Blockchain Shift: Groundbreaking event to debut in Miami

Inaugural Conference to Benefit the Newly Launched Florida Blockchain Foundation, Shining a Spotlight on Miami as a Future Crypto Hub of the Americas

Miami will host the first-annual Blockchain Shift conference (www.blockchainshift.io), bringing together leaders from industry, technology, finance and the arts to celebrate the potential of distributed ledgers, crypto currencies and the democratization of finance.  The event will take place from October 11th – 12th, 2018, at Mana Wynwood (318 NW 23rd St, Miami). Blockchain Shift has already confirmed the participation of key sponsors such as IBM, seriesOne and tZERO; as well as an array of A-list speakers including U.S. Congressmen, City Mayors, federal regulators, billionaire technologists and internationally-renowned celebrities.

Blockchain Shift: Groundbreaking event to debut in Miami

“The ground is shifting beneath our feet, as technology advancements have disrupted virtually every sector of society,” said Dan Viola, attorney, entrepreneur and Founder of Blockchain Shift. “Our event will celebrate these advancements, while bridging the gap between a crypto crowd and more advanced legacy industries that are beginning to understand blockchain is here to stay.”

The event agenda will feature a main stage for keynote addresses, panel discussions and fireside chats; with topics ranging from Crypto Hedge Funds, Crypto Broker-Dealers, Banking and Blockchain, Blockchain Solutions for Wall Street, Real Estate and Art, combined with a current look at SEC, FINRA and FinCen regulations. A second stage for STOs to present to accredited investors and receive general marketing and legal feedback. Finally, an exhibitor space will serve as a place for engagement, networking and learning with unique lounge-style seating that will be equipped with Bloomberg terminals and a live television broadcast so that attendees can stay abreast of the markets and not miss the presentations on the main stage.

A sampling of confirmed speakers includes Congressman Carlos Curbelo, Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Alchemist Co-Founder Steve Neyaroff, Chris Ferris of Hyperledger, Emma Channing from Satis and Mayor of Coral Gables Raul Valdes-Fauli.

Although the event has just been publicly announced, it has already made great strides with key attendees and partnerships.  Current partners include IBM, tZERO, Alchemist, seriesOne, Americas Execution, LLC, AV Yachts, Security Token Partners, BitGo, CoinBoost, Securitize, Ledger, Cohen & Co., Harneys, Empire Asset Management Company, Joseph Gunnar & Co, and Shutts.

A portion of the event proceeds will go toward funding the Florida Blockchain Foundation, a new 501c3 organization aimed to create a crypto-friendly state and hub for the Americas, by stimulating high-paying jobs, increasing the tax base and ultimately fostering a more equitable economic landscape for all. The organization will focus on advocacy, promotion and education across our state.

“This event will serve as a catalyst to put Miami on the blockchain map,” said Alex Lopatine, Managing Partner of Park Capital and Executive Chairman of Blockchain Shift. “We believe quality content and having fun should not be mutually-exclusive, and that’s what Miami is all about. The gorgeous weather, interesting people, favorable tax rates and friendly political climate are the perfect ingredients to make our city a Crypto Hub, and Blockchain Shift aims to celebrate this bright future.”

Blockchain Shift will place an equal emphasis on quality of experience, with curated sponsor events, yacht excursions, curated food trucks, networking opportunities and Night Shift, an unparalleled event featuring top-shelf spirits, internationally-renowned DJs and VIP bottle service. Furthermore, the event will provide much-needed white glove approach, offering a concierge app, accepting crypto for tickets and sponsorships, delivering badges pre-registered to the hotel and preventing inconveniences such as long lines.
