Imagine travelling 30 years in the future to check out how much Malta (and the rest of the world) has changed. Or even better, imagine if your future self reached out to let you know about all the things to look out for… and all the mistakes not to make.
That’s exactly what was imagined by the people over at the DELTA Summit, who will once again be bringing Malta’s Official Blockchain Summit to the islands later this year. Featuring everything from robots to the best way to make a phonecall from thin air, the video also features everyone’s fature Maltese hearthrob Davide Tucci, who’s still looking mighty fine in 2049.
The DELTA Summit will be bringing some leading figures in technology together to exchange ideas and provide a platform for emerging products to take centre stage… whether that’s an Apple co-founder or a Maltese actor
Taking place at the Malta Fairs & Conventions Centre (MFCC) between the 2nd and 4th October, the summit will feature some amazing speakers and exhibits throughout the week.
With Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak opening up this year’s pre-summit, the 2019 edition will see Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, along with other key experts in blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
Important local political figures in this sector like the international blockchain influencer Parliamentary Secretary Silvio Schembri who is regraded as the architect of the blockchain island concept and MEP (and recently-elected S&D Vice President) Miriam Dalli will also be speaking.
Popular Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, known as CZ, took to the stage at last year’s conference, not only to discuss the impact of blockchain technology on economic growth, but also to compliment Malta on its forward-thinking leadership in this sector. CZ will be making another important and hyped return to 2019’s stage.
The DELTA summit is not only geared toward blockchain and cryptocurrency technology companies, but also looks to discuss cognitive technologies such as AI and IOT, whilst also providing a platform for the growing eSports market.
Award-winning fintech expert and ‘serial entrepreneur’ Dr Abdalla Kablan will of course also be taking to the stage, because what’s a blockchain summit without one of the best specialists of artificial intelligence and machine learning when it comes to complex financial systems? He also happens to have thought of and directed the above featured DELTA Summit time travel video!
Other top speakers include Okcoin CEO Tim Byun, NEO CEO and co-founder Da Hongfei and Spacefund funding partner Rick Tumlinson, who’s literally been called one of the world’s top space ‘visionaries’. This year’s list of speakers is diverse and amazing, and the full list can be found right here.
Meanwhile, Maltese actor Davide Tucci is set to host, after he (and his older self) were the focus of the promo video showing how today’s technology will be the driving force behind solving tomorrow’s problems.
DELTA Summit will be happening between the 2nd and 4th of October, and is set to be the main event of the Malta Tech Week, a week of events showcasing innovation in Malta which the DELTA Summit organisers have partnered with world-leading cryptocurrency exchange OKEx to organise the first such week of its kind in Malta.
