Boston, MA – June 13, 2018 – Entrepreneurs and industry enthusiasts from across the globe will gather at the inaugural Brains and Chains conference on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at the InterContinental in New York’s Times Square. Presented by BotChain, the decentralized bot ledger and identity platform, along with Digital Currency Group, the full-service, institutional trading firm focused on digital currencies, providing two-sided liquidity on a daily basis for buyers and sellers, Brains and Chains showcases a remarkable list of leading voices in the artificial intelligence and blockchain communities.

Commenting on the event, Rob May, Co-Founder of BotChain, said “Brains and Chains will be an unrivaled display of the convergence of artificial intelligence and blockchain, and comes at a time where the development of groundbreaking technologies in these two spaces is at a fever pitch. We are both eager and honored to be facilitating this in-depth exploration of two of the most significant technical revolutions of our time, spearheaded by premier minds in both fields.”

Brains and Chains event partners include Breyer Capital, a leading global venture capital and private equity investor, and Glasswing Ventures, a leading venture capital fund focused on enterprise artificial intelligence applications.

“The creation of cryptocurrencies – payments native to protocols and networks – has introduced new possibilities for the future of human and machine interaction. The  emerging intersection of AI with cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technology is a field that has been particularly noisy, and I look forward to participating in Brains and Chains to separate the hype from reality, and to make both of these technologies more accessible and approachable,” said Meltem Demirors, Founder of Athena Capital, Chief Strategy Officer for CoinShares, and keynote speaker at Brains and Chains.

Offering a robust program of speakers, panels, and exhibitions, Brains and Chains is set to provide insights into the trajectory of innovation in artificial intelligence and blockchain, and the convergence of the two. Alongside Demirors, speakers include Matt Turck, Managing Director at FirstMark Capital; Navroop Sahdev, Blockchain Expert and Economist; David Wachsman, CEO at Wachsman; David Namdar, Founder at Galaxy Digital; and many more.
“Brains and Chains presents a phenomenal opportunity to dive into the intersection of AI and blockchain to ensure that this technology is heading in a direction that is both practical and protective to the public as a whole. The wealth of knowledge shared across our speaker lineup is set to present an invaluable reflection on the mutually beneficial nature of these industries,” concluded May.
