Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia, Will Speak at Major Blockchain Conference BlockShow Europe In Berlin

Among conferences, BlockShow is like the Cirque du Soleil of the circus – we stand out from the competitors. We are not your typical conference: we remove standard, official stuff from it and focus on a casual atmosphere where [the] community feels [at] home and where people can network and sign contracts. We disregard the word “official”, and like to replace it with “informal”. We are a show for blockchain business representatives to spend their time efficiently.

Addy Creeze, CEO of BlockShow

With new and exciting seminars across the world, blockchain technology is opening its doors to influencers and users from all backgrounds. But, when it comes to educating consumers about the technology, there have to be more than just concepts – there has to be show. It’s important for these engagements to appeal to more than just the intellect of individuals, but to their passions and hobbies.

Meet the Cirque du Soleil of the blockchain – BlockShow Europe. Providing exposure to the most innovative releases and promising blockchain companies that are disrupting global industries like IoT, AI, and cybersecurity, BlockShow Europe aims to stand out from its competitors. Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia and one of Time’s “100 Most Influential People,” will be delivering a keynote speech at BlockShow. Wales, a huge influencer and proponent of the crypto sphere, first started toying with Bitcoin back in 2014, according to a March 2014 tweet. Accompanying that tweet was his wallet address, and within no time he had received a total of five BTC in unsolicited donations. The rest, as they say, is history. Since 2014, Wikipedia and the rest of the Wikimedia Foundation have accepted Bitcoin donations, helping to drive usage of the digital currency.

Much like how Jimmy and other influential individuals have pushed the adoption of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies, the conference at which Jimmy will be speaking is also helping the industry grow in an effort to bolster the understanding and usage of these technologies. BlockShow Europe is dedicated to discovering the hottest innovations and trends in both the European and global blockchain scenes. The event will bring in more than 3,000 attendees, over 150 projects, and 80 speakers and experts from various walks of life, including banking, tech, and numerous other institutions and global industries.

Most importantly, it’s also about making sure the space plays ball with the higher-ups – regulators. At the event, representatives of central banks and European governments will also share their vision and experiences of harnessing blockchain technology.

The event will take place in Berlin on May 28-29.
