The return of leading virtual conference BlockDown this June 18-19, brings with it exciting new guests, speakers and a new roundtable format where blockchain leaders chat about issues of the day, and you can take part too.

Available to business and VIP ticket holders, the roundtables give guests the chance to join some of the blockchain industry’s leading visionaries to talk about issues of the day.

Between six and eight roundtables are planned, covering topics as diverse as decentralized finance (defi), enterprise blockchain and custody.

Mark Rakhmilevich, senior director of blockchain product management at Oracle, will host a roundtable “Lessons from Blockchain Cloud PaaS implementations in Financial Services and Supply Chain projects: Progress and Challenges,” while Julian Sevillano, senior advisor at IBM’s Promontory Financial Group will host a roundtable discussion on regulation and compliance in the blockchain space.

There will be other roundtables featuring representatives from blockchains Neo and Tomochain, plus leading influencers including Nicholas Merten AKA Datadash.


There are a limited number of slots available for roundtable spaces, with Business Class ticket holders being able to sign up to one roundtable, while VIP ticket holders can sign up to three.

Other VIP benefits include access to exclusive Mastermind sessions that will feature live problem solving from some of the best minds in the business, access to the Sunset Boat Party in the BlockDown 3D virtual space, as well as access to the VIP lounge plus a host of other benefits, while business tickets gives the holder priority to ask questions of speakers, plus provides to previous talks.

Erhan Korhaliller, CEO and founder of blockchain PR agency EAK Digital, and organizer of BlockDown, said the roundtables were a way for business and VIP ticket holders to get the ultimate BlockDown experience.

“BlockDown roundtables give business and VIP ticket holders the chance to have their say in the most important discussions surrounding blockchain and cryptocurrency at the moment, including defi and custody,” he said.

“We like to innovate, and BlockDown has allowed us to develop these unique roundtable events. They are going to be unmissable and offer you the chance to quiz industry leaders directly. Roundtable spaces are strictly limited so remember to book early to avoid disappointment.”


BlockDown 2020 will feature a host of top talent including David Schwartz, CTO of Ripple, Roger Ver, Executive Chairman of Bitcoin.com, Jed McCaleb founder of Stellar, as well as Grammy-nominated artist and crypto visionary Akon, and many more.

The June event will be the second edition of BlockDown, after the successful debut of the format in April. The conference is free to attend, but also features two levels of tickets: for businesses and VIPs.

The virtual world is very similar to ‘The Sims’ computer game, which lets each person create an avatar and use it to interact in the 3D virtual world.

This edition of BlockDown will be live streamed across leading crypto news sites, including Bitcoinist, NewsBTC, Cryptoslate, and CriptoNoticias, making it the world’s most watched virtual blockchain conference with the sites jointly boasting millions of monthly views.
