Building on the success of their previous events in Singapore and New York, LATOKEN returns for their third event dedicated to bridging blockchain with the global economy: Blockchain Economic Forum (BEF) is coming to San Francisco Marriott Marquis from the 16-19 June.

The four-day event is expected to draw over 2,000 participants, including movers and shakers from the world of fintech, politics and media. The forum will host over 40 inspiring discussions on blockchain opportunities for strategic development of real sector companies, industry regulation, technology updates, as well as being a goldmine of networking opportunities for attendees. 

Hailed by many as the most disruptive technology since the invention of the internet and one of the most rapidly growing technologies finding its application among businesses, the conference aims to drive the discussion on the blockchain expansion, innovations, and integration with our existing economy. The most pressing concerns of the crypto economy and blockchain expansion, innovation and integration will also be discussed in hopes of accelerating mainstream blockchain adoption.

Among the distinguished speakers confirmed in the line up include Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee from 2007 to 2011 and co-sponsor of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, a sweeping reform of the U.S Financial industry. Another notable speaker confirmed for the event is the founder of Crypto Asset Management, Timothy Enneking who launched and managed the first crypto trading fund and also launched one of the first crypto trading funds in the US. Also present is Mir Haque (CEO of Aphaea Capital), Miko Matsumura (Founder of Evercoin Exchange) and Vinny Lingham (CEO of Civic Technologies).

“Blockchain Economic Forum is designed to empower pioneers to find ideas, investments, partners, and friends,” says Valentin Preobrazhenskiy, CEO of LATOKEN and Chair of BEF Organizing Committee. “Together we will make crypto official and widespread in order to automate capital markets, money and states. This will save billions of working hours each year. Blockchain can automate elections, courts, state finances and make them more transparent. As a result, 6 billion people will overcome corruption to catch up with the golden billion. This is how emerging economies may grow by $400 trillion. At the same time, the costs of state services in developed countries will likely be halved.”
