First Blockchain Masterclass

The highly-anticipated summit will also include the first blockchain masterclass, hosted by BDO Malta. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the regulatory framework, viewpoints of blockchain technology and compliance and risk associated with DLT assets.

All these topics will be covered by their in-house professionals through a total of 5 active presentations where you can interact with the speakers directly.

A Live $100,000 ICO Pitch Battle

A selection of the most promising crypto and blockchain projects will have the opportunity to give a 6-minute pitch on the grand stage and face a Q&A with the official jury members and potential investors. The winner is rewarded with a $100,000 investment together with a dedicated marketing video for their ICO project.

A Two-Day Blockchain Hackathon

Furthermore, the summit will host a 2-day blockchain hackathon where several teams, who registered, will battle for the opinions of the judges based on originality, feasibility and benefits of their initiative.

The theme of the hackathon is obviously not revealed yet for competitive reasons, but we know that both decentralized and distributed solutions will be considered. It is too late to apply for the hackathon, but it’s not too late to checkout what these blockchain-fanatics will come up with!
