As a growing number of cryptocurrency and blockchain innovations filter into the U.S., the Litecoin Foundation has announced its first annual summit, taking place Sept. 14-15 at the South San Francisco Conference Center.

The concept of cryptocurrency is a growing field of interest, which Litecoin (LTC) aims to take advantage of in an effort to educate and influence โ€œmass adoption,โ€ according to founder Charlie Lee. The event will feature actual demonstrations with businesses looking to segue into cryptocurrency purchasing tactics as part of their infrastructure via the foundationโ€™s #PayWithLitecoin campaign.

Prior to implementing cryptocurrency, attendees will have an opportunity to experience a virtual on-site store that will provide an example of how crypto-purchasing works. Moreover, speakers will discuss cryptocurrency regulation, the future of all currency and the Lightning Networkโ€”a near-instant and scalable form of blockchain payment that bypasses typical blockchain confirmation times.

Additional topics that will be highlighted during the event include sidechains, smart contracts and RootStock; the importance of non-custodial wallets; cryptocurrencies from a venture capitalist’s perspective; and a plethora of tips.

Most cryptocurrency organizations have developed a home base in Asia, with Litecoin registered in Singapore. With assistance from full-time employees and volunteers, Lee plans to increase state-of-the-art technologies in currency as a social good, rather than only investment vehicles for big businesses.

In a press release, Lee said:

โ€œWe are very excited to be bringing this amazing lineup and community under one roof. There has been a lot going on in the blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem in the past year, and there is no better group of people to explore current and future happenings. Weโ€™re also excited to be able to bring the Litecoin community together.โ€

The two-day summit will also provide a variety of networking events, including mixers for VIP guests. A 50 percent VIP ticket discount is being offered for a limited time with the promo code LTCSF18. Registration can be done at the summit’s official website.
