The Week Ahead in Crypto – 03/11-03/17

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This week seems to be Conference and Meeting Week in crypto, thanks in no small part to Asia Crypto Week, but we also have other events as well a mainnet launch. So let’s waste no time and dig right in.

March 11-17 – Asia Crypto Week, Hong Kong

Asia Crypto Week takes place this week in Hong Kong, featuring a week of independently organised educational and developer-focused events aimed at providing first-hand information about the industry. Key events include an Ethereum SuperMeetup with Vitalik Buterin, a Tone Vays Trading Workshop with the not-quite-bald-but-on-the-way legend himself, and a Litecoin meetup with former CEO Charlie Lee.

Other projects holding events at Asia Crypto Week include Cindicator, TenX, Hashgraph, Gnosis and Ocean Protocol, plus the Helix Accelerator launch party. It promises to be an enlightening event focused heavily on the technical aspects of blockchain as much as the future of crypto in general. If you’re in Hong Kong and you have a few hours to spare, why not take a look at the schedule and see if anything takes your fancy?

March 13 – Holochain Meetup, Montreal

Holochain fans in Montreal will be talked through the basics of Holochain architecture and everything surrounding the project in this informal meetup by Holochain developers Damien Douté and Ashanti Mutinta. This will be followed by a Q&A when attendees will be able to have questions and concerns addressed by the pair. Tickets are on sale now for the event, which is being held at Flowland Montreal.

March 15 – Theta Network Mainnet

Theta network, a project that aims to be to at the forefront of blockchain-based video on demand, will launch their mainnet Friday. Binance and UPbit have already announced their support of the token swap that will exchange the ERC20 token for the proprietary THETA token and will see THETA fuel being distributed at a 1:5 ratio to THETA holders. Existing THETA token holders should make sure their tokens are either on one of these exchanges or in the official Theta wallet in advance of the swap date.

March 15 – Ravencoin Second Annual Meetup, Salt Lake City

Ravencoin is holding its second annual meetup in Salt Lake City, with guest speakers including Tron Black, Jeremy Anderson, Corbin Fox, and David Hoverman. Topics to be covered will include the current state of the Ravencoin project, resources for becoming a blockchain developer, how to use the Ravencoin Dev Kit, and a discussion on the importance of communities in crypto projects. The event will be hosted at the Overstock Peace Coliseum with free attendance and, even better, FREE PIZZA! Don’t just go for the pizza though – at least pretend to know what’s going on.
