Wholesale Investor Advanced Technology and Crypto Convention

This conference is geared towards high net worth investors who want to better understand blockchain, cryptocurrency and other advanced areas as both a technology and a novel asset class.

It will feature live presentations from up to 30 of Australasia's emerging advanced tech and crypto companies, Q&A sessions with cryptocurrency fund managers of the Asia Pacific region, discussion of how the latest technology trends are shaping the future, and explorations of how different investors are approaching advanced technologies and the fresh market opportunities they are bringing.

New York Fintech Week

Another instalment of the long-running and widely known Fintech Week series of events which started in London in 2014.

The first day is focused on company introductions and networking opportunities, while the second starts delving into the technology through keynotes and other presentations.

The third will give the floor to high profile projects and VC funds, for up-close explorations of how they are working in fintech, the importance of data and identity, and a look ahead at the future of fintech from 2020 onwards.


This Discon event is about going "beyond the hype" and looking more closely at the real impacts of blockchain and cryptocurrency, and distributed technology in general. It approaches these issues from a head-on technical and research perspective, as well as through the lens of digital currency culture.

Expect panels, music, lively discussions and a focus on the technology and the future. In contrast to many other events, Discon is committed to ensuring that the marketing pitches are kept to a minimum, as far as possible at least, and that the focus is attendee enjoyment and education.

International Blockchain Congress

A high profile event co-hosted by NITI Aayog, and attracting a diverse and high profile range of cross-disciplinary speakers to better approach the blockchain from all angles. Expect discussion of the path to real world adoption, key insights on regulatory challenges and other hurdles, a look at up-and-coming Indian blockchain tech firms and discussions with prominent investors in cryptocurrency and blockchain.
