‘World Blockchain Forum – New York’s Better Blockchain Conference’

With a new focus on security tokens and financial regulation, Keynote delivers their seventh World Blockchain Forum, the first ever in New York. Final ticket release begins 29th May.

Having produced two of 2018’s biggest bitcoin and blockchain events in Miami and Dubai, Keynote is honored to bring the World Blockchain Forum to the Big Apple as they host the first WBF: Security Tokens & ICOs on 12th and 13th June.

Held at Manhattan’s Metropolitan West, the intimate two-day event includes a change in format with ‘ICO Pitch Panels’, where ICO projects will use a panel discussion platform to showcase their product moderated by blockchain visionary Moe Levin. Attendees will experience a comprehensive introduction from high profile industry experts including Vanessa Grellet, Bruce Fenton and Salil Donde, knowledgeable in not only blockchain and financial regulation but the complexities of Wall Street, offering invaluable insight into the future of security tokens.

Announcing lead partnerships with Victory Square Technologies and Polymath, this WBF speaker line up is set to deliver a groundbreaking agenda rounded off by Victory Square Director Peter Smyrniotis awarding the top 3 ICO/STO panelists with $100,000 shared investment.

In addition, WBF Dubai Environmental Sponsor Climate Futures will return for WBF New York, after having retired over $14,000 in 1PLANET tokens to balance the carbon footprint of over 600 international flights to Dubai.

Projects wanting to exhibit alongside WBF regulars bitcoin.com and Academy School of Blockchain are advised to move quickly to secure limited last space in the vibrant Exhibiting & Networking Hall.

“Though bitcoin and blockchain technology is rapidly becoming more understood, security tokens remain a black-box to most people. Which is strange, because as far as I can tell, the only real way to unlock the next trillion dollars of value in the ecosystem is by digitizing the traditional financial world through security tokens,” said Moe Levin, Founder and CEO of Keynote. “Showcasing the best and brightest in the industry has been the aim of Keynote since 2012, and we’re excited to be bringing the 7th edition of the World Blockchain Forum to New York City.”

One of the reasons for this is that technology improves at such a ridiculously fast pace, and innovators in this industry are able to match up with those technological changes pretty quickly.

An innovation in technology that the Internet gambling industry has really learned from is cryptocurrency, with bitcoin in particular leading the way. We’ve seen it emerge as an alternative banking method, but it’s going to change the industry as a whole in ways that people can’t quite understand yet.

A Post-Legality Era

Something that has eluded online gambling since its inception is the idea of a global governing body. As it stands right now, each individual country (and smaller units of jurisdiction) have their own governing bodies that oversee in the industry. A lot of these laws are tied to banking laws, and that’s where the legality of playing in bitcoin casinos becomes such an interesting topic.

In the present, we’re seeing country-based regulatory bodies from places like Malta, Gibraltar and the United Kingdom start to work together and recognize each other’s licenses more and more. That’s taking serious steps towards having a global governing entity, and once that happens, the role of bitcoin is going to be even larger than it is now because it’ll…

On the other hand, applying VPN one transmits and gets data in encrypted form which makes it protected.

Anonymity

Generally, isn’t hard to trace an Ip-address of any user and to identify his location with sufficient accuracy. With the help of VPN, the attacker will only get the address of the removed computer. Undoubtedly, the safeguard…
