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.

Crypto Investor to File Lawsuit Against AT&T

Michael Terpin believes that AT&T helped scammers to still his $24M worth crypto
16 August 2018   93

In the Los Angeles District Court, a 69-page lawsuit was filed by BitAngels founder Michael Terpin against the American telecom giant AT&T. Terpin claims that the operator assisted fraudsters in "stealing digital personal data" from the account on his smartphone, which is why he lost $ 24 million in cryptocurrency, according to an official release.

According to Terpin, for seven months, there were two hacks. Initially, an attacker got access to his phone number without providing a password or correct identification data. Later, the phone number was used to steal crypto.

AT&T’s studied indifference to protecting its customers’ privacy and financial assets is a metastasizing cancer, threatening hundreds of millions of unsuspecting AT&T’s customers. Our client had no idea when he initially signed up, nor when later he was promised the highest level of security for his account, that low-level retail employees with access to AT&T records, or people posing as them, can be bribed by criminals to override every system that AT&T advertises as unassailable.

Pierce O’Donnell
Lead counsel for Terpin in this complaint

Michael Terpin requires AT & T to pay him $ 224 million - $ 200 million for moral damages and $ 24 million for actual theft.
