The biggest Eastern Europe Blockchain and Cryptocurrency conference

1st Cryptospace conference took place in Skolkovo. Moscow on December, 8, 2017 with more than 3 000 delegates. It was the biggest crypto and blockchain event in Russia in 2017.
The conference will be set
in 4 sections:
How and why implement blockchain?
Blockchain is the upgraded version of the Internet and WEB – the Internet 3.0. Regardless of the criticism and doubt about such statement, many experts from NEM, Ethereum and other blockchain CEOs strongly believe that implementing blockchain technology in business and government institutions would drastically change the world order and will discuss it during our conference.
Tokensale (ICO) due diligence
What is ICO? Is it the future of investment, crowdfunding or financial pyramids? And how did ICO become such a hot topic all over the world? This and other topics will be discussed by the representatives from the most successful ICO projects along with the Tokenmarket and ICORating - the "neutral observers" of the cryptoworld.
Crypto-trading is another hot topic from this year. Hardly any other financial investment has brought in such a huge number of money in such a short period of time. Would you be able to make profit on it in 2018? Who controls the cryptomarket? We will have representatives from the largest crypto exchanges (Binance, Bitflyer) and top crypto-traders (Peter Sin, Ashton Addison) who make the market work answer these questions.
Media, PR, marketing in blockchain
Media, PR and marketing are one of the cornerstones of successful blockchain ICO projects. No single large project became successful without some world press or famous bloggers mentioning them in some way or another. Even though these people won't build your business for you, they are the ones that hold the power to raise your project "To The Moon!". We will talk with the representatives of Forbes, Inc, Bitcoin Magazine and journalists from influential media about the importance and usage of Mass Media and marketing in Blockchain.
Vlad Martynov
Advisor, Ethereum Foundation
