March 3, 2016, the 2nd annual National Crowdfunding Association of Canada Crowdfunding Summit will be held at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto.
Keynotes and panels at the summit provide insights about innovations in global finance and the sharing economy, impact investing, economic growth and market trends, regulatory updates and a fearless look at the future. This year’s theme is “The Future is NOW” and the summit is hosting two presentations with information about the blockchain and how it has changed crowdfunding.
Big Data Investment Trends and Digital Finance Technologies will have blockchain content presented by Steven Dryall, Principal of Incipient Technologies (and content contributor for NewsBTC Canada). Steven will be presenting about asset-based/redemption-oriented digital tokens and the potential opportunities and challenges they bring to new markets.
Of significant note: Ethereum founder Anthony Di Iorio, Chief Digital Officer at The Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) / TMX Group, co-founder of Ethereum, and founder and CEO of Kryptokit, Decentral and Decentral Consulting will be delivering the closing keynote speech for the summit: How We Raised Over $18M via Global P2P Decentralized Network.
Last year’s event sold out and this year should expect the same.
The National Crowdfunding Association of Canada is a Canadian non-profit organization engaged with social and investment crowdfunding stakeholders to provide education, research and networking opportunities in the rapidly evolving crowdfunding industry.
Decentralized technologies and crowdfunding have been a natural fit since their inception. The addition of content related to blockchain and decentralized technologies to the National Crowdfunding Summit is exciting and further promotes the ideals of cryptocurrency. It looks like this is going to be an even bigger year for the cryptocurrency industry and in newer ways.
