Consensus 2019 attracted thousands of global talents, including blockchain industry leaders, Wall Street giants, Fortune 500 executives, along with partners and sponsors such as Deloitte, IBM, Microsoft, Ledger, eBay, Santander and CME Group.
GXChain, a top-3 public chain in China used its participation at Consensus 2019 to make its voice heard for the first time at a large-scale international finance, science and technology conference. Alex Ding, GXChain’s Director of International Business, delivered a speech titled, “Opportunities and Challenges for the Block Chain Industry of China and North American in the Next Five Years”, he mentioned in his speech: “With hundreds of projects underway, China & U.S. are reportedly leading the world in Blockchain Industry. It wouldn’t take much time for the Chinese and American markets to
adopt blockchain nationally. Despite the fact the blockchain technology has great potential to be the infrastructure of the Internet in the future, it is facing lots of technical challenges both in China and the U.S.” Alex also took the opportunity to announce that GXChain has officially launched the North American Developer Competition.
