Linqto to Host VIP Dinner, Day 2 after TNABC

Miami, Florida — Linqto, the popular investment app for pre-IPO companies and Grit Daily News are hosting The Miami Speaker’s Dinner, a chance for industry experts and speakers of The North American Bitcoin Conference to converge and discuss where the industry is headed. 

A private VIP event that requires a ticket for entry, it takes place on January 18th at Capital Grille with a special dish and libations prepared by Chef Noel. Hosts of the event are Karim Nurani, Chief Strategy Officer at Linqto and Jordan French, Executive Editor at Grit Daily News and BlockTelegraph. 

The dinner is held during the North American Bitcoin Conference taking place in Miami from January 17-19 at the James L. Knight Center. The event brings togethers the innovators, thought-leaders, and decision makers of the crypto and blockchain industry. Irina Litchfield, partner at Percival Capital, called it “the unmissable blockchain & crypto conference of 2022” in a social-media post. 

Attendees include Mark Cuban, entrepreneur and billionaire investor, and Harry Yeh, Founder and Managing Partner of Quantum Fintech Group & Founder of BTC Miami. 

“What do Defi, Blockchain, Tokenization NFTs, Web 3.0, and Metaverse have in common?” asked Karim Nurani of Linqto. “A decoupling of the traditional into a community-driven and governed environment that creates efficiencies in a previously controlled highly regulated environment. The need to embrace a growing class of technologies that enable speed, security, and efficiencies in the global environment is scaling at a speed and pace that sometimes seems out of control — we are excited to engage and learn from the outstanding lineup of speakers at the North American Bitcoin Conference. At Linqto we are embracing these changes by keeping it simple for the accredited investor to find early access to these pre-ipo unicorn companies.”
