There’s been plenty of activity happening in the community as a result of a more consolidated approach to marketing. Today we bring you information on all the awesome BitShares events lined up for 2019 (plus one more returning in 2020!).

The originally planned North American BitShares conference has subsequently been combined as a sponsored package around the World Cryptocurrency Convention (WCC) taking place in Las Vegas this October. This will be a huge event, in brief it will gather people from multiple disciplines and attracting notable sponsors for the ‘Vegas Blockchain Week’, where BitShares will be exposed to an audience spanning the entire industry.

The University of Nicosia presents the 3rd annual Decentralized Conference, which will take place in Athens, Greece, on 30 October – 1 November, 2019. Decentralized has established itself as Europe’s premier conference on blockchain and digital currencies. Decentralized 2019 will bring together world leading business executives and academic experts to debate current trends and future developments across three conference tracks: Pre-conference workshops, Business/Technology, and Academic.

BitShares had a great success with this major European event in 2018, and therefore decided by stakeholder consensus to take on a comprehensive package in 2019 as a premium sponsor. The worker proposal was thus launched to fund a number of marketing activities in alliance with the organizers. Check out the BitShares mention here, for example: DECENTRALIZED 2019: The ‘Father’ of Blockchain to present at Athens Conference
Sponsorship at the previous 3 editions of this event was a great success, thus BitShares will again join in to support our Graphene sister chain for STEEM FEST 2019. In short, the event schedule has been lined up for Bangkok, Thailand, this November. The full program will consist of two conference days, multiple social events, tourist explorations, and additionally a closing dinner on Sunday 10 November.
Check out the Steemfest website for more information in the meantime.
Last but not least – BitFest will return!
Following a successful event in 2018, BitFest is taking a break in 2019. Organized by the BitShares Blockchain Foundation (BBF) and Blockchain Projects BV, the event gathers together enthusiasts of Graphene, BitShares and blockchain in general. We checked with the key people, and they have consequently informed us that BitFest will be back in 2020! Look out for announcements here and on other media channels in the coming months.
