Event description


Financial Blockchain Forum 2019


The potential of blockchain in finance is immense. Financial blockchain products including cryptocurrency exchanges, digital asset management, and more have seen the highest implementation rates among all blockchain projects. We believe financial blockchain projects will grow exponentially as blockchain dives deeper into the sophisticated financial industry in 2019.

The summit will be the first of its kind in the San Francisco Bay Area, focusing on the intersection of blockchain technology and finance. The FinBlock Summit will gather world-class venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, industry professionals, incubators, media platforms and regulation experts from all over the world in both the blockchain and finance industry. There will be extensive networking, media exposure, and potential partnership opportunities.
