Blockchain Gamer Connects San Francisco Speakers: the final addition
The latest speakers to confirmed
Featuring 40 speakers across four tracks entirely dedicated to blockchain gaming at Blockchain Gamer Connects San Francisco next Monday and Tuesday, the conference schedule is full to bursting point with the thought leaders, pioneers and characters that are at the forefront of this amazing new technology.
And yet we still found room for a final wave of speakers.
Investment and economics
Although blockchain obviously has applications outside of the gaming industry, it’s gamers that are the early adopters – as with much new technology.
Theresa Sun, managing partner at GBiB, will share her insights into distributed investment systems in blockchain, while IOCT’s Donald Demerzel will lay out the basics of blockchain economics in gaming.
Jonathan Miller, founder and CEO at Fitify will talk about cryptogames on the blockchain, while linguist, teacher and product manager Christian Hasker will make the case for Hedera Hashgraph as the best blockchain solution for gaming.
And Chen Wang, co-founder and CTO at Boostinsider joins a panel session all about using tokens to build a platform. Facing him for the debate will be Ulas Bilgenoglu, Radmule; Doug Dyer, Terra Virtua; Dean Anderson, Gamestatix; and Kieran Farr, Decentraland.
We’re thrilled to share the news that Hollywood movie director, Brett Leonard, will be speaking. Most famous – or is that notorious? – for directing 1992’s The Lawnmower Man inspired by virtual reality, Leonard has a track record of combining storytelling with technology. Hear first-hand how his new Studio Lightship venture builds ‘StoryWorlds’ and creates virtual experiences on the blockchain.
Asobimo’s Miho Mitsui, will also consider the way that blockchain will change the way we consume entertainment and further explores the ‘Distributed Secondary Content Platform’.
Blockchain is still so new that it remains to be seen how it will affect the way that games are designed. One speaker who will be looking ahead to the future of video games is Enjin’s founder and CEO, Witek Radomski, as he explains the operation and impact of blockchain items and assets.
Alpha Token’s CEO and founder, Wallace Lynch, will also share his thoughts on how digital assets will ‘change the game’.
One of the panel sessions that we’re most looking forward to is The Future Of Blockchain And Its Use In Games. It’s sure to turn up a few surprises from new speakers, Amino Capital’s Larry Li, Christopher Harz of Harz Associates, and Game Loot Network president and founder, Lance Baker. They’ll join existing panelists Rachel Cook, Seeds; Koh Kim, Blockchain Advisor; and Tong Xu, Super Game Chain.
More than talk
Blockchain Gamer Connects San Francisco In Association With Super Game Chain is a two-day conference with four tracks entirely dedicated to blockchain technology.
It’s a brand new event for 2018, where 40 of the sector’s biggest names will share their experience, insight and predictions covering everything from the Blockchain Basics to the latest ICO updates and future trends.
But there’s more to the event than the packed conference schedule, with networking opportunities everywhere you look, from the free Pitch & Match meeting organiser and Speedmatching developers with publishers to the Global Connects Party.
There’s also a live pitching roadshow, Indie Pitches, the Indie Showcase area – and that’s before you even think about the larger Pocket Gamer Connects conference. Your ticket gets you into both shows.
Where will you be on May 14-15? We hope you’ll join us in San Francisco for the first ever Blockchain Gamer Connects. Book your ticket now!
