The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit is one of the hottest blockchain events of the year and it’s back for another 2019 installment in November. The summit has become so popular in the crypto world that the organizers are now running two events every year. First up, we had the spring edition that took place back in May. The spring edition was a smaller event, but was still a sell-out. Next up is the winter edition, and the organizers are expecting more than 10,000 attendees, 400 sponsors and exhibits, 1,500 investors, and 200 top quality speakers from around the globe.
The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit in November is set to be one of the hottest events on the blockchain calendar, so make sure you don’t miss out!
Top Speakers Jetting to the Blockchain Island
As usual, there will be a number of high-profile names as well as crypto celebrities at the summit. It’s still early doors, but there are some epic names already confirmed to give enthralling talks in November. The May edition saw the likes of Tone Vays, Roger Ver, and Brock Pierce take to the stage, but November is going to eclipse that effort. Already billed to give talks is the magnanimous Craig Wright, Jimmy Nguyen, Tim Draper, Steve Tendon, and Gina Smith. Hopefully, Wright has perfected his rhetoric so that he doesn’t slip up and admit to not being Satoshi like he did at the CoinGeek Conference back in June.
Will We See More Controversial Awards?
If the past is anything to go by, the awards ceremony is likely to be the most amusing part of the entire event. Back in November 2018 at the inaugural Malta Blockchain Summit, both DQR and Genesis Mining won awards. DQR scooped Careers Program of the Year and Genesis Mining won the Mining Initiative of the Year award. Yet, by the middle of January both companies had run into financial difficulties and DQR closed its doors.
During the May edition, the award for Blockchain & A.I Influencer of the Year 2019 went to none other than Bitcoin.com. Many people are starting to question the legitimacy of the awards at this huge summit, so November could be make or break for the weight of these awards.
Regulatory issues are bound to be the hottest talking point at the summit, especially after Germany just introduced a controversial new crypto bill. As the months roll on, we will see more speakers announce their intentions. If you’re making the trip, make sure you pay a visit to the startup village, the best projects reside there.
