If someone mentioned “blockchain conference” in conversation, it would more than likely bring to mind a weekend filled with people in suits and booths trying to sell their ideas and agendas regarding technology and cryptocurrency. As of September 7, 2018, that will change.
European Blockchain Week is September 7-13. Imagine a scenic cruise, including multiple days on the island of Ibiza, surrounded by people with similar interests in blockchain, with an atmosphere of relaxation, sharing, creativity, and community.
Ordinarily, anyone interested in finding like-minded blockchain peers would probably go to a conference like the one mentioned initially; suits and booths at a traditional business venue. While there is a place for this type of gathering, it may not promote the type of creativity, community, and expression that can further blockchain’s adoption and potential. European Blockchain Week 2018 is looking to change the status quo.
Giving, Caring, and Creativity
Bitcoin Foundation chairman and visionary Brock Pierce, looks for the week to have a feel similar to the annual Burning Man – a yearly event that emphasizes aspects such as radical inclusion, communal effort, civic responsibility, participation, and giving.
Brock Pierce, crypto billionaire and former child actor, currently resides in Puerto Rico as he continues to impact the blockchain world. Pierce is someone who seems to embrace the values of burning man in his own life. In fact, he was actually married at Burning Man. Listed among The Richest People In Cryptocurrency, Pierce states that “this is an opportunity to be a trillionaire—someone who is positively impacting a trillion living things on this planet”.
Futurama which is part of the European Blockchain Week, also had a very successful first summit in Dubai (May 2018), of which Pierce stated:
“Dubai was the best event I’ve seen in the space. First time events always have tons of room for improvement so the second edition should be out of this world”.
European Blockchain Week 2018 will be an event with an atmosphere of giving more than taking, with a focus on creating a community of people who are creative, as well as caring for the world around them.
Cryptocurrency and Blockchain are all about breaking the current mold by means of creativity and innovation. Blockchain technology has the potential to change the world. But, for that to happen, innovation must be given the right atmosphere to thrive, and great minds must be given unique opportunities to gather and collaborate, without the standard atmosphere of pure personal agenda and monetary gain.
Miko Matsumura, co-founder of Evercoin exchange and partner at Gumi Ventures, says;
“Futurama is an effort to kind of create a point of concentration, where the future can be brought out from”.
