“…the technologies that underpin bitcoin are a safe bet to disrupt the 
finance sector.”

- The Economist

THIS IS THE BEGINNING

Everything you know about finance is about to change. Over the last 7 years an experiment called bitcoin has created and proven a new kind of financial technology: The Blockchain.

The Blockchain is a new, smarter way to track financial transactions and contracts. They are faster, safer and more efficient than any ledger ever before. They are set to rock the financial world. Are you ready?

“Blockchain technology continues to redefine not only how the exchange sector operates, but the global financial economy as a whole”

Bob Greifeld, CEO of NASDAQ

WHY THE BLOCKCHAIN IS BIG NEWS

Visa, Citi, and NASDAQ

To modernize, streamline and simplify its administrative functions, NASDAQ has recently invested more than $100 million in implementing this new tech across the world’s second largest exchange.

UBS BANK

Swiss banking giant, UBS, is a big believer in the power of distributed ledgers to redefine finance. The bank has opened a research facility in London aimed at driving distributed ledgers mainstream.

ENTREPRENEURS

Visionaries like Apple’s Steve Wozniak, entrepreneur Jeremy Allaire and Virgin’s Richard Branson are investing millions in this new technology. They are among the first to see how valuable distributed ledgers are about to become.

MOST RESPECTED CONFERENCE

Now in its fifth year, Keynote is the longest running and most attended financial conference for the bitcoin, blockchain, and currency industries.

OUR HISTORY

Following the success of conferences in Amsterdam, Miami, Chicago, and Los Angeles, hundreds of senior executives will travel to Dubai again on March 6, 2017 to discuss the bright future of Bitcoin and Blockchain, the most successful virtual currency in the world.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin is making waves in both the media and financial world. With government regulators and online retailers finally recognizing the power of Bitcoin, this virtual currency is set to change the way we handle money.

“The blockchain is a technology which we’ve been studying, and yes it’s real, it can probably reduce the cost of doing business. If it proves to be cheap and secure, it would be adopted for a whole bunch of stuff. “

Jamie Dimon, CEO at JP Morgan

 

FIRST MOVER ADVANTAGE

If you’re not well schooled in bitcoin and its underlying technology, you’re not alone. Most executives don’t understand the repercussions of this new disruptive tech.

Attend the World Blockchain Forum to get yourself up to speed on the applications, ramifications and nuances of bitcoin and the blockchain. Be the first among your peers to profit from this new technology.

“Money at its core is simply a ledger for keeping track of debts, and bitcoin is truly the best iteration of a universal ledger we’ve ever seen.”

John Reed, CEO of Citibank
