We were thrilled to present the Unchained Conference in Hong Kong. On November 6th, we gathered more than 100 elite blockchain experts from around the world to explore cutting-edge blockchain technology innovations.

Our conference was uniquely purposed to help guests connect with blockchain industry leaders and innovative cryptopreneurs. Tech disruptors, payment processor experts, investors and other thought leaders were all in attendance –  and with just 120 exclusive seats, the event was an intimate opportunity to connect without all the noise of a traditional conference.

The Unchained Conference brought together industry leaders to discuss a range of topics in the blockchain realm – from how the technology can save the entertainment industry, to how it will disrupt funding and investment. Throughout our conference, discussions and presentations by several elite blockchain experts captivated the audience.

Our own Founder, President, Matej Michalko, dove deep into blockchain as he discussed a few of the many use cases which have been discovered. His vast experience and understanding of blockchain were on display in his presentation of our proprietary blockchain technology, DCore, and the crowd shared his enthusiasm about the topic.
