Blockchain evangelist, Tracy Leparulo of Untraceable, brings back the large Blockchain Futurist Conference in Canada for its second year on August 12 to 14, 2019, Toronto, Canada.  It will be held at Rebel Entertainment Complex at 11 Polson Street, Toronto, Ontario.  

Last year’s conference was attended by over 2,300 attendees from around the world discussing the future of technology including blockchain, artificial intelligence and other emerging disruptive technologies.

It featured leading executives, entrepreneurs, government officials and prominent blockchain vanguards. Speakers included: Larry King (GEAR Blockchain), Charles Hoskinson (former CEO of Ethereum), Anthony Di Iorio, (CEO of Decentral & Co-founder of Ethereum), and Roger Ver (CEO of Bitcoin.com).  Notable attendees included Bruce Croxon, former Dragon of Dragon’s Den and businessman, Stan Bharti.

According to Alexia Hefti, Deloitte’s Global Blockchain Leader, Indirect Tax,  “Futurist is Canada’s leading blockchain conference and was one of 2018’s most immersive and engaging blockchain conferences globally. Attending Futurist will expose you to many of the world’s leading authorities on blockchain and will give you access to the most cutting-edge research on developments in the technology.  I have no doubt that 2019 will exceed the successes of Futurist 2018.”

Untraceable’s mission is to help tokenize the world by tokenizing the Futurist conference.  The Blockchain Futurist Conference is one of the first and only blockchain conferences to incorporate token experiences.  It provides attendees an experience of what the world will look in a future with blockchain technology, where goods and services can be purchased with digital money in the form of tokens and cryptocurrencies.  

Attendees will have the opportunity to get tokens or cryptocurrencies free of charge and use them to purchase various items at the conference.  Last year’s conference featured Bunz, which permitted conference participants to buy their lunch from food trucks or purchase items from their marketplace using $50 worth of BTZ tokens downloadable from the Bunz app. Bunz will be returning again this year.  Participants will have the opportunity to get over $100 in cryptocurrency, like last year, and experience a truly crypto-immersive world.

Bitcoin ATM machines will be available on site for anyone that wants to purchase cryptocurrency.    This year’s conference has a great lineup of speakers, experiences, panels and workshops including:
