Will 2020 be the year blockchain goes from a buzzword to necessity? The ongoing COVID-19 crisis is exposing deep cracks in every aspect of our modern society, including economy, politics, social structures, and institutions.
With its hallmark features being security, decentralization, and immutability, blockchain has a lot to help and could be a force for a better post-COVID-19 world, offering innovative solutions to age-old and emerging issues such as cybersecurity, data privacy, supply chain transparency, surveillance, and inclusive finance.
The only question is: can blockchain move beyond proof of concept and break the catch-22 of real-world adoption?
Asia Blockchain Summit, the world’s leading gathering of professionals involved in blockchain and emerging technologies, is going to tackle just that.
In its first virtual edition scheduled for July 15-19, Asia Blockchain Summit 2020 (ABS2020) will feature seven speaking tracks in its 5-day conference in parallel with interactive workshops, demos, AMAs, and online meetups run by attending companies.
The tracks will deliver thought-provoking keynote speeches, fireside chats, and panel discussions on the given topics including:
The summit will run from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm GMT+8 every day, with on-demand replay for ticket holders at other times during the event and after the event.
This year marks the third edition of Asia Blockchain Summit. Born with the sole purpose of facilitating conversations and collaborations that advance the blockchain technology, the conference now has taken its offerings to the next level, bringing together people from diverse industries, disciplines, and backgrounds.
In addition to celebrity astronaut Chris Hadfield and other stellar speakers already announced, 130+ new speakers have added to the high-caliber lineup of ABS2020.
One exciting addition to the line-up is Hester M. Peirce, one of the five commissioners with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, also known affectionately in the U.S. blockchain community as “Crypto Mom” for her pro-crypto stance. Commissioner Pierce will share opinions on regulatory issues surrounding digital assets.
Some other newly confirmed speakers include:
The summit is expected to draw 200+ speakers and 20,000+ attendees from more than 50 different countries. Check out the full speaker list here.
ABS2020 has three levels of tickets: Earth, Moon, and Mars.
All the featured tracks, workshops, demos, AMAs, and online meetups at ABS2020 will be live and interactive for Moon and Mars Ticket holders, using an online platform ABS2020 is developing and to be launched very soon.
Beyond the great content, ABS2020 will offer networking opportunities and virtual booth environment powered by Brella, enabling holders of Moon Tickets and above to connect with speakers, attendees and sponsors with similar interests and arrange virtual meetings to carry conversations further.
The host of ABS2020 also intends to use the online platform to deliver more inspiring and meaningful content and events in the year ahead to add value for ticket holders.
Moon Ticket holders will be accessible to ABS2020 content and potential upcoming content on the platform from registration to the end of September. And Mars Ticket holders for 12 months from registration.
Earth tickets are “invite-only” offers for the communities of media and event partners.
