When and where is it on?
World Crypto Con (WCC), the world’s most immersive and interactive cryptocurrency and blockchain conference, is taking place from October 31st to November 2nd at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The event is a global stage for industry leaders to share their breaking news and technologies with thousands of investors, experts, developers, businesses and attendees who are using cryptocurrency and blockchain to change the world.
How many years has it been going?
This is the inaugural World Crypto Con. We’re debuting the conference experience on the 10th anniversary of the release of Satoshi Nakamoto’s Bitcoin whitepaper.
What was the inspiration to start it?
The founders witnessed the influx of crypto and blockchain events, but felt that most events were too similar; covering the same topics with the same speakers talking at you, not with you. The space doesn’t need more echo chambers, it needs vibrant experiences that are worthy of this tremendous industry and opportunity, which is why they created World Crypto Con.
What exciting things can people look forward to?
Guests can look forward to a roster of never-before-seen cryptocurrency and blockchain-based experiences. Attendees won’t just sit back and listen to speakers. They will actually have the opportunity to interact with the technology onsite through events including a Bloqchain Smart Vegas Hackathon, a Blockchain Poker tournament, a welcome Bitcoin birthday party and more.
What opportunities are on offer for those attending?
For three days, World Crypto Con will bring attendees on a journey to truly experience the transformative power of blockchain and cryptocurrency. In addition to being at the forefront of innovation and discovery, attendees will enjoy access to unparalleled education and events including cutting-edge discussions, innovative hackathons and unique, never-before-seen networking experiences.
Who will be speaking?
Speakers include the biggest names in cryptocurrency, including Brock Pierce, Chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation, Charlie Lee, Founder of Litecoin, Charlie Shrem, Crypto Pioneer and Founder of the Bitcoin Foundation, and Bobby Lee, Founder of BTCC, Vinny Lingham, the CEO of Civic, Ronnie Moas, Founder of Standpoint Research and countless other industry titans.

What tips would you give to people attending to get the most out of it?
In addition to getting enlightened and educated through World Crypto Con’s programming, attendees should take advantage of the networking opportunities. World Crypto Con is also a place where businesses and investments will be made and ideas will be shared. We believe the best relationships are formed in person, so we’ve designed the entire conference around making connections with potential new partners that will move the space forward, and creating stronger relationships with existing ones.
