain Island with the launch of the Three Bills regulating blockchain and cryptocurrencies during the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit in November. In 2019, the Blockchain Island is moving beyond the hype. The Maltese Government will enact another world first: a Fourth Bill, giving a D.A.O. its own legal personality. In addition, a task force is also working around the clock on a set of incentives that will support businesses in Artificial Intelligence.
This is why the organisers of the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit has expanded their scope to invite stakeholders in AI, Big Data, IoT and Quantum Technology – to join the show and engage in riveting discussions about the world changing potential application of such technology. The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit is a landmark event that nobody in the field can afford to miss.

Ampleforth [AMPL] To Conduct First IEO on BitFinex and Ethfinex’s Blockchain Project Launch Platform, Tokinex, in June
Ampleforth’s whitepaper, co-authored by Manuel Ricon Cruz, a researcher at the Hoover Institute, introduces the Ampleforth protocol. Further context for understanding the implications of AMPL as a new type of synthetic commodity and economic theory is provided in the accompanying Red Book.
The appeal of digital assets like Bitcoin is that they are uncorrelated with traditional asset groups. But, among large-cap digital assets, there is a high degree of non-diversifiable risk and the price volatility of most cryptocurrencies mimic that of Bitcoin.
Evan Kuo, CEO, and founder of Ampleforth said,
“We see Amples as having a near-term utility that naturally dovetails into a much bigger vision, and I can’t wait to see it unfold. The Bitfinex and Ethfinex user communities are among the best in the industry, and we are excited to work alongside the Tokinex team for Amples’ exchange debut.”
Ampleforth’s protocol receives exchange-rate information from trusted oracles and propagates that to holders of Amples by proportionally increasing or decreasing the number of tokens each individual holds according to the magnitude of the exchange rate fluctuations over the previous 24 hrs.
For traders, these changes in the exchange rate and quantity translate into changes in Ample’s market capitalization. Ultimately, unique trader behavior in response to the protocol’s incentives is expected to produce an asset price with lower correlation to Bitcoin than other digital assets.
Jean-Louis van der Velde, CEO at Bitfinex, stated
“The Ampleforth project is fascinating to us with its refreshing vision to become a unique digital asset and serve as a potential future reserve currency. We believe it can provide a unique volatility profile, uncorrelated to other digital and traditional assets. This uncharted territory makes Ampleforth, and the team behind it, the perfect first project to list on Tokinex and we are excited to provide an opportunity for the community to be a part of it.”
Paul Veradittakit of Pantera Capital said,
“Ampleforth is interesting because there’s not another asset like it, so it will likely not be correlated with other large-cap cryptocurrencies. With more traders and enthusiasts entering the ecosystem since the last rise, there needs to be an option like AMPLs, which could reduce the risk for the entire space, and potentially attract more institutional interest.”
Ampleforth is a digital asset protocol for smart commodity-money funded by Brian Armstrong, True Ventures, Pantera Capital, and Slow Ventures. For more information, please visit our website.
Launched in May 2019, Tokinex is the IEO platform of Bitfinex and Ethfinex that brings fair opportunity to participate in curated token projects. It gives qualified participants the chance to contribute to pre-vetted token sales directly from their personal wallet through common crypto assets, and with no personal data or funds held by the exchange.
Tokinex uniquely does not require tokens to pay an upfront fee for listing and following a successful capital raise are subsequently listed on the two exchanges as permitted by applicable law.
