CoinAgenda, the global conference series for connecting blockchain and cryptocurrency investors with startups, announced that its third annual CoinAgenda Caribbean event will take place at the InterContinental San Juan March 1-3.
Besides the conference’s keynotes, panels, presentations, Startup Contest and networking events, industry leaders will focus on blockchain economic development in Puerto Rico and other Caribbean jurisdictions, the rise of security tokens, enterprise applications, changes in the digital currency funding vehicles and digital currency exchanges.
“The Caribbean region has been a world leader in funding blockchain entities due to its innovative financial structures, and Puerto Rico has attracted more than 300,” said Michael Terpin, CEO and founder of CoinAgenda. “We’re excited to bring CoinAgenda Caribbean to Puerto Rico for its third year, and look forward to gathering some of the industry’s best and brightest minds to explore what’s next for cryptocurrency investing in 2019 and beyond.”
The conference will feature more than 40 speakers and 20 company presentations, including renowned author and economist Harry Dent; Alphabit Fund managing partner Liam Robertson; Tezos security adviser Ryan Lackey; and a panel of Puerto Rico-based blockchain entrepreneurs, including James Greaves (Glyph) and MichaelAngelo Anglero (Keyband). Conference organizers said more speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
CoinAgenda Caribbean also includes a startup competition “highlighting top entrepreneurs developing real-world use cases for blockchain technology,” a release explained, adding that “Founders interested in pitching their projects (including security token offerings) are invited to apply here.”
The contest is judged by “prominent token investors, and winners will be awarded a complimentary exhibit at a future CoinAgenda event as well as tickets to partner conferences. Past CoinAgenda startup competition winners have gone on to raise millions in funding, including Aeternity, Bancor, Cashbet, Omega One, SALT Lending, and Qtum,” according to the release.
