Ryan X. Charles, the cryptocurrency engineer who founded Yours.org, will be on hand at the inaugural CoinGeek Conference on May 18. The conference will bring together the best and brightest in the cryptocurrency industry, and is the perfect venue to learn about Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and the evolution of cryptocurrency. Charles will be providing a presentation on “Making Bitcoin Cash Mainstream,” designed to provide an overview on how to incorporate BCH payments in a retail environment.

Charles studied astrophysics at Washington University. He began working for BitPay in 2014 as a software engineer in Atlanta before being bumped to lead developer in the company’s San Francisco office. He was also a teacher at the Blockchain University in San Francisco, traveling around the globe educating companies on blockchains and cryptocurrencies.

In August 2015, Charles launched Yours.org with co-founder Clemens Ley. The company works “to improve the quality of content on the internet by getting people paid for creating and discovering good content.” Yours.org’s mission is to provide a peer-to-peer payment system that rewards authors for their content, eventually weeding out clickbait, fake news and spam.

The first-ever CoinGeek Conference is designed to give attendees a unique perspective on BCH. Merchants, visionaries and investors will all be present, providing an array of presentations and panel discussions on the importance of BCH in the retail and eCommerce environments. The conference will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Four Seasons Hong Kong. An after party, hosted by cryptocurrency investor and Antiguan entrepreneur Calvin Ayre, will be held beginning at 9 p.m. following the conference.

In addition to Charles, the conference will see participation by other prominent cryptocurrency figures, such as Jimmy Nguyen, Roger Ver and Dr. Craig Wright. For anyone in the crypto industry, the CoinGeek Conference is a must-attend event this year.

Registration for the conference is now open with a 50% discount for those paying in BCH, but credit card payments are also welcome.
