They expect a range of delegates including technology experts, entrepreneurs, investors, bankers, students, regulators, developers and traders, and they hope to build a strong community in the Ukraine of Blockchain advocates.
The website states: ‘Our mission is to make the event accessible for as many people as possible while providing the right level of organization — we’re providing food and coffee breaks during the event, access to the after-party, videos of all the talks, networking, and much more.’
They also stress that the conference will give an independent voice to the blockchain community. There are no paid talks and they don’t promote ICOs. It is intended to be an educational and networking event so speakers are encouraged to give an informative, helicopter view of their experience.
As a not-for-profit organization, they are keen to bring value to the community as well as keeping ticket prices low.
