Cryptocurrencies, have given us a far superior and effective method of receiving and sending money.
Yet, it is almost impossible to pay with crypto or tokens in any regular shop, taxi or even online.
The new generation of crypto currency holders have their funds in crypto but cannot spend it.

Throughout the conference we will give the stage to some pioneering blockchain projects from all over the world.
