Alt Convention, a three-day business, finance, and technology conference focusing on FinTech innovation will be held from October 8-10, 2015, in the beautiful resort city of Batumi, Georgia. Ranked 15th out of 189 countries for ease of doing business, Georgia boasts a stable, growing economy with forward-thinking leadership, in the heart of an emerging market that is rapidly becoming a hub for developers and entrepreneurs.
“Because of our own first-hand insight into the business, IT, and FinTech climate in Georgia, we decided to host Alt Convention. The legislative and banking climate, and growth opportunities in this emerging market are staggering,” said David Ruebush, CEO, Global Bitbillions Group Incorporated.
The early speakers list so far includes Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Bitcoin evangelist, author and entrepreneur; Charles Hoskinson, developer and mathematician; Jonas Kjellberg, co-creator of Skype and co-founder of Gear Up Ventures; Adam Krellenstein and Evan Wagner of Counterparty; Jon Matonis, Founding Board Member of the Bitcoin Foundation and Chief Forex Dealer at VISA; Pamela Morgan of Empowered Law and Third Key Solutions; Uri Levine, co-creator of Waze; Tatiana Moroz of Tatiana Coin and Crypto Media Hub, and Lilia Vershinina of Kraken, to name a few. Many more speakers are listed on the Alt Convention website; additional speakers will be added in the upcoming months.
Geared toward business owners, innovators, entrepreneurs, developers, government officials, venture capitalists, and anyone else with an interest in new financial technologies, the event will feature hands-on workshops, conference sessions, round-table discussions, panels, an exhibit hall, networking events, cultural performances, and a hackathon.
Alt Convention events will address ways that Bitcoin, next-generation blockchain, and other FinTech developments can disrupt various sectors such as law and finance, while exploring growth opportunities around the world, especially in emerging markets like Asia
