Deconomy Forum to be held in Seoul this April

Developer and author of Mastering Bitcoin, Andreas Antonopoulos, along with Buterin Vitalik will be facing blockchain’s primary antagonist Nouriel Roubini who is more affectionately known as ‘Dr Doom’ at Deconomy 2019. In the mix will also be the creator of Pretty Good Privacy Philip Zimmermann, founder of ConsenSys Joseph Lubin, CTO of the world’s largest blockchain consortium R3 Richard Gendal Brown, and of course CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao and many more on April 4th and 5th.

Blockchain-focused digital media company Blockinpress is glad to reintroduce Deconomy (Distributed Economy) 2019 after a successful iteration last year called “Crypto Currency and Blockchain, and the future of Distributed Economy” that saw more than 2,200 attendees mingling with global industry leaders.

The forum held six sessions over the course of 2 days and had over 80 speakers including the father of Cypherpunk & Cryptography David Chaum, Bitcoin developer Craig Wright, and CEO of Bitcoin.com Roger Ver.

This time, it’s bigger with a roster line-up of speakers who are at the top of the game in their respective fields of expertise.

In addition to the abovementioned headliners, representatives and experts from various government agencies and respected academic institutions will also be present. They include the head of the IMF’s Resident Representative Office in Singapore, Jochen M. Schmittmann, Research Advisor in Funds Management and Banking Department of Bank of Canada, Francisco Rivadeneyra, Associate Professor and Co-Director of Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Smart Contracts at Cornell University, Emin Gün Sirer, and Gina C. Pieters of University of Chicago, Department of Economics.


“The tickets were sold out last year and we had crowds of blockchain aficionados and enthusiast at the booths trying to get in to listen to the speakers,” says Deconomy organizer Jeff Paik.  “We tried our best this year to accommodate more people to take part in deep discussions of the present and future of the blockchain by increasing the venue and lowering prices.”

The forum will discuss the ‘Financial Applications of Blockchain’ and the ‘Blockchain Technology’. The speakers and panels will discuss the blockchain technology that is disrupting and leading changes in legacy industries as well as the present and future of cryptocurrency. The forum will also take a deep dive into the synergies and opportunities that presents itself through cooperative efforts across nations, and the impact distributed technology will have on the global economy.  

Ticket prices have been lowered this year to encourage more participants to attend. Jangchung Arena in Seoul is capable of accommodating 4,000 people at a time, which is twice the size of last year’s venue.

You can now purchase the tickets to the event at the Deconomy website. A Full Pass   grants access to exhibition booths, access to keynote speakers and panels will cost US$99. An Exhibition Pass with access to the exhibition booths will cost US$10, and a full access VIP Pass will cost US$999 until February 28th. The Full Pass and VIP Pass includes lunch.
