CoinGeek Conference to highlight new Bitcoin Cash products, opportunities
For anyone that is interested in learning more about Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and where it’s heading, the inaugural CoinGeek Conference is the perfect venue. The conference will be held at the Four Seasons Hong Kong on May 18, with a day full of energized topics related to BCH and the future of cryptocurrency. One of the most popular discussions will center on new products and opportunities that are being introduced for BCH usage.
This portion of the conference will be led by several cryptocurrency experts and heads of business. Alex Agut, co-founder of HandCash, will be on the panel, as will Vin Armani, and Angela Holowaychuk, chief operating officer (COO) for nTrust. VGM Holdings Limited’s Manager of Global Poker, Jonas Odman, will also be on hand to provide details on the incredible advances being made in the crypto-online gaming marriage.
HandCash is a relatively new BCH wallet that relies on Near Field Communication (NFC) to conduct in-person transactions. The wallet enables payments in a matter of seconds, instead of minutes or hours. The system allows for payments to be sent or received through an NCF link, without the need of a destination cryptocurrency address or QR code.
Armani is known well as the host of his own show, the Vin Armani Show, a YouTube vlog where he discusses a variety of subjects, including cryptocurrencies. Armani is also the chief technology officer for cointext.io, a service that allows a BCH holder to send currency to someone through SMS text messages.
nTrust is a BCH wallet company headquartered in Canada. As a graduate of the British Columbia of Technology, Holowaychuk is a subject-matter expert on cryptocurrencies and blockchains. She served as the director of global operations for nTrust from 2011 to January 2015 before becoming the company’s COO.
Better known as the “Godfather of the recreational poker model,” Jonas Odman is an old hat at online poker. He is also a cryptocurrency enthusiast, and will discuss some of issues he has faced in joining the two industries, while providing insight on what the future holds for online gaming and cryptocurrency.
Prior to the panel discussion on BCH use cases, Centbee CEO Lorien Gamaroff will talk about “What Consumers and Merchants Need for a Bitcoin Cash World.” Gamaroff is South Africa’s foremost blockchain expert. He has been invited around the world to speak on digital currencies and distributed ledgers and their benefits for emerging economies. Gamaroff has addressed the IMF, World Bank, FBI and Commonwealth Secretariat, the South African Reserve Bank, as well as a host of banking professionals and attorneys general throughout the world. He offers insight and guidance to business executives and advises government on blockchain technologies and their implications.
An after-party courtesy of Calvin Ayre, founder and owner of CoinGeek.com, will follow the inaugural CoinGeek Conference. This event is poised to be a game-changer for merchant adoption and BCH education. Since its inception, BCH has represented a truer form of Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision of a peer-to-peer electroni cash system, offering faster transaction speeds, larger block sizes and lower fees.
Registration for the conference is now open with a 50% discount for those paying in BCH, but credit card payments are also welcome.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.
Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
