Event description


With the thriving information and accessibility, Blockchain is not only the next generation of the Internet, but also a new area with the potential to stimulate the evolutionary structural change in our information society. The Blockchain conference is a revolution of “Machine Trust”, which is a revolution in production relations, potentially a step into the largest digital revolution in human history. With the multi-billion investment opportunities, there is a sense of urgency to reach the level of consensus across the globe.

Following the Consensus Conference in May 2018, and the WBF Blockchain Conference will be held in November in New York City. The conference aims to feature 4,000 people with the theme on Interconnection between Technology and Human Intelligence. The global blockchain industry is thriving and opening markets for funds, exchanges, public chains, media, mines. We believe the WBF will position the unique values in the industry to bridge the business opportunities between China and U.S.
