“The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the Internet of information. The second generation — powered by blockchain technology — is bringing us the Internet of value: a new platform to reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better.” Don Tapscott, author of Blockchain Revolution

This is the future and you have the opportunity to hear from some of the best speakers in the world right at your doorstep, including Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin and world renowned expert Andreas M. Antonopoulos

The event is designed to educate, inspire, and connect business leaders in both the public and private sectors around the exciting opportunities that new generation blockchains such as Ethereum have created. It builds on TheBlockchain.NZ’s sell out, multi-city flagship event run in May 2016 (Ethereum.NZ) and the Southern Hemisphere’s first bitcoin conference (Bitcoin South) in November 2014. This will be a major international event, drawing audiences from all over Australasia.

“While blockchain is still a very nascent technology, it promotes the promise of a better future. Applied correctly, it is likely to be the most impactful digital transformation in our lifetime, changing the way we record and process data and transactions, and even changing the way we think.” - Leanne Kemp, Everledger
