As has become evident during the first quarter of 2018, Malta is taking the lead as the blockchain hub and has become known as ‘Blockchain Island’ across social media, following the relocation decision of Binance and OKEx, the two largest crypto exchanges. Boasting over 5000 delegates, 100 speakers and 300 sponsors and exhibitors, the Malta Blockchain Summit promises to be an innovative and momentous opportunity for global influencers to network, forge new connections and debate the potential applications of blockchain – reflecting the central role that Malta is establishing as a jurisdiction for crypto exchanges and blockchain application developers.

The summit is comprised of four conferences covering the field’s government and regulation, marketing and affiliation, fintech, tokenomics and cryptocurrencies, and blockchain for developers. To provide maximum value for their exhibitors, blockchain developers and affiliates are invited to the Malta Blockchain Summit free of charge. The summit also includes a two-day Hackathon, an ICO Pitch, a buzzing expo floor, a Blockchain Awards Ceremony, and ends with an unwinding Crypto Cruise.

An illustrious melting pot of global speakers has already been confirmed to take part, including prominent individuals such as blockchain Co-Inventor W. Scott Stornetta, Evercoin-founder Miko Matsumura, Forbes 30 under 30 entrepreneur Christopher Obereder, Eric Benz, Mike Butcher, Jon Matonis, Nate Whitehill, Loretta Joseph, Matthias Klees, Max Krupyshev, Gordon Einstein, Alex Lightman, Eva Kaili, Joseph Cuschieri, Sally Eaves, Philippe Chevry, Tugce Ergul, Steve Tendon, Pavel Kravchenko, and Ian Gauci. The Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat, will inaugurate the regulatory conference.
