CoinGeek holds a biannual conference that gathers industry leaders, businesses and investors in order to partner them up with blockchain experts and developers who will help them streamline their processes and systems to provide transparency, immutability, security and cost-efficiency. And the date and location for the much-awaited CoinGeek Zurich, the seventh installment of CoinGeek Conference, has finally been set on June 8-10, 2021 at Samsung Hall in Zurich, Switzerland.
Past conferences have been held at strategic places that are known for being centres of finance, like New York, London, Hong Kong, Seoul and Toronto. Zurich is no different as it is world-renowned for its banking and finance and home to over 500 financial institutions. What’s more, just south of Zurich lies Zug, where “Crypto Valley” and the headquarters of Bitcoin Association, a global industry organization that supports Bitcoin SV (BSV) as the original Bitcoin. This time too, Bitcoin Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen will host the conference.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, CoinGeek Zurich will be online and broadcasted live worldwide, just like the previous conferences in New York and London. A jam-packed schedule is packed with speakers who are considered experts in their fields, and blockchain developers who have successfully built their own working platforms on the Bitcoin SV blockchain.
Bitcoin SV, with SV standing for Satoshi Vision, is committed to fulfilling Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto’s original vision for Bitcoin, which includes global adoption just like how the Internet is being used today. Bitcoin SV has successfully restored the original Bitcoin protocol and unlocked unbounded scalability to accommodate big data and low-cost microtransactions.
CoinGeek Zurich’s theme will be about data—how to harness its power for industries, businesses, investors, as well as common individuals, to benefit from it. It is also important to learn how to properly record data on the Bitcoin SV blockchain, which provides immutability, security and transparency. Furthermore, it has been the advocacy of Bitcoin SV to create an economically incentivized system that will allow people to monetize their own data.
In contrast to social media giants Facebook and Twitter that profit billions of dollars off of their users’ data in exchange of using their applications for free, Bitcoin SV wants to give back ownership of data to individuals through the Metanet—a new and better Internet. For instance, users of blockchain-based social media application Twetch own whatever content they post. They pay a very small amount in order for every action they make on the application, like posting, sharing and commenting. In return, they earn whenever their post is shared and commented on. This kind of system gives regular citizens an additional way to earn money—something that is much needed especially during this time of pandemic.
