With the opportunity to participate in 85 different blockchain conferences in 2017, DECENT has been actively engaged in hundreds of conversations with crypto experts, cutting edge developers, and blockchain enthusiasts. The contacts made throughout the year have lead directly to the biggest partnerships and adoptions of DCore to date, projects such as ALAX, a DECENT joint venture with Dragonfly, which will bring DCT to over 100 Million monthly active users.
DECENT kicked off the year’s tour with Learn Blockchain from Experts, on January 14th and finished the year with a bang at the QianChain Camp on December 16th. DECENT had major appearances at blockchain events in Slovakia, China, the USA, the UK, the Netherlands, and Hong Kong, with additional attendance and networking in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Ireland, the Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, India, Canada, Malaysia, Japan, Brazil, Sweden, Russia, Portugal, Spain, Ukraine, France, Indonesia, Cyprus, India, Bulgaria, Singapore and Denmark.
Highlights include events such as: the World Blockchain Forum-Investments and ICOs, New York; the IOT World Congress/Blockchain Solutions Forum, Barcelona; the Central European Startups 2017, London; the Blockchain and Bitcoin Conference, Stockholm and Kiev; and the FinTech Summit, Bratislava. Audiences at these key events often reached more than 1000 and were packed with crypto specialists, miners, and investors. The general agenda for DECENT at these events was focused on engaging those interested in content production and distribution, payment processing, as well as blockchain applications in various industries.
DECENT founder, CEO and president, Matej Michalko, spoke at various events, topics included: The Future of Content Distribution, Author’s Rights Protection, and Lessons Learned from DECENT’s ICO. Along with introducing DECENT and its blockchain building platform DCore, DECENT often spoke to raise overall awareness for blockchain technologies.
With all the experience gained from attending others’ events it was high time DECENT organized a conference of its own. The Unchained Conference in Hong Kong was specifically designed to help bridge the gap between industries using the power of Blockchain. The event offered an exclusive experience with a limited number of seats (120) with contributions from thought leaders, tech disruptors, investors, builders/creators, exchanges, payment processors and the most influential journalists in the blockchain industry.
Networking is an incredibly important part of DECENT; participation, support and organization of events helps to spread the word about blockchain innovations. DECENT will continue to lead when it comes to integrating blockchain with real-world applications and help industries decentralize power, inspire innovative projects, and most importantly build applications for a decentralized global future.
