Top Things To Look Out For At This Week's DELTA Summit In Malta

Mmm whatcha say?

Hotel

Blockchain continues to dominate global headlines, and if you've been meaning to get in on what the fuss is all about, or want to establish a foothold in it before everyone else gets on board, then this week is perfect for you. All you have to do is head to Paceville's Intercontinental Hotel for the DELTA Summit 2018, Malta's Official Blockchain Summit.

The three-day summit will feature some of the world’s major players in the industry for what will be the country’s first ever official blockchain and digital innovation summit. It's set to be big, the summit itself is expecting over 3000 attendees.

Here are five awesome things to look out for at the summit.

1. Chatting with Imogen Heap

You read that right; British Grammy award-winning superstar Imogen Heap will be participating in a fireside chat on Wednesday, the opening evening of DELTA.

Back in 2014, Imogen Heap founded Mycelia, a flourishing music industry ecosystem through which she released the first song to ever use smart contracts on blockchain.

2. And that's just the tip of a list of speakers featuring the industry's crème de la crème

Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, parliamentary secretary Hon. Silvio Schembri (who has been entrusted with blockchain regulation) and several other top government officials and lawyers will also be there to speak about Malta’s plans to regulate the industry. As far as the international guests go, the list as star-studded as it gets.

Speakers include Wikipedia’s co-founder Larry Sanger and renowned Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper, to Binance founder Changpeng Zhao, Evercoin founder Mike Matsumara, and Malta’s own award-winning Fintech and AI expert Dr. Abdalla Kablan.

4. An opportunity to mingle with the best in the business

With investors there aplenty, this summit will be the Promised Land for keen businesspeople looking to get a foothold in the crypto world.

There will also be a startup pitch competition to find companies with the next big ideas to disrupt the blockchain space.
