NEXT BLOCK’s Second Blockchain Conference in Sofia Was a Roaring Success
NEXT BLOCK Conference Sofia 2.0, a premier blockchain event organized by Krypton Events took place in Rainbow Plaza Sofia on April 12, 2019.
The conference was devoted to the future of securities and blockchain technologies and gathered over 200 participants from 16 countries.
Leading experts, crypto influencers, and executives of promising startups discussed industry issues, ranging from building successful startups to the role of stablecoins in cryptocurrency mass adoption.
Giacomo Arcaro ICO/STO Advisor and founder of Black Marketing Guru delivered a keynote speech on “How to get Millions for your Startup” and gave a piece of advice to CEOs of promising blockchain project:
“Hack it until you make it. Product is not the key factor anymore and content strategy comes along with a good marketing campaign, that’s why hiring a growth hacking and think out of the box is fundamental.”
Meanwhile, Herbert Rafael Sim from TheBitcoinMan, Broctagon FinTech took part in a session “Are Stablecoins Key to Crypto Adoption?”:
“Legacy asset trading tools create a user experience that is rife with inefficiencies - single-asset wallets, significant capital lock-up, and generally cumbersome asset management processes. And when it comes to cryptocurrency, these problems are magnified in the current state of trading platforms”, he stated.
“We seek to radically disrupt the traditional brokerage space through liquidity aggregation technology that allows simpler reconciliation with compliance tools, increased transactional throughput, and overall improvement in efficiency in end-to-end processes. We’re incredibly excited to share what we have in store for the entire crypto community,” he added.
At NEXT BLOCK the participants enjoyed speeches from such industry experts as Eran Tirer, (Founder & CEO, Ledgertech AG), Yasen Yankov (Engineering Manager at Paysafe Group), Tony Evans (Co-Founder of FGC Group), Silvan Jongerius, (Managing Partner & DPO at TechGDPR, Founder at Berchain.com), Marco Calicchia (Founder and CEO of Mazee), Mitchell Eaglstein (Co-Founder & CEO of FDCTech, Inc.), Pavlo Tanasyuk (Founder of Spacebit and CEO of BlockVerify), Ramón Ferraz (CEO of 2gether) among others.
In the course of the discussions the participants came up with the following key conclusions:
- Tokens are transforming into the next generation of regulated securities; they are characterized by similar risks and benefits as the traditional financial markets in the latter half of the 20th century
- Stablecoins can create use cases in countries with unstable economies and thus promote mass adoption
- While the boom in the industry is over, there are projects with successful utility tokens as VeganNation and Sirin Labs
- The winner of the battle between decentralized and centralized approach will define the future development of blockchain industry.
