The BEF 2018 Will Make ‘Blockchain Official and Widespread’, Says LATOKEN Founder

Blockchain is disrupting the way companies make business. This distributed ledger technology not only provides a safe and trusted network for new digital coins, but it also can served as back-end technology for multiple industrial sectors without compromising their security and decentralization.

In recent times, and through blockchain-based platforms, many new start-ups and companies have come up with outstanding ideas to breakthrough established sectors such health or energy to make them more efficient and secured, although it is on the financial facet where blockchain is in the spotlight for millions of investors and decision-makers.

To glimpse what blockchain is capable to do and where the recent innovations are taking the technology to, LATOKEN, a crypto exchange and multi-asset tokenization platform, has announced its third event dedicated to bridging blockchain with the global economy: Blockchain Economic Forum (BEF).

This time, the event will take place in the technological heart of the world, San Francisco (USA) on June 16-19, 2018 and it will be hosted in San Francisco Marriott Marquis venue. 

This year’s event is built on the success of past experiences in Singapore and New York. In those occasions the BEF attracted over 1,600 investors, entrepreneurs, politicians, decision-makers, and opinion leaders. Among them we can highlight the likes of Vicente Fox (former president of Mexico), Reese Jones (Singularity University), Jean Claude Donato (Nikaia Ventures), Miko Matsumura (Evercoin), Peter Bergstrom (BitBlock Ventures), Daniel Heller (ex-IMF), Hanna Halaburda (Bank of Canada, NYU), Toni Lane Casserly (Cointelegraph), and Nicholas Merten (DataDash, 285k+ YouTube subscribers).

“Blockchain Economic Forum is designed to empower pioneers to find ideas, investments, partners, and friends. Together we will make crypto official and widespread in order to automate capital markets, money and states. This will save billions of working hours each year. Blockchain can automate elections, courts, state finances and make them more transparent. As a result, 6 billion people will overcome corruption to catch up with the golden billion. This is how emerging economies may grow by $400 trillion. At the same time, the costs of state services in developed countries will likely be halved.”, says Valentin Preobrazhenskiy, CEO of LATOKEN and Chair of BEF Organizing Committee.

BEF SF is a four-day event that is expected to be attended by over 2,000 participants, including many leaders from the world of technology, business, media and politics.
