Leparulo, who has produced large-scale, high-quality blockchain events including POLYCON18, the world’s first Ethereum Hackathon, and the world’s first Securities Token Conference, continued: “It’s a very exciting time to be in the blockchain space, with many of the most innovative and highly-regarded projects hailing out of Canada. However, we must move beyond just the ideation phase of blockchain and start using the technology in our everyday lives and discover its strengths and weaknesses. Every aspect of Blockchain Futurist Conference was designed for the community in mind. With its blockchain-friendly regulation and thriving startup community, Toronto is the best place for us to explore the technology and have fruitful discussions.”
