FrenchFounders with the sponsorship of crypto market data aggregator is organizing a special conference primarily reserved to FrenchFounders members. The topic of the event is "How Is Blockchain Disrupting the Future?". It will be held in New York on May 3 at New York City Hall. As the technology is often vaguely showcased and talking about the blockchain gets misleading and missing the core opportunities it offers, FrenchFounders invite those who are interested to join the discussion that aims to advance the knowledge in the field.

Together with such experienced professionals as Legolas Exchange Investor Frederic Montagnon, ConsenSys executive director Vanessa Grellet and Matrics CTO Jean Safar use cases ranging from ICO to the specific usage of blockchain-backed service will be studied. Among other participants there are AirSwap Head of Strategy Sam Tabar, Credit Suisse representative P. Simonnet, Oracle's N. De beco, Goldman Sachs' C. Bes and others. Each of them will share their own experience within the blockchain industry and give a better understanding of this secure, transparent, and decentralized technology.

The agenda for the event goes as follows:

  • 06:45 pm – 07:00 pm | Welcome
  • 07:00 pm – 08:00 pm | Panel discussion and Q/A  
  • 08:00pm – 08:30 pm | Networking Cocktail

Registration for the event is mandatory.
