ANON Summit 2020 to become a fully online experience

BlockExpo's ANON Summit 2020 is going digital after the cancelation of the proposed event in Vienna, according to a press release shared with Coin Rivet

BlockExpo has announced that they are moving ANON Summit online for 2020 after the physical event was cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The event is scheduled to take place on May 19 and 20 with an array of reputable speakers being booked including the Head of Banking at Kraken Digital Asset Exchange, Maximilian Marenbach.

The likes of Neo director Lili Zhao and the author of Mastering Bitcoin, Andreas M. Antonopoulos, will also speak while the Austrian Federal Minister for Digital and Economic Affairs, Margarete Schramböck, will open the event.

With the use of novel technology the upcoming summit is being dubbed as mirror of the offline experience with the conference having a stage, workshops and even an expo area.

“We will make distance irrelevant. Attendees will save money and time. Everything becomes instant.” said Daniel Lenikus, CEO and Co-Founder of BlockExpo. “Our goal is to exceed all expectations and herald the age of online conferencing.”

Attendees have been given the choice of two tickets, one that is free which comes with full access to the stage and expo area, and another for €20 which provides full access to the workshops.

BlockExpo has joined forces with Cointelligence to ensure the event runs smoothly. Cointelligence’s CEO, On Yavin, revealed how he believes social distancing “isn’t doing anything to slow down the blockchain revolution”.

Yavin, who has previously been interviewed by Coin Rivet, added: “If anything, it’s just speeding things up. Now, people who might not have previously had the interest or ability to fly to another country for a blockchain conference will have the opportunity to attend a top-notch event from home. I think we’ll see a lot of new enthusiasts attending ANON 2020 and really getting excited about the possibilities.”
