UNBLOCK Community
conference
Renovating the crypto community for an unblocked future

The event is aimed to cover the topics that are connected with community value for businesses and the blockchain industry.

The first day of the event will be focused on the concept of community; what it is, how tokens can support and motivate the community, what the communities' role in the crypto industry is, how the community can be estimated, etc. For this part, we will bring the best experts from universities, funds, research laboratories, and some top projects with the community actively involved in product development and token support.

The second day is dedicated to more practical questions connected with community management. We are to discuss the instruments, strategies and communication channels during all project stages: development, pre-sale, ITO, post-ITO. Top consulting agencies, the founders of the projects who have passed all four stages, exchanges, and funds will be covered in this part.

Our Partners
This is an amazing opportunity to approach worldwide experts, ask them the most challenging questions, and get honest answers all while having a glass of wine at the after party. For instance, I am looking forward to know about the dark side of trading. What are exchanges trying to hide? What are the real rules of listing and delisting?
Povilas Kazlauskas
Visitor
"Blockchain technologies are going to transform many parts of the economy as we know it today, thanks to open architecture, decentralization, and the smart contract feature. However, there are a lot of scum in the industry. I expect the speakers to have enough courage to enlighten the question."
Laura
Journalist
"I am really proud that we managed to get confirmations from the greatest minds. My favorite among the event speeches is about security and asset-backed tokens. We are looking forward to seeing you!"
