SF Blockchain Week Gears Up for the Largest Blockchain Conference on the West Coast

October 3, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 3, 2018--Dekrypt Capital and Noris are proud to announce the launch of SF Blockchain Week, an eight-day blockchain education and adoption conference featuring the top blockchain companies in the world. Already, the event has reached thousands of registered attendees and organizers expect it to be one of the largest blockchain conference on the West Coast.

SF Blockchain Week is a week of educational, consumer, and developer focused events that aim to push the boundaries of local blockchain innovation, which has been welcomed by the San Francisco community. The goal of this week-long, immersive experience is to help the industry reach mainstream adoption through fundamental education and development of projects that matter.

“In the past year, many of the newcomers in the space have been focused almost entirely on price fluctuations rather than the tech that started this excitement in the first place. We see an opportunity now to refocus the space on what matters, by creating a week of educational events focused on technology, and highlighting those who are building it.” -- Ronen Kirsh, Managing Partner of Dekrypt Capital, an organizer of the event.
