Crypto Fest 2019 SeptemberSep 07 2019 Europe/MadridCape Town, Sudáfrica


Bitcoin Events is delighted to be hosting South Africa’s first Crypto Festival in Cape Town on 7 September 2019.

There’s been a lot of renewed interest in cryptocurrencies in Africa and globally, and the Crypto Festival will highlight the exciting opportunities that cryptocurrencies offer individuals and organisations: from investing, trading, mining and transacting to privacy, security, price volatility, tokenisation of assets, Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and Initial Exchange Offerings (IEOs).

South Africa is at the forefront of crypto adoption. It has the highest percentage, 10.7%, of internet users owning cryptocurrencies, twice the global average of 5.5%, according to a recent international survey by social media management firm Hootsuite in partnership with London-based WeAreSocial.

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have certainly changed the way we think about money, privacy, investments, payments and more. Cryptocurrencies are a disruptive innovation that numerous start-ups and individuals are leveraging, along with blockchain technology, to build innovative products and services for consumers and businesses alike.

We are expecting about 150-200 attendees from various backgrounds and industries at the Crypto Festival: crypto exchanges, payment systems, investment firms, mining operations, trading enthusiasts and companies, ICOs and IEOs, legal practitioners, crypto enthusiasts, blockchain developers, thought leaders, industry innovators and entrepreneurs.
