This is a conference for those who want to get some hard blockchain facts from highly regarded experts in the cryptocurrency space and from established companies.
Topics include where to find good developers, how to educate teams on blockchain, how decentralisation will change the nature of business, potential solutions to the scaling problem, whether distributed ledger technology is a suitable IoT foundation, the distance to mass adoption, how investors evaluate companies and how to raise awareness of new projects.
This is a multi-layered event. One layer focuses on blockchain in gaming and how video games stand to be changed by the technology in the future. The second layer is oriented on the specifics of ERC721 standards for non-fungible tokens and how gaming might be one of the more immediate and promising applications of the system.
"Our mission is to find the best and brightest minds in blockchain, enrich their experience in the newest technologies, and help place them into the crypto-ecosystem," says the host, BLOCKLabs Incubator.
The monthly recurring Crypto Sydney event brings in some of most active talent in the space to give their view on the topics they know best and to present issues in cryptocurrency from different angles. It's often regarded as the best recurring event in Sydney's blockchain and cryptocurrency scene, and all around the place to be.
Each event brings highly regarded guest speakers, but as a monthly feature, it can be worth looking ahead for specific areas of interest.
This blockchain conference is aimed squarely at decision-makers, although all are welcome at the event. It aims to present an unvarnished take on the space, covering the good and the bad sides of cryptocurrency as well as cryptocurrency's problems and their solutions.
Along the way, it explores a variety of topics in the space with the help of a wide roster of speakers to bring expert insights to the two-day event.
