The event organisers invite all conference guests to listen not only to the top speakers, but also to attend B2B meetings which can be arranged on the special B2Match mobile app. The app will show all registered participants with whom you can chat via instant messaging and arrange B2B meetings.
Joined for the first time in history, the world’s leading blockchain centres - Blockchain Centre Vilnius, along with the Blockchain Centres in Melbourne, Shanghai, Sydney and Dubai - are organising a BCV Global Round Table before the conference which will be attended by the heads of all the aforementioned centres. The purpose of this first roundtable in Vilnius will be to take this debate forward and agree on priorities for 2020, present the tools and solutions that can unlock the long term social and economic value for the public. The focus will be specifically on distributed finance and alternative funding instruments for start ups.
