Start-ups join the Blockchain Expo North America line-up

Blockchain Expo is making its North American debut later this month, taking to Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, on November 29-30, 2017.

The event will be hosting a conference track dedicated to ICOs, tokens and cryptofinance. On November 29, gold and ultimate pass holders will be invited to hear from industry leaders, discussing regulation, creating an attractive ICO proposition, and the future of crypto.
