After visiting Kiev, Ukraine, for the d10e conference in October, 10XTS partner firm CryptoProperties and their CEO, Adam Koehler along with his co-founder, Luke Sistito, were determined to bring a blockchain conference to Cincinnati, Ohio.
Adam and Luke envisioned an event to bring together the blockchain and cryptocurrency community in the region. They partnered with a major blockchain conference organizer BECON Global to launch Day4Crypto.
One problem, he wanted to do it in about 3 weeks timeframe. No problem for Cincinnati. As @TechstarsJohn John Hill once said, “Cincinnati invented the Hustle.”
The conference was held at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, and boasted an international panel of presenters. Over 200 attendees were present, and the day was an incredible opportunity for everyone to learn, exchange ideas, and collaborate.
10XTS CEO, Michael Hiles, participated on a panel with other regional blockchain companies. He focused on the upcoming DDView project and the blockchain opportunities across early stage funding and asset tokenization.
10XTS Chief Technology Officer, John Bentley was present at the event, and engaged in multiple discussions about blockchain development.
The event included representatives from across the spectrum of cryptocurrency and blockchain, as well as legal counsel, financial consultants, and investors.
The success of the event was demonstration of the growing interest in cryptocurrency, initial token offerings, blockchain, and the opportunity for the region to establish itself as a known-player in the space.
Adam and the team are planning another event in the spring of 2018.
