The London CryptoCurrency Show 2018

Investor Conferences’ first cryptocurrency event for the private investor

Saturday, 14th April 2018; Novotel London West

The world of money and finance is experiencing one of the most radical transformations of the last 100 years, with digital assets paving the way for a plethora of alternative payment systems, as well as a burgeoning ecosystem of networks and channels that herald the coming of a cashless, decentralised economy.
With such a dramatic upheaval of the financial status quo, traditional investors – and everyday consumers – face some interesting and, at times, overwhelming choices. Over 1000 different cryptocurrency coins have been issued over the past decade, with more and more tokens going on the market every single day. Trading, it seems, has acquired a sci-fi edge.
The London CryptoCurrency Show aims to de-mystify the world of digital assets through a curated exhibition of industry insiders, coin issuers, and exchanges, backed up by a cross-section of traditional investors and market specialists. By bridging the gap between the fiat world and the cryptocurrency realm, our speakers and panellists will guide delegates through everything from mining coins to spotting dodgy ICOs and planning their trading & investment strategies accordingly.

“Bitstocks is proud to be the headline sponsors for the launch of The London CryptoCurrency Show. Considering we were the City of London’s first cryptocurrency advisory firm, we think it is only fitting that we use this opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise in this often misunderstood and widely untapped market. People are definitely more aware of cryptocurrency than when we began in 2014, and the creation of The London CryptoCurrency Show is proof that the movement to financial sovereignty is gaining broader interest and more mainstream acceptance.” – Michael Hudson, Founder and CEO of Bitstocks, a cryptocurrency market advisory and investment firm, located in the heart of London.

Iconiq Lab said, “The London CryptoCurrency Show does an amazing job of bringing together a plethora of blockchain and crypto ventures. The Iconiq Lab team and startups are really looking forward to partake in this experience and contribute further to it. We look forward to meeting you on Stand No A3.”
The London CryptoCurrency Show is offering delegates a choice of over 6 panel sessions, cryptoinvestment workshops, a wide range of free seminars, debates, and interviews throughout the day, as well as a CryptoCafe catering area, an interactive showcase theatre, and dedicated ICO Central.
Sponsored by Bitstocks – a London-based cryptocurrency advisory firm – the London CryptoCurrency Show is designed to educate current and prospective investors about the technology and rationale behind blockchain systems, cryptocurrency trading, and digital asset exchanges. Perfect for those seeking to modernise their portfolio and diversify their holdings, the show promises to be an eyeopening experience for anyone looking to get ahead of the pack.

“With so much interest around cryptocurrency, the implications for investors could be farreaching. As organisers of the existing London Investor Show, we wanted to create an event specifically with the aim of educating and informing existing traders and investors about cryptocurrency. Bringing together some new, and many trusted speakers to try and cut through a lot of the hype around cryptocurrency, and really explore the future and the implications for serious investors”. Lisa Campbell, Managing Director, Investor Conferences (UK) Ltd, Organisers of the London CryptoCurrency Show.

Can Blockchain Technology Survive Without Cryptocurrencies?

The recent fluctuations in Bitcoin and altcoin prices has resuscitated the debate on cryptocurrencies functioning as a true store of value. After rising about $20,000, this dip in price had seen the most popular cryptocurrency slump to almost $6,000 before rising again and then trading around the $8,400 region as at the time of writing. Rising and falling, and rising again has been one of the usual characteristics of the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency price trend. However, probably due to the increased level of awareness and the literal monetary value of the current price dip, the anti-crypto campaigners found a reason to make loud their criticism of the technology. Delivering his speech in London on February 8 2018, Yves Mersch, Member of the Executive Board of the ECB noted that the wild fluctuations in the value of virtual currencies (VCs) mean that businesses pricing in VCs could find themselves with a large and detrimental gap between their actual price and their optimal price. He explains that when there is considerable uncertainty around how many goods and services an asset can buy in the future, or indeed whether it can be used to purchase anything at all, the asset becomes a poor store of value.
