Currently, there is a euphoric craze on the cryptocurrency sector, as it promises lucrative profit margins within a considerably short time. As a result, more investors seek to acquaint themselves with this industry, in a bid to remain profitable in the future. However, the digital currency industry is still budding; hence information on it is understandably scarce.
Having noted the knowledge scarcity regarding cryptocurrency matters, a group of concerned stakeholders organised the VanFunding 2017 conference. The event, scheduled for Tuesday 28th November 2017, bought together investors and elite minds from the virtual currency sector and financial technology as a whole.
Agenda of the Meeting
The convention seeks to spur positive development of both prospective and existing investors by discussing the contemporary challenges and recommending relevant solutions and growth advice.
Key speakers will be eminent personalities such as innovators, entrepreneurs and other policy makers drawn from the emerging industries including blockchain ICOs, cryptocurrency, alternate coins, p2p and crowdfinance.
Throughout the meeting, delegates will learn how to effectively and successfully trade in the Canadian innovation markets. Alongside the main meeting, there will be another sideshow event, named the Regtech Hackathon, which aims to develop networking and interaction skills among attendees.
The delegates will form groups which will then formulate a unique idea and pitch it before a team of professional judges. Afterwards, the winning team will take home an accolade.

The two-day event happened on 27-28th November 2017 in Downtown Vancouver. On the first day, the meeting was convened at The Diamond, Gastown. This was however open to a chosen few, those who have the privileges that come with VIP access.
