BlockDown 2020 speaker lineup to feature industry heavyweights
Scheduled to take place from Jun. 18 to Jun. 19, the BlockDown virtual conference will feature some of the most prominent voices in the crypto industry. After a successful conference in April, the company decided to reuse the popular virtual summit format in the upcoming event, where regulation and compliance in the blockchain industry will be the main focus.
Compliance and regulation will be the main focus on BlockDown’s roundtables
Mark Rakhmilevich, the senior director of blockchain product management at Oracle, and Julian Sevilliano, a senior advisor at IBM, will be hosting roundtable discussions on regulation and compliance during the upcoming BlockDown conference. The roundtables will be available to business and VIP ticket holders, while the rest of the conference will be free to attend.
While the conference will be free for all to attend, requiring only a quick email registration, those holding higher-tier tickets—the business and VIP deals—will be able to attend the exclusive roundtables.
In a press release shared with CryptoSlate, Erhan Korhaliller, CEO and founder of blockchain PR agency EAK Digital, and organizer of BlockDown, said the roundtables were a way for business and VIP ticket holders to get the ultimate BlockDown experience.
“BlockDown roundtables give business and VIP ticket holders the chance to have their say in the most important discussions surrounding blockchain and cryptocurrency at the moment, including defi and custody.”
Real-time problem solving with IBM and Oracle execs
According to Korhaliller, between six and eight roundtables are planned for the virtual conference, where diverse topics such as decentralized finance, enterprise blockchain, and custody will be discussed.
Oracle’s senior director of blockchain product management, Mark Rakhmilevich, will host one of the roundtables, organizers have confirmed. Rakhmilevich’s session will be called “Lessons from Blockchain Cloud PaaS implementations in Financial Services and Supply Chain projects: Progress and Challenges.”
Julian Sevillano, the senior advisor at IBM’s Promontory Financial group will host a roundtable discussion on regulation and compliance in the blockchain space, as will representatives from blockchain companies Neo and Tomochain.
Those holding VIP tickets will also be able to participate in the exclusive “Mastermind sessions,” where some of the leading voices in the industry, including high-up executives from companies such as IBM and founders of innovative blockchain projects, will participate in live problem-solving.
The conference will also feature many other speakers, including David Schwartz, the CTO of Ripple, Roger Ver, the executive chairman of Bitcoin.com, Jed McCaleb, the founder of Stellar, as well as Grammy-nominated artist and crypto investor Akon.
BlockDown 2020 will be live-streamed across the crypto media, including CryptoSlate. To find out more, head to www.blockdownconf.com to sign up and register, join the BlockDown telegram, or email [email protected].
