The world’s first official blockchain event kicked off in Malta yesterday, with E&S Group Director, Dr Christian Ellul partaking in one of the first panels of the event.

Taking place over three days at the InterContinental, it is the first event of its type to be supported by government and regulatory authorities. The aim behind the event is to allow Malta to further cement its position as the ‘Blockchain Island” and to promote innovation, technology, and opportunities within the industry, and the country. It is hoped that the event will strengthen Malta’s status as a leading centre of excellence for crypto and ICOs, whilst attracting further businesses and entrepreneurs to the island.

Dr Christian Ellul took part in a panel entitled “Malta: A Small Island-Nation with Global Ambition” which focussed on Malta’s place in the world of blockchain and crypto technology, and its power to lead the industry, despite the small size of the country. He was joined by Grahame Salt, Director of Frank Salt Real Estate Group; Imogen Heap, Founder of Mycelia; Rachel Wolfson, Crypto Journalist at Bitcoin Magazine; Dr Abdalla Kablan, Entrepreneur and Fintech Expert; and Silvio Schembri, Parliamentary Secretary in Malta.

The event sold out of tickets weeks in advance and was attended by around 1500 attendees including 75 high-profile industry leaders and experts, and foreign government officials. Other speakers that will take to the podium during the even include Maltese Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat; Minister of Finance, Edward Scicluna; Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao; Wikipedia co-founder, Larry Sanger and many more.
