Block Live Asia is a lifestyle blockchain festival that is focussed on interactively educating the public on blockchain technology. The two-day festival includes panel discussions and keynote speeches by over 60 guest speakers, and 50 exhibitors, creative installations, experiential zones and retail booths curated by ExpatFairs Singapore across the 45,000 square feet exhibition hall.

With renowned names such as DASH, TenX, bitcoin.com, Consentium, Digifinex and BlockON Group on board as sponsors and partners, Block Live Asia is set to give attendees a whole new experience into the blockchain space. Unlike typical blockchain conferences which are ticketed at high prices and catered towards blockchain professionals, Block Live Asia is open to the public with free entry.

Attendees can expect authentic, constructive and necessary discussions about real work that is being done in the blockchain space through a mix of conference and lifestyle activities, such as keynote speeches, panel discussions, a premiere screening of documentary “Trust Machine”, creative installations, interactive zones and retail booths.

Attendees will get the chance to greet some of biggest change-makers of the blockchain industry players; including Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com, Garrett Jin, Co-Founder of BitForex, Kiana Shek, Co-Founder of DigiFinex and more. Those who are not ready to learn about blockchain can take Instagram-worthy photos at several installation zones, play interactive games, attend free workshops by Singapore Bitcoin Club, NewCampus and CoinMarketCap, or shop at the retail zone curated by Hoolah.
