At the first day of the event on August 20, industry experts discussed major issues, including the new perspectives offered by the technologies and the question of interaction between major financial institutions and crypto, as well as the role of a proper regulatory approach to bring on the “blockchain future.”

Specifically, BlockShow speakers expressed their stance at a number of panels such as “Building Democracy on Blockchain,” “Wall Street vs Crypto,” “How Proper Regulatory Development Can Lead us to the Blockchain Future,” and others.

Today, August 21, BlockShow will gather major industry experts such as Dr. Nouriel Roubini, the CEO of Roubini Macro Associates who predicted the global financial crisis of 2008, Celsius founder Alex Mashinsky, and legal advisors Mike Miglio and Leslie Katz.

The second day of the event features closely studied topics in the industry such as the benefits of crypto, crypto regulations in the U.S., payment technologies, and crypto-based games, as well as one of the most recently discussed questions of a Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund (ETF). Today’s event will also feature the BlockShow Oscar awards ceremony, where startups are selected by an expert jury based on the originality of their projects.

The first day of BlockShow featured a panel about democracy and blockchain, where the panelists were largely in agreement about blockchain’s potential to transform the concept of democracy by enabling higher levels of accountability and engagement.
