The Binance Blockchain Week is to last four days in the first month of 2019: from the 19th until the 22nd of January. The venue is the Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands.
The crypto giant has spread word that around 2,000 participants will be there, travelling from all corners of the world.
What will happen during the Blockchain Week
The whole thing will be two big events that will last four days. The Blockchain Week will start with a hackathon that will go on for two days. This is also called the Binance SAFU Hackathon. Then the Binance Conference will occur.
The press release says that both events will be visited by top regulators of the industry, major investors, businessmen, technology experts and scientists. They will discuss the state the DLT ecosystem is in presently and ways to stimulate the growth of the industry.
The conference will be attended by more than 70 speakers, among whom there will be leaders of the blockchain area. Among them are Justin Sun, the CEO of TRON; Eric van Miltenburg, a top figure at Ripple; Da Hongfei, the creator of NEO; Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the Binance creator and CEO, and many others.
CZ added that his company is delighted to conduct this important Blockchain-dedicated event in Singapore, the place that is currently a fintech hub of Asia. The Binance CEO expects to have fruitful discussions that will provide a lot to think about and new ideas on how the DLT and crypto spheres can be developed in the future.
One more purpose of the Conference
One of the specific goals of the Binance SAFU hackathon (SAFU standing for ‘secured assets for users’) is finding innovative methods of keeping crypto coins secure. On the panel of judges there will be reps of the Ethereum Foundation, PwC, Binance Labs and other major blockchain companies.
The main prize for the winner will be $100,000 in BNB provided by the Binance exchange. Registration for participants is open via the exchange starting on December 10.
