Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Con 2018 (BCC-2018) will be the first international conference in Texas devoted to blockchain and decentralized technologies. It will be an opportunity for all involved in the arena, whether they are building Dapps and crypto-assets on blockchains, implementing DAOs, mining and trading cryptocurrencies, developing blockchain-based tokens and protocols, operating in the ICO spectrum, or involved on the legal or regulatory side of things to come together to explore and exchange ideas around a technology that’s set to completely reshape how we interact and conduct business in the coming years.

If you’re a developer, R3, a fintech startup that counts more than 100 of the world’s top banks and financial institutions as partners, will be conducting a 2-day Corda developer training course at more than a 60% discount off the price you’d pay in other locations (just $999, instead of $3000). That 2-day class is currently only available in London, New York, Singapore, and Tokyo, so this is your opportunity to take the same class closer to your neck of the woods.

And Blockmatics, a leading trainer in the blockchain space, will be conducting three separate training classes – a 2-hour Ethereum Smart Contract Workshop for developers, a 6-hour Business of Blockchains class, and a 1-hour Blockchain for Lawyers class. (Details of all these classes that will be available at the conference further down.)

So it’s going to be a fun-and-learn event. Seating for the classes is limited, so register now!

The venue for the conference will be the Addison Conference & Theatre Centre in Addison, a northern suburb of Dallas, Texas, and the conference dates are Thursday, February 22 – Saturday, February 24, 2018. Half of that time will be for the formal training classes, while the other half will be for standard conference presentations, discussion panels and an AMA session.

1. Yes, there will be speakers, excellent ones, to deliver awesome presentations on the most important aspects of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

2. There will also be discussion panels, because sometimes it can be more fun to have more than one speaker on stage at the same time.

3. We know you like listening to good speakers, but we also know that you’ll like the opportunity to ask them questions too. So, with an AMA session on the Saturday of the conference, you’ll have an opportunity to do just that.

Because all four of the classes are scheduled over two days, you can even take more than one. you may read more about the classes here
