Experts, academics, engineers and innovators are set to gather in Miami this month to discuss the latest in blockchain technology and its role in the rapidly evolving fintech space.
The IOHK Summit, hosted by blockchain engineering firm IOHK, will bring together sector stakeholders for a two-day event examining cryptocurrencies, fintech legislation, social media, blockchain’s potential in the developing world and the future of finance.
Speakers on the agenda include Gabriel Abed, co-founder of Barbados-based fintech firm Bitt, which recently partnered with the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank to pilot the world’s first central bank issued cryptocurrency.
Additional presentations will cover blockchain safety, the future of blockchain platforms from a regulatory perspective and the latest research in the field.
Aside from speaker presentations, the event also includes workshops, a virtual and augmented reality exhibition and a collaborative hackathon for developers interested in IOHK’s new smart contract platform and financiers who want to learn more about creating smart contracts on the blockchain.
“As a company, IOHK is committed to developing blockchain solutions that provide financial inclusion for millions of people across the world,” said IOHK marketing director Hayley Smith. “The summit is an excellent opportunity for people to come and learn about how we are achieving that goal, and to see real-time demonstrations and discussions from our in-house experts.
“Given its proximity to Miami and its burgeoning blockchain scene, we are excited to welcome attendees from the Bahamas to our annual summit. We have noted with interest recent developments on the island, including the development of its central bank digital currency.”
The IOHK Summit takes place April 17-18 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. For more information visit www.iohksummit.io
