How To Make The Best Of Crypto And Blockchain Conferences?
Cryptocurrency conferences and Blockchain events have been a headline in the news every week. After all, the cryptocurrency world is constantly changing and to keep up with everything you will need a front-row seat.
There were more than 60 major or minor events in just the first month of 2019. Over 400 events will be held in over the year. Obviously, one cannot travel to all these conferences for various reasons. However, if you are planning to attend one, you should look at a few things before making your choice.
It is imperative that you know your purpose of attending the event. Given below are the list of reasons why people attend them.
- Networking: A big reason for going to conferences is to meet with like-minded people and industry peers. Conferences bring together people from all different geographical areas who share a common discipline or field, and they are a great way to meet new people in your field.
- To expand your knowledge: You will hear a lot about things in your field that will be new to you. These could be new techniques, new types of equipment, unpublished data, or learn from thought-leaders that you may not have previously heard of. Conferences give you the opportunity to talk to these people one-on-one about what they are working on, and they may even give you advice on how to enhance your own work.
- For people to meet you: Conferences are also a good way for people to meet you. Regardless if you are the CEO of a multinational company or a second-year grad student, or even presenting for the first time, you may meet someone at a meal, in the exhibit hall or wherever and within a few minutes, you can make a connection with someone that could dramatically impact your professional career.
- Learn beyond your field of expertise: This is a two-fold benefit of attending conferences, since not only may you learn things outside your field about other areas of research in your discipline, but conference attendance also have many sessions for professional development and career advice.
You should go through the list of speakers coming to the conference and see if they interest you. There are other factors like the prices of the tickets and access to the event. One should look at the themes surrounding the event too. It is important to get a feel for just how much innovation is taking place in the bitcoin ecosystem, of course there will be common references and chit-chat about coinmarketcap values or the price of bitcoin, but there are many more blockchain-type use case applications being advanced when so many like-minded individuals link up and help bring digital assets and virtual currency mainstream.
