New York All Set to Host One of the Biggest Blockchain Events of the Era, the BlockchainWeekendNYC 2019
Happening on November 7-10, BlockchainWeekendNYC is a more private, and regional take on its sister event, the BlockchainWeek. It would be hosted in partnership with NYC’s tech community and the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC).
Serger Millman, the Managing Director of Starta Ventures and the BCW Event Host, stated:
“We are super excited to be a part of Blockchain Weekend. This year and in the coming years, it will be known as a great way to feature blockchain projects to the NYC tech community and the world. Blockchain Weekend brings together the NYC blockchain community and highlights projects that are critical to the future. We are very happy to be part of this initiative.”
The BlockchainWeekendNYC is also an initiative to showcase the blockchain cases and projects being developed in NYC. It is the most appropriate opportunity to explore the growth and potential of an industry whose value is anticipated to reach $24 Billion before the beginning of 2026.
Aimed at connecting the tech communities across New York, the blockchain event would collectively bring together more than 50 blockchain events over the 5 NYC boroughs. This 4-day event would be the first of its kind and will feature everything about blockchain opportunities, with over 200 participating organizations, and more than 5000 attendees.
There will be panels, educationals, pilots, use cases, and big releases that are taking place across the whole city. Most of the events will be whole-day events.
Marcos Dinnerstein, the former Chief Editor of Digital.NYC, Burson Cohn, and Wolfe organizer stated:
“This initiative is such a great way to bring together the NYC tech and blockchain community while bringing awareness to DLT and blockchain projects on a global scale. BlockchainWeekend NYC is the first event of its kind that lets all facets of the blockchain community feature their projects with events, panels, and workshops across the city. This blockchain initiative is agnostic, everyone is welcome to participate.”
Participating events would be representing various tech ecosystems inside New York. Some of the participants include the Silicon Harlem, Civic Hall, New York Public Library, Blockchain For Social Impact, and dozens of other organizations that are part of the NYC tech hub.
Young Woo Shin, Editor, Silicon NYC – Tech beat of NY, commented:
“We have been covering the expanding tech space in NYC for the last 5 years and we have seen exponential growth of the blockchain community over the last 3 years. We are glad to be a part of BlockchainWeekend NYC coverage, as this event unifies a decentralized nature of events with a blockchain global vision. The Silicon team will be on the ground covering all the latest happenings, projects and companies that are rising from the New York blockchain community. We are excited to be a part of this historic initiative!”
