Blockchain Summit: 14 February 2019, Zurich

blockchain summit zurich

Gartner predicts the business value-add of blockchain will grow to around $176bn by 2025 and exceed to $3.1tn by 2030. This is a giant leap for a technology that, although developing fast, still has significant gaps in meeting business challenges to generate value. CIOs are under pressure to guide decisions on ‘if’ and ‘how’ they should implement blockchain, but struggle with how to apply this technology to meet new business challenges. Cryptocurrencies, themselves require a degree of financial and technical knowledge to understand.

But there is a growing focus on the business challenges that blockchain could solve and soon it will be able to show real business value, real-world applications and an ecosystem of organisations supporting it.

The primary focus of this summit is observing the world of blockchain and crypto-currencies by bringing to you the latest insights from visionaries, developers and experts as we connect founders, thinkers, and doers within the community and encourage conversation and collaboration.

With an impressive line-up of industry experts, we present perspectives across different industries by delving into the latest happenings, and discuss use cases such as:

Understanding Blockchain Technologies & Markets

Digital exchanges – digital tokens, fiat and stable currency

Regulatory aspects

Crypto currencies – an exact measure of value

Professional advice on the new age of investment

Smart Contract Management and security

Blockchain from the investor’s perspective

Legal and fiscal aspects of investing in cryptocurrencies

Blockchain to transform and improve customer experience

Blockchain technology for banks

Blockchain and the supply chain

The future of Blockchain.

8,500 Attendees Ignite Blockchain Island

The inaugural edition of the Malta Blockchain Summit has been a resounding triumph. Held on the 1st to 2nd November, at the Intercontinental Hotel, St. Julian’s - the Summit saw intense interest, from both local and global quarters, with 8,500 attendees turning up for the event.

The success of the show means the Summit will likely move to a larger venue better equipped to handle the scale of a growing Summit.

The Summit marked its entry as a key player on the island’s blockchain calendar, with the official launch of Malta’s DLT regulation acts announced during the Regulatory Conference. The three pieces of legislation moved swiftly through parliament, with approval conferred in July and August, before officially coming into effect on the first day of the Summit.

The new DLT regulation bills to mark Malta’s induction to a global hall of fame as the Blockchain Island are: the Malta Digital Innovation Authority Bill, Innovative Technology Arrangements and Services Bill, and the Virtual Financial Asset Bill.

The launch of the bills comes in tandem with relocation from major players in the crypto sphere, such as Binance, OKEx and ZBX, and government promise to make the aptly dubbed Blockchain Island a hub for blockchain excellence.

With notable denizens of the industry, such as cryptocurrency evangelist and business guru, John McAfee, blockchain father and co-founder, W. Scott Stornetta, Hanson Robotics creation, Sophia the humanoid robot, and the Honourable Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta, addressing riveted audiences, the summit carried an aura of prestige and quality.

“I came to talk about the early work that we did, laying the foundations pre-Bitcoin for the blockchain. It is a little frenzied and very crowded. I think they succeeded a little too well in attracting people here.” said W. Scott Stornetta.

“I think it is an excellent summit. The quality of the attendees and the people presenting is excellent, it is well organised. Eman Pulis, the Founder of the Malta Blockchain Summit, is tremendous. But basically I came, so that I could talk, which I did. I want to tell the world, as I see it.” said John McAfee.

A competitive Hackathon for developers was overseen by a panel of some of the most influential movers and shakers in the industry. The judging table made place for esteemed individuals such as Scott Stornetta, Charles Hoskinson, Ilya Smagin, and Lucas Park.

Blockchain Charity Lottery took first place and a coveted prize of €25, 000, with TPass and Tensegrity coming in at second and third place and winning €15,000 and €10,000 respectively.

A heated ICO Pitch lit up the stage on both days of the Summit, as 35 ICO’s battled it out for invaluable mentorship from a line-up of savvy investors, industry exposure and a share of the $100,000 prize. Startups Rise and AEToken took first and second place on Day 1 and Tatau and GoMama grabbing the crown on the second day of the Pitch.

A new government AI strategy was announced during a press conference held at the Malta Blockchain Summit. The Junior Minister for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation, Hon. Silvio Schembri launched a task force which will design a national strategy on AI and explore a citizenship test for robots – placing Malta amongst the top 10 nations in the world to do so. Malta.ai will work in collaboration with SingularityNet, the company behind Sophia, the humanoid robot’s AI.

An elegant Halloween-themed awards night launched the two-day summit with a slew of prizes being handed out to companies who have made their mark in the industry – with winners being recognised for a plethora of achievements, from ICO of the year to AI of the year.
