Safe and Sound
We are less than a month away from the commencement of the premier conference focused on blockchain security. The conference, being held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on October 9-11 will bring together the world’s foremost authorities on cybersecurity, blockchain, cryptocurrency, developers, as well as legal and regulatory experts in this dynamic field. The three-day event will invite its more than 1,000 participants to experience talks by more than 100 speakers, attend educational workshops, demo existing and developing products, and network at exclusive nightly events. The event is being organized by Hosho, a global leader in blockchain security, specializing in enterprise-grade security services.
HoshoCon has pulled out all the stops to attract an impressive lineup of distinguished speakers. Some of the speakers include Meltem Demirors, Chief Strategy Officer of CoinShares; Adam Draper, Founder of Boost VC; Alena Vranova, Co-Founder of Satoshi Labs; and Michael Perklin, CISO of ShapeShift. The organizers recently announced that one of the world’s foremost open blockchain experts, Andreas M. Antonopoulos, will deliver the conference’s keynote address. In a press release obtained by BlockTelegraph, Antonopoulos said, “As a contributor to open standards, such as the CryptoCurrency Security Standard (CCSS), I hope that this event will foster more collaboration, more open standards, and more community development around security for open blockchains. I’m excited to participate in a conference that is focused on security for open blockchains, an important and nuanced topic that doesn’t get the attention it deserves.”
Fun and Games
Behind every great innovation is a team of dedicated people who made it possible. HoshoCon is embracing that by allowing plenty of opportunities for conference participants to interact with those innovators. This is evident in the involvement of Justin Blau, the Founder and CEO of Our Music Festival. Not only will Blau deliver an address discussing how blockchain technology can be applied to improve various industries, but he will also be performing as 3LAU at HoshoCon’s pool after-party.
“3LAU is one of the biggest names in EDM on the planet today. His world-class talent, combined with his passion for the blockchain industry, make him the perfect fit to headline HoshoCon,” said Gabe Shepherd, Vice President of Global Strategy for Hosho. “The caliber of our performer and speaker lineup speaks to how influential this event will be in the blockchain space.”
The artist himself stated, “HoshoCon will be the first conference to bring music and the blockchain community together in Vegas. I’m beyond excited to be involved, from my performance to speaking at the conference; it will be an unparalleled 3-day experience, and I can’t wait to see everyone there.”
HoshoCon is likely to be a memorable event from start to finish. The event is open to anyone interested in blockchain security. Head over to the conference’s website to register and buy tickets.
