Melbourne to Host Major Crypto Convention this November

The Melbourne Convention And Exhibition Centre will open its doors on November 11-12, 2023, for a two-day conference of blockchain wizardry. With more than 15,000 expected attendees, 200+ sponsors, and 250+ speakers gracing 8 stages, this convention is positioning itself as a must-attend event for anyone immersed in or curious about the world of crypto and blockchain.

Now in its third year, the conference has reached a certain level of maturity, evidenced by Coinjar committing as a partner for the second consecutive year. From the looks of it, this annual soiree is growing not just in size but also in its influence and relevance within the industry.

Headlining the event is an impressive list of speakers. From Eowyn Chen, CEO of Trust Wallet, to Justin Sun, the mind behind Tron, the stage is set for a blend of insights and revelations. Let’s not forget Michael Saylor of MicroStrategy and Sunny Lu from VeChain who are also expected to share their wisdom. These thought leaders represent just a tip of the iceberg, indicating the calibre of talent and expertise attendees can anticipate.

So, what’s the price for a chance to mingle with the crypto elite? General admission will set you back $252, a fee that includes a 2-day pass and a plethora of attractions. Attendees can enjoy keynote sessions, general networking, and access to Australia’s largest NFT Gallery, among other activities. If you’re willing to splash out $307, you’ll also get an invitation to the Premium After Party complete with an open bar. For those with deeper pockets, a VIP Whale Pass is available for $2585, offering a smorgasbord of perks including gourmet catering and massages, apart from fast-track entry and exclusive networking opportunities. And for the budget-conscious, a promotional code “CryptoEvents” can shave 20% off your ticket price.

Once you’ve picked your ticket, it’s time to decide how you’ll divvy up your time. The Keynote Theatre will host discussions around the future of the crypto and blockchain sector, while the Blockchain Theatre delves into the minutiae of DeFi, Metaverse, Web3, and more. The Institutional Theatre aims to bridge the gap between traditional and blockchain finance, discussing institutional investment and regulations. On the B2B side, blockchain’s impact on businesses of all sizes will be examined.

But it’s not all talk. The event has several hands-on opportunities for attendees. Workshops range from beginner-level basics to advanced smart contract development. For startups looking for funding and exposure, the Whale Lab is the perfect platform. A Shark Tank-esque competition, it allows budding blockchain enterprises to pitch their ideas to a discerning panel of judges.

Networking is another key focus. Attendees can look forward to rubbing shoulders with industry insiders through multiple networking zones and after-parties. Industry meetups will further facilitate targeted interactions.

For a country where the crypto and blockchain landscape is burgeoning, this event could be the tipping point that catapults Australia into the big leagues of this disruptive technology. The blend of international and local speakers will offer a well-rounded view, providing both a global and an Aussie perspective on the developments in the crypto world.

This convention is shaping up to be the Mecca for all things blockchain and crypto. It promises to be a nexus of learning, networking, and possibly the incubator for the next big idea in blockchain. Melbourne, for those two days, will not just be a city down under; it will be the city that understands the future is blockchain.
