I am very excited to speak about the potential for Bitcoin and blockchain at Crypto Invest Summit. I want to speak with the biggest players in the blockchain community, and challenge them to make innovative products that create utility - and then bring real value to their users.

Steve Wozniak

Co-Founder, Apple

Steve will be speaking at 1st day (October 23, 2018) @ 9:30 am

Steve isn't on veteran developer, he is also a true crypto fan!

Only Bitcoin is pure digital gold… and I totally buy into that. All the others tend to give up some of the aspects of Bitcoin. For example, being totally decentralized and having no central control. That's the first one they have to give up to try to have a business model.

Steve Wozniak

Co-Founder, Apple

Woz is one of the pioneer crypto and blockchain supporters, he is also a global activist of decentralization.

We want Woz and the audience to debate and discuss blockchain technology and its applications. Our platform is for candid conversations, fostering relationships, and deal flow. Ten people from the audience will get to ask Woz questions. The whole point is to learn things at the summit that cannot be easily searched for on google.

Josef Holm

Co-founder, CIS

Crypto Invest Summit 2018 will take place in Los Angeles Convention Center, from 22 to 24 October. Convention space will be increased to over 60,000 sq/ft. Team plans to attract 5,000+ attendees

Among speakers, besides Woz, we can find:

  • Tim Draper, founder at DFJ
  • Crystal Rose, CEO at Sensay
  • Scott Walker, Managing General Partner Wavemaker Genesis & DNA
  • And more!


No one demonstrates innovation and distributing its rewards to those who helped build it more than the Woz. That is the fundamental spirit behind why so many of us were drawn to the cryptocurrency community. To do it right, everyone is incentivized and rewarded for participation.

Alon Goren

Co-founder of CIS and crypto fund veteran

Besides Crypto Invest Summit, Alon and Josef had recently launched the Goren Holm Ventures - a blockchain and cryptocurrency investment fund.GHV invests in and also incubates projects related to blockchain technology, digital currency, crypto assets and marketing and/or servicing those products.

The expected launch of the Bakkt will take place on December 12 of this year. It is reported by The Block, citing informed sources.

Also, the material states that the investment bank Goldman Sachs does not plan to create custodial cryptocurrency solutions based on the Bakkt infrastructure. At the same time, the bank is considering the possibility of trading futures on a new platform.

In a recent Fortune interview with Bakkt, Kelly Lofler said that the cryptocurrency market is on the verge of a revolution comparable in size to the one that occurred on the energy market in the early 2000s.

Greater institutional participation in the digital asset markets requires secure and regulated custody solutions. We are impressed by BitGo’s product, unique services, and the management team. We view our investment in BitGo as an exciting opportunity to contribute to the evolution of this critical market infrastructure.

Rana Yared

Managing director, Goldman Sachs’ Principal Strategic Investments group

Bakkt is a cryptocurrency unit of the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which is the operator of the New York Stock Exchange. Giants such as Microsoft and Starbucks are taking part in creating of the new project, which is positioned as an “ecosystem for digital assets”.

The new platform will offer deliverable bitcoin futures to the market (unlike the settlement contracts for CBOE and CME, these are based on the underlying asset). The platform will support multiple fiat currencies.
