October 2018 Global Blockchain Forum

Key speakers such as Jeff McDonald, the co-founder of the NEM Foundation will speak.  Alex Mashinsky, founder and CEO of Celsius Network will speak as well. Civic co-founder Vinny Lingham, and Michael Arrington will also present.

It’s a can’t miss event full of big movers and shakers.

Panels at the event will include themes such a technology disruption, investment strategy, and the game-changing blockchain economy.

What we Could Hear from Arrington

In recent months, Arrington argued the U.S. needs to get behind blockchain a bit more.

We expect to hear more about that next month.

Remember, along with Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse, he believes the U.S. is falling behind on the future of the technology because of it.

While Facebook, IBM and Google are exploring its potential in the U.S., most startups are being developed outside of the U.S.  Again, all thanks to the reluctance to regulate.

“We have a few good U.S. investments,” added Arrington

“But 80-90 percent of our investments are in Asia, Europe and Israel right now because they are actually countries where there’s enough regulatory certainty that entrepreneurs feel safe starting token or blockchain companies there.”

“Here [in the U.S.] they don’t. There’s so much regulatory uncertainty, add to that the tax burden and the visa burden of coming here and then our current federal government’s stance on immigration in general, they’re just saying ‘Fuck it’ and they’re staying in Singapore or Israel or Europe instead of coming here and starting companies,” he added.
