Decentral & the Toronto Ethereum Community Bring Leading Figures in Decentralized Technology & Fintech to Speak at DEC_TECH 2.0 at MaRS Discovery District in Toronto
Decentral and the Toronto Ethereum Meetup Group are pleased to announce the second Decentralized Technology (DEC_TECH) event, to be held in Toronto on July 14, 2015. Through a partnership with MaRS Discovery District, the event will be hosted at the MaRS Centre. As Fintech and blockchain technologies gain in popularity, DEC_TECH 2.0 brings together leading entrepreneurs to discuss the imminent release of Ethereum, the buying and selling of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in Canada, and venture capital in the decentralized technology space.
“Over 300 people attended our first DEC_TECH event in March,” said Anthony Di Iorio, President and Founder of Decentral and host of DEC_TECH 2.0. “Awareness is growing rapidly, and we couldn’t be happier to have the chance to hear about these developments directly from some of the field’s leading innovators.”
In the months leading up to its release, DEC_TECH 2.0 is excited to showcase Ethereum, a platform where applications can be built and run on a decentralized network. Presentations and panels will feature Ethereum founders Vitalik Buterin, Joseph Lubin and Anthony Di Iorio talking about the technology.
As it becomes increasingly easy to buy Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in Canada, with more options available than ever before, DEC_TECH 2.0 will hear from four speakers working at the forefront of the digital currency exchange industry: Gerald Cotton (QuadrigaCX), Jaron Lukasiewicz (Coinsetter & Cavirtex), Virgile Rostand (Coinsquare) and Jamie Robinson (QuickBT).
Bringing a venture capitalist’s perspective on decentralized technology is Tally Capital’s Matthew Roszak, an active investor in the space. "The influx of VC funding in Fintech and the blockchain space is growing rapidly," says Adam Nanjee, Head of Financial Technology, MaRS. "We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Decentral to foster Toronto's leading cryptocurrency and Decentralized Tech community."
