NEXT BLOCK gathered more than 200 participants from Bulgaria and 15 more countries – top-tier experts, investors, opinion leaders and promising startups.

Giacomo Arcaro – №1 European ICO Growth Hacker, ICO STO Advisor, Black Marketing Guru Founder has delivered a meaningful keynote speech “Growth Hacking: How to get Millions for your Startup”.

Giacomo said:

“Hack it until you make it. Product is not the key factor anymore and content strategy comes along with a good marketing campaign, that’s why hiring a growth hacking and think out of the box is fundamental.”

Herbert Rafael Sim – TheBitcoinMan, Broctagon FinTech Group has opened the session on “Are Stablecoins Key to Crypto Adoption?”.

Herbert stated:

“Legacy asset trading tools create a user experience that is rife with inefficiencies – single-asset wallets, significant capital lock-up, and generally cumbersome asset management processes. And when it comes to cryptocurrency, these problems are magnified in the current state of trading platforms.”

“We seek to radically disrupt the traditional brokerage space through liquidity aggregation technology that allows simpler reconciliation with compliance tools, increased transactional throughput, and overall improvement in efficiency in end-to-end processes. We’re incredibly excited to share what we have in store for the entire crypto community.”

At NEXT BLOCK the guests could hear from industry experts and blockchain executives such as Eran Tirer, (Founder & CEO, Ledgertech AG), Yasen Yankov (Engineering Manager at Paysafe Group), Tony Evans (Co Founder of FGC Group), Silvan Jongerius, (Managing Partner & DPO at TechGDPR, Founder at, Marco Calicchia (Founder and CEO of Mazee), Mitchell Eaglstein (Co-Founder & CEO of FDCTech, Inc.), Pavlo Tanasyuk (Founder of Spacebit and CEO of BlockVerify), Ramón Ferraz (CEO of 2gether) and others.

The conclusion of the fruitful discussions could be stated in the following:

  • the tokens are maturing into the next wave of regulated securities; and, tokens pose many of the same risks and benefits as the bond and equity markets in the latter half of the 20th century.
  • stable price of the stablecoins can introduce the adoption to unstable economies and facilitate cross border payments,
  • despite being post it’s prime there are still quite a few successful utility tokens as VeganNation and Sirin Labs,
  • future of blockchain depends on the winner of the battle between the decentralized against the centralized approach.
