What we have:
This is the institutional realm. University Symposium meets the crypto push. I can’t think of anything more poetic. Along with incredible speakers such as Andreas Antonopoulos (<3), Ian Grigg (EOS), Avi Sela (EToro), I find this event an excellent opportunity for less savvy (crypto-wise) but extremely well educated and influential individuals to come together and learn of this emerging ecosystem. Bear in mind there’s little to none crypto project attending as most believe it’s too big a leap to gather foreign intelligentsia into such an intricate sphere in just a couple of days. I say these people have signed up to learn more and what better way than contextualizing the gifts of blockchain technology into a concrete solution such as a cryptocurrency. Hey! That’s us! They’ll go nuts for PIVX.
