Bitcoiner#1 Bitcoin meetup

Bitcoin was the first-ever cryptocurrency, and its appeal is continues to grow. In order to expound and proliferate the usage of Bitcoin, a BTC Meetup called “Bitcoiner#1” is planned for BlockShow Asia 2019. The goal of Bitcoiner#1 — which is held in collaboration with Blockstream — is to disseminate information on the development surrounding Bitcoin, with up to 500 participants expected to attend. Blockstream is also a leading provider of both open-source and commercial Bitcoin technologies. Both early adopters and new believers will benefit by attending, hearing renowned Bitcoin supporters and contributors share their latest insights as well as learning about Bitcoin’s development. The event will be held on Nov. 16, 2019 and the entrance fee is a mere 1 Satoshi.

Samson Mow, the chief strategy officer of Blockstream, said:

"Bitcoiner#1 is going to be a great event that gives bitcoiners a chance to focus on the many, many developments happening in the Bitcoin space without any distractions. We're looking forward to catching up with everyone in Singapore!" 


The Medialogue: Bringing together journalists and PR agencies

The invitation-only “Medialogue” on Nov. 13 will bring together top media and public relations agencies. The event is a gathering of 100 people in both the media and PR industries, allowing them to network, and will bear witness to lively debates on a wide range of topics surrounding the crypto media industry. 

The agenda will span topics ranging from how best to communicate with anonymous sources to ethical concerns on groundbreaking stories and their impact on the market. Fact-checking, weeding out scams and establishing criteria for news stories in a dynamic market will also be discussed. 

Addy Crezee, founder and CEO of BlockShow, said:

“Events are important and Medialogue is a great step for all journalists interested in the decentralized tech space to gather together and make a step forward. There are lots of things to discuss and share, that’s a totally new field for the media.”

A master class on the future of digital money

Antonio Fatas, professor of economics, the Portuguese Council chaired professor of European studies at INSEAD, will conduct “Master Class: The Future of Digital Money” at the INSEAD Asia Campus on Nov. 13. After the announcement of Libra, there has been a renewed focus on digital money and its implications, as well as its role in the traditional economy. This one-off master class, which is being organized in conjunction with BlockShow, will examine the future of digital currencies as well as the role of central banks and regulators in evolving payment systems and financial markets.
