Virtual reality, fintech and more await at the July 19-20 event at the Marriott Marquis.

San Francisco ,CA — In the first-ever live-streamed blockchain event, a studded cast of presenters and panellists will take to the stage at the two-day conference in San Francisco.

The fifth installment of the d10e Conference, which runs July 19-20, is set to showcase the latest in fintech and disruptive, decentralizing technology, with two marquee presenters in renowned computer scientist John McAfee and information security expert and prominent Bitcoin community member, Andreas M. Antonopoulos.

In addition, the conference will be live-streamed in virtual reality courtesy of conference sponsor Time Technologies, a Canadian company developing virtual reality camera technology in conjunction with blockchain applications.

Blockchain technology has revolutionary implications across a spectrum of business sectors, said d10e chief decentralization officer, Matt McKibbin.

“Society is moving away from hierarchical, top-down and centralized models of organization and into decentralized peer-to-peer models based on trust, and reputation and the sharing of resources with others.”

McKibbin added, “What the Internet did for the free exchange of information, blockchains and the Internet of money can do the same to ... value exchange and governance.”

At d10e, McAfee will be delivering a fireside chat at the pre-networking event on July 19 with Paul Puey, CEO and co-founder of Airbitz, a bitcoin wallet provider and merchant. They will be discussing the interplay of blockchains and cybersecurity, including the vulnerabilities, opportunities, and how usable encryption will be delivered to the masses at scale.

McAfee and MGT Capital Investments recently announced plans for McAfee’s takeover as Chairman and CEO of the firm, which is “principally engaged in the business of acquiring, developing and monetizing intellectual property assets.”

The second featured keynote speaker will be by Mastering Bitcoin author Antonopoulos, whose book is considered one of the top technical guides to Bitcoin.

As a bitcoin entrepreneur, Antonopoulos has founded a number of bitcoin-related businesses and has launched several open source projects as well.

Other presenters and panellists include Dash Lead Developer Evan Duffield, Brock Pierce, managing partner at Blockchain Capital, and Node40 co-founder Perry Woodin, among a wide cast of industry-related notables.

The conference’s goal is to foster a casual environment, where people can focus on engagement, knowledge-sharing, community, and conversation. It will be held at the Marriott Marquis located at 780 Mission Street.
