Leading Blockchain conference held in Switzerland for the first time: d10e in Davos
Zurich/Davos, 7 November 2017 — All too familiar with the challenges of the traditional banking business, Switzerland is looking for opportunities in the rapidly growing market of economic decentralization with its offshoots fintech, initial coin offerings (ICO), Blockchain, sharing economy and disruptive digital business models. As a recognized harbor of trust and political decentralization, Switzerland will — from 11 to 14 November — for the first time host the d10e, the leading conference series on the decentralization of the economy. The partner and co-initiator of the conference in Davos is the SmartOne Foundation, which aims to integrate the legal sector into the revolutionary development of the Blockchain technology and facilitate access to legal services for the crypto community.
“We are very proud and humbled to be co-hosting the first d10e in Switzerland. We believe this is a unique opportunity; both for the conference and our project. The whole team is looking forward to meet members of our community”
Said Patrick Salm, Co-Founder of SmartOne.
A Unique Opportunity
Launched in 2014, d10e addresses the decentralization of the economy, with a strong focus on services related to Blockchain technology. After eleven successful events, including in cities such as Singapore, San Francisco, Amsterdam and Kiev, the conference will now be held in Switzerland for the first time. The 12th global edition of d10e in Davos will give Swiss ICO projects an excellent platform to present their ambitions to a qualified investor audience.
During the event, visitors can look forward to various presentations and topic panels on the current challenges of blockchain and its regulation, a an ICO competition presenting around 20 selected projects to be financed via initial coin offering. Members of the Blockchain Investors Consortium (BIC) will judge the projects and decide which projects will receive funding from their own investors. The BIC currently has approximately 100 individual members with more than $2 billion in digital assets under management.
