2018 US China Blockchain and Digital Currency Conference

This conference aims to get down to brass tacks with a diverse field of attendees from the full spectrum of cryptocurrency industries, including some of the more esoteric but important areas like mining operators and tax experts. This conference hosts a wide range of speakers, but might be more focused on creating a space for attendees to network with a wide range of professionals from the US and China, rather than get lectured.

Blockchain Conference Seattle 2018

This conference is a packed day that hits on ICOs, security tokens, keynotes from movers in the space and the opportunities and dangers opening up in cryptocurrency.

Mobile Payments Conference 2018

It's exactly what it sounds like and is a must for anyone in mobile payments.

Russia Blockchain Summit 2018

This is the Global Blockchain Foundation's Moscow event, which will continue its global tour in 2018.

Blockchain Technology Summit

During this summit, a diverse cross-industry set of speakers are illustrating how blockchain technology is shaping their plans for the future, and how they in turn intend to shape the future with blockchain technology.

If you're interested in any combination of blockchain plus specific industry, it might be worth a look.

Voice of Blockchain

This is an insufferably self-important-looking conference that seems to be focused on presenting blockchain fans as thought leaders who need to pass wisdom down to the unwashed masses and free them with the power of blockchain.

"Join over 100 Bloggers, Podcasters, and Youtubers the masses find when they first learn about blockchain. They will echo the message of the LEADERS," it promises.

Unwholesome vibes aside, it's presenting an undeniably solid line-up of speakers.

Blockchance Conference

This is a relaxed conference that seems to have gone above and beyond to attract representatives of a certain kind of project. Speakers include "Synth" of SkyCoin, the CEO of KODAKOne and the CEO and co-founder of VeganNation.

It's actually kind of impressive.

Unlocking Blockchain Africa 2018

This conference focuses on exploring the impact of blockchain technology in Africa. It's pulled together an impressive range of speakers from around the world to take a deep dive into the technology, starting from an introduction and moving onto applications and how-tos, all in one day.
