The DCS will cater to investors, politicians, banks, and regulators, where international financial experts will discuss the future prospects of cryptocurrency.

The event will be held at the Palace of Congresses in Andorra la Vella. The number of ticker is limited to 500 tickets at a reduced early-bird price of 930 Euros. The first hundred tickets were already sold within the first 2 days.
