Victory Square Technologies Inc. (OTC: VSQTF) (CSE: VST) is partnering with Keynote to bring the World Blockchain Forum to New York City for the first WBF: Security Tokens & ICOs conference on June 12-13, 2018.
The two-day conference will bring together more than 1,000 major stakeholders in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. Building on the previous World Blockchain Forum theme of “ICOs and Investments”, next month’s event will introduce New York to fintech industry leaders, inspiring speakers, experts and innovators from around the globe, opening up dialogue designed to explore security tokens in blockchain.
“Although bitcoin and blockchain technology are rapidly becoming more understood, security tokens remain a black box to most people,” noted Moe Levin, Founder & CEO of Keynote. “That will inevitably change and change fast because in our view the only real way to unlock the next trillion dollars of value in the ecosystem is by digitizing the traditional financial world through security tokens. Showcasing the best and brightest in the industry has been the aim of Keynote since 2012, and we’re excited to be bringing the 7th edition of the World Blockchain Forum to New York City.”
Peter Smyrniotis, a member of the Board of Directors of Victory Square and CEO of Blockchain Assembly Inc. (“Blockchain Assembly”), will be speaking on the main stage on June 12, 2018, at 10:50 am (EDT). The combined Victory Square and Blockchain Assembly teams will also be hosting a $100,000 USD Investment Prize pool for the top three blockchain companies during the WBF’s Pitch Your ICO session.
Notable ICOs that have launched with Keynote include Ethereum (which is currently at a $27 billion USD market cap), Litecoin ($2.5 billion market cap), Dash ($2 billion), Factum ($70 million) and Blockchain Capital ($30M).
Keynote Events has hosted 14 global blockchain-focused conferences in the past five years, including London, Brussels, Dubai, Los Angeles, Miami, Amsterdam and Chicago. WBF speakers are typically recognized as innovators, thought leaders and decision makers in the blockchain and currency industries. Past speakers have included: Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com; Halsey Minor, Founder of CNET and Founder of Uphold; Craig Sellars, Co-Founder of Tether; Brock Piere, Co-Founder of Blockchain Capital; Sasha Ivanov, Founder & CEO of Waves Platform; William Quigley, Founder of WAX; Diego Gutierrez Zaldivar, CEO & Co-Founder of RSK Labs; Adam Perlow, Founder of Zen Protocol; and both Dr. Levin and Mr. Smyrniotis.
“Having already partnered with the WBF on two of 2018s biggest bitcoin and blockchain events in Miami and Dubai, Victory Square is excited to bring the World Blockchain Forum to the Big Apple,” said Shafin Diamond Tejani, CEO of Victory Square. “These conferences are strategically essential for us and New York will allow us to connect with the some of the most respected blockchain thought-leaders, institutional investors, regulators, leading companies and projects in the world, while at the same time showing off our own exceptional entrepreneurs and portfolio companies.”
A key for Victory Square are the Pitch Your ICO sessions where it will gain valuable insight from founders of the most promising upcoming blockchain companies. With over 30 leading blockchain companies selected to attend from all over the world to present to some of the leading cryptocurrency investors, Victory Square will judge and select three winners who will share in the special $100,000 USD prize pool.
“Victory Square continues to be a great supporter of not only the World Blockchain Forum but of the entire blockchain and crypto space,” added Keynote CEO Dr. Levin. “We are pleased once again to have Victory Square as a lead sponsor as they represent some of the most sophisticated minds in the industry today. With an already impressive and growing portfolio of blockchain-enabled assets under the Victory Square umbrella we look forward to seeing them showcase their talented teams in New York City.”
