Innovative blockchain technology meets Vegas during the inaugural World Crypto Con where investors, businesses, and the public can get a taste of the future.
The Aria Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada will be hosting the first World Crypto Con where exhibitors, companies, and attendees can experience new innovations and ideas revolving around blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. The conference is said to be the first experiential and immersive event delivering more interactivity and engagement than past crypto or blockchain conferences. The World Crypto Conference in part with Decent.bet will host a Blockchain Poker Tournament to combine interactivity and blockchain technology in a tangible manner and display the technology in action in real-time.
The conference has promised the attendance of several leading Poker stars, however, guests have yet to be confirmed. Rumors of Phil “The Poker Brat” Hellmuth, Antonio Esfandiari, and Daniel Negreanu attending have risen due to the players close living proximity to Las Vegas, with the exception of Phil Hellmuth whose attendance is rumored due to his relationship with Decent.bet. Other guest attendees who will be speaking at the event are from the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry such as Charlie Lee, Bobby Lee, and Brock Pierce.
The conference will last the duration of 3 days starting October 31st and host over 150 exhibitors and 75 speakers. For industry leaders, the World crypto Conference presents an opportunity to transform Las Vegas strip for three days into a global stage for blockchain and cryptocurrency. Therefore, innovators and exhibitors will be putting their best products and services out there for attendees to engage with.
The World Crypto Conference intends to link the gaming world, which is vital to Las Vegas, to the crypto world by showing progressive applications of blockchain and crypto technology in a consumable manner. However, this technology is not making its debut, as numerous bitcoin poker platforms currently exist. Blockchain supported poker utilizes random number generators to shuffle decks and draw cards leading to a fairer game which more and more poker players are beginning to prefer.
Blockchain-based gambling provides security on a decentralized platform which may seem scary to some but not all. In fact, a trend toward decentralized products and services has grown. Blockchain gaming is providing fairness through the requirement of licensed hosts to have their game technology tested for accuracy and true randomness and appealing to more players due to faster payouts and anonymity.
The event is sure to attract high rollers, companies in Las Vegas, and celebrities. Over 5,000 admission tickets were purchased, priced at $899 for general 3-day admission and $2,499 for Ultra VIP admission for 3-days.
