The buzz around Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has seemingly cooled off compared to the last year. Nevertheless, there is still a lot going on around Blockchain. After all, with dramatic economic global events going on – including the demonetization processes that have happened in some countries (e.g. in India) lately, cryptocurrencies are gaining credibility. That implicates that the actions around them are more and more based on experience. That is why crypto enthusiasts are often interested in exchanging knowledge about cryptocurrencies on specialized events.
Every year there is a plethora of such events – organized with the aim to educate, engage and collaborate with the mainstream public on advancing the Blockchain and crypto industry. During these events, crypto enthusiasts look to discuss opportunities. They network with like-minded individuals and get firsthand experience of the latest trends in the crypto world.
In this post, we are sharing some of the best Blockchain conferences and summits worth visiting in 2019.
Philippines Crypto Expo Asia 2019

In fact, with the Cagayan Economic Authority, Philippines’ government has granted over 15 crypto exchanges licenses to operate in the country – which is a great result. For this reason, the Crypto Expo Asia will be taking place in MAKATI Shangri-La as from the 27th of April 2019. During the expo-forum, about 3,000 exhibitors, 50,000 visitors and 500 speakers are expected to attend. The organizers promise to make it one of the biggest crypto and Blockchain events in the country. Additionally, they aim to make the conference an important event for the entire Asian region.

The visitors can expect multiple events with the main conference at the heart of London in the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel. The main overarching agenda will be to look at the reasons why the hype around Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies has faded – featuring a keen look at Blockchain’s future.

This here is a one-day event that will be held from 29th to 30th January 2019 in Berlin. The conference is centered on enabling a secure and decentralized future of the web. Speakers at the event will present topics on decentralized governance and the relevance of Web 3.0. With Ethereum making the decentralized web a reality, the talks at the conference will focus on how Aracon will enable advancement and discoveries of DAOs and other Web 3.0 applications. There will be over 500 participants expected to attend with an option to live stream the entire event as well.
If you are an investor interested in cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, one of the most popular events you should not miss is the Crypto-Pro Expo.
