Tracy Leparulo, CEO and founder of Untraceable and organizer of the conference says, “As the birthplace of Ethereum and home to hundreds of top blockchain and crypto projects, Toronto has been quietly establishing its position as a top blockchain hub. Blockchain Futurist Conference is proud to headline Canadian Blockchain Week and showcase the fantastic work that crypto and blockchain projects are doing here in Canada. With the conference, our goal is to break down the silos within the blockchain industry and foster conversations that will further progress for all players involved. By integrating the use of crypto throughout the conference and using crypto-integrated payments to support local vendors, we hope to continue to inspire our community, as well as promote a substantive dialogue about future growth in Canada.”

As a crypto-immersive event, Blockchain Futurist Conference will present a one-of-a-kind marketplace, hosted by Bunz, featuring local vendors from the Toronto area. In an effort to showcase the real-world use cases of cryptocurrency, Bunz will be doing an airdrop of Bunz tokens (BTZ), which participants will be able to use at the marketplace to purchase a wide variety of products including refreshments, local artisanal products, merchandise, and artwork. In addition, the event will be sponsored by Canadian-based blockchain media company SLATE (a blockchain based entertainment utility protocol) and host of the official closing party at Cabana Bar on August 16. SLATE founders will be appearing on the main stage explaining how blockchain can provide much needed solutions to the entertainment industry and how SLATE can help drive mainstream adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrency.

Tracy Leparulo adds, “We want to take this opportunity during Canadian Blockchain Week to explore real world applications and existing use cases of blockchain, and that kicks off with the Global Cloud and Blockchain Summit. The invitation-only event, headlined by Ethereum co-founder and founder & CEO of Jaxx & Decentral, Anthony Di Iorio, will explore how C-suite executives and influencers from both industries — as well as their companies — can become among the first movers in blockchain. The conversation will transition seamlessly to Blockchain Futurist Conference where we will see the use of crypto fully in action.”

SLATE founder and CEO Michael Moyal says, “Being local to the Toronto area, we at Slate are ecstatic to have the unique opportunity to engage in a thoughtful discussion with industry leaders about the future of blockchain. The past decade has brought about exponential growth in the pursuit of technological advancement, and this continues as we look to blockchain and cryptocurrencies to radically transform our daily lives. Through the Blockchain Futurist Conference, we're excited to partner with Tracy and her team to highlight Canada's role in this discussion, and we look forward to the opportunity to close out the conference at Slate's Cabana Party.”
