DLT, AI, IOT Space Denizens Swarm to the Blockchain Island for the Malta Blockchain Summit, Nov 1-3, 2018

Honorable Joseph Muscat, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Malta, invites everyone in the DLT, AI, IOT space to the Blockchain Island for the Malta Blockchain Summit, slated for November 1-2, but with activities lasting up to November 3.

The Malta Prime Minister expresses great enthusiasm to meet the delegates who could collaborate with his government and strengthen the island’s ongoing efforts in making Malta the Innovation Island.

Previously, Prime Minister Muscat addressed the general debate of the 73rd Session of the General Assembly of the UN (New York, 25 September – 01 October 2018) where he passionately expressed a way to solve common problems, “Global problems require global solutions, advocating a global approach does not mean you love your country less than others.”

By saying further, “Better solutions can be found together rather than alone,” the Malta Prime Minister sets the tone for the Blockchain Summit. He warns against the attempt to solve problems with limited local solutions which he predicted would lead to “inevitable implosion”.

A roster of 300 sponsors and exhibitors, world-class speakers and a bevy of the cream of the crop among crypto and blockchain enthusiasts will wow participants during the 3-day affair starting November 1.

More than 5,000 delegates were projected to come to the much-talked Event in the Blockchain World. Expect a buzzing expo and riveting discussions about the world-changing potential applications of Technology as well as AI, Big Data, Quantum Technology and IoT.

Among the main speakers are John McAfee (CEO,Luxcore); W. Scott Stornetta (Chief Scientist, First Digital); Miko Matsumura (Founder, Evercoin Exchange) and many more contributors to ongoing research on blockchain innovations.

A Hackathon and a Technology Pitch are part of the attractions as hundreds of investors eagerly await the lineup of this year’s crop of potential blockchain projects and latest working models of innovative, state-of-the-art gadgets.

For the ICO Pitch feature, every selected ICO will get to pitch live (10 minutes) on the grand stage and face a Q&A session from the official jury members and investors and the audience. It is the participant’s choice to use all 10 minutes for the pitch or do a shorter version leave a few minutes for the Q&A. Apart from the investment, the winner is also granted a dedicated marketing video about their ICO provided by our professional ICO marketing partners.

From an initial €129 until 30th September, tickets now cost  €399 from 1st October. Hurry up before they run out of tickets.

As this develops, a second group of migrants has been rescued from a sinking boat close to Malta, the second such case in 24 hours.

The group of 97 migrants was picked up, by the patrol boat sent by the Armed Forces of Malta, 44 nautical miles south of Malta on Sunday afternoon, after their dinghy started taking in water.

The migrants reportedly came from Sudan, Cote d’Ivoire, Somalia, Bangladesh, Mali, Libya, Yemen, Guinea, Morocco, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Senegal.

Late on Sunday, the AFM had also rescued a group of 114 migrants also found in a dinghy off Malta. The government confirmed they would remain in Malta, an act of Mercy from the government, despite protests from the public.

The whole world waits for the turnouts of the Malta Blockchain Summit in the same way that refugees await their uncertain future which lies in a lovely but alien land.

Amidst the glitter and the pomp, usability for worldwide adoption by governments will determine the future of blockchain innovations.
