TechCrunch Ethereum Meetup has been scheduled to take place in Zug, Switzerland on July 7, 2018. This event is a day event starting at 1PM and ending at 6PM.
The purpose of this event is to help consumers better understand the blockchain technology, along with several of its facets including the notions of decentralization, smart contracts, scaling and hack concerns, Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), startups, cryptocurrency adoptions and much more. More emphasis is said to be placed on blockchain’s current stance, along with its potential growth and uses in the long run.
Over 28 speakers will be sharing their experiences, expectations and much more. Some of the experts who will be speaking include the likes of Galia Benartzi, Business Development at Bancor, Justin Drake, Researcher at the Ethereum Foundation, Joseph Lubin, Co-Founder of Ethereum and Founder of ConsenSys, Dolfi Mueller, Mayor of Zug, Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance and much more.
