Previous CoinGeek events have been held in New York, Seoul, Hong Kong, London (twice), and Toronto, and now the event moves to the heart of the traditional financial sector of Europe, Zurich, between the 8th and the 10th of June.
While this is the 7th CoinGeek conference, it is the 2nd time esports have had their own, bespoke, panel. There is a firm belief that blockchain technology can grow the reputation of esports by providing transparency in gameplay.
Zurich is the heartland of the European banking world and will be the latest venue for the seventh CoinGeek Conference. Just south of Zurich, known as “Crypto Valley”, Zug is the home of the Bitcoin Association whose Founding President, Jimmy Nguyen, will once again host the conference. As a result, Switzerland will now further enhance its reputation, as not only a banking and financial hub, but also, the European HQ of the digital asset space by playing host to CoinGeek VII.
In October 2020, despite the global pandemic, CoinGeek managed to broadcast over 90 speakers – all of which were delivered live, not pre-recorded – over three days from studios in London and New York for a unique hybrid live and virtual event experience. Earlier in 2020 CoinGeek London saw over 1,000 attendees with a live stream seen by over 30,000 viewers.
