Get all the details you need to make the most at Futurist 2022!
Futurist is one of Canada’s largest and most high-profile blockchain events of the year! The event runs from August 9th to 10th in Toronto with a brilliant lineup of keynote speakers! At this event, speakers are prepped and ready to inspire the large crowd of attendees made up of startup companies, investors, researchers, and many other crypto enthusiasts eager to build the future!
The event is organized by a Toronto-based event management and marketing company, Untraceable, which has successfully organized Web 3 and crypto events since 2013. This year’s conference is suspected to be their largest event and better than ever before!
At their last live, in-person blockchain conference, they catered to over 3000 attendees, and Futurist is expected to surpass this with over 5000 attendees predicted! At this conference, ticket holders will be able to get an inside look at the latest developing technologies, discuss Web3 trends and predictions, and learn from so many talented crypto individuals.
One of the most notable Keynote speakers is Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum. He will be speaking at ETH Toronto, an event that runs in tandem during the conference. With a keynote speaker as passionate as Buterin, this poses an amazing networking opportunity for the Telos community.
Not only will we be learning from this intelligent industry pioneer, but we will also be able to share the word of our network, Telos, and help foster the growth and awareness of our ecosystem with like-minded, passionate individuals across North America!
You bet Telos community members will be present and will attend the Futurist conference! Block producers Telos Culture and Detroit Ledger Technologies will be in attendance as community partners! They will be collaborating with members of the Telos community and Telos Foundation individuals such as Chris Barnes to ensure Telos is well represented at this event.
