After the previous Crypto Invest Summit this Spring sold out, the organizers decided to expand the summit and will more than double the size of the show’s footprint this Fall to over 60,000 square feet of expo, presentation, breakout rooms and meeting space. Also, because of the extremely successful live taping of CNBC’s Crypto Trader Show on the main stage, and the media floor that included CNBC, Forbes, Fox, Investor Town Hall, ICOinvestor.TV, Huffington Post, Small Cap Nation and many more, the space dedicated for media partners has been expanded as well.

While panel discussions, keynotes and fireside chats with crypto and blockchain experts are taking place on the main stage, companies launching Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and Token / Crowd-Sales will take to the pitch stage to present their investment opportunities to the investors and the general public in attendance. They will also have deal-making tables amongst the sponsors on the summit’s expo floor, where attendees will be able to meet fundraising companies, exchanges, funds and other cryptocurrency and blockchain service providers.

Los Angeles is the one of the world’s top crypto eco-systems. Our goal is always to bring the best deals in the world to our investors, and introduce the best entrepreneurs in LA to crypto investors from around the world.

Gemini & Partners to Launch Virtual Commodity Association

Association is created to develop standards for the industry, promote transparency in the market and cooperate with regulators, including the CFTC

Several major exchanges decided to create a new structure designed to eradicate manipulation in the digital assets market, Bloomberg reports.

The Virtual Commodity Association was formed by the founders of the exchange Gemini Cameron and Tyler Winklewoss. According to a statement released on Monday, the group also included Bitstamp, BitFlyer USA and Bittrex. Representatives of four trading platforms will meet in September to consolidate the provisions for the future functioning of the organization.

The Virtual Goods Association will develop standards for the industry, promote transparency in the market and cooperate with regulators, including the Commodity Futures Trading Commission of the United States (CFTC), in order to prevent manipulation of Bitcoin, Ethereum and other currencies.

As the temporary executive director of the organization, Maria Filipakis, who worked in the Financial Services Department of New York, was appointed, where she took part in the creation of a BitLicense.

Earlier, the Winklewoss brothers tried to launch their own ETF, tied to bitcoin, but the US Securities and Exchange Commission denied them twice, as the reasons for its decision, among other things, calling for the absence of adequate measures to prevent cryptocurrency market manipulations.
