This is EMURGO’s second yearly participation in one of the world’s largest blockchain event, the Japan Blockchain Conference (JBC). During last year’s conference, EMURGO’s participation was awarded with the Grand Prix, enabling EMURGO to participate this time around in 2019 with a premium booth, as well as speaking engagements. Check out EMURGO’s JBC sneak peek video now below:
EMURGO showcased the company for a full two straight days at JBC with engaging speeches and a dynamic booth. EMURGO’s CEO Ken Kodama, CTO Nicolás Arqueros, CIO Manmeet Singh, and IOHK’s CEO Charles Hoskinson took the stage on the second day.
At a panel discussion, EMURGO made a major announcement regarding a strategic investment into leading digital merchant bank Y2X as the anchor investor. Y2X is the leading digitally-friendly merchant and investment bank, helping entrepreneurs raise capital for expansion through Securities Token Offerings and other means. Cardano will become the protocol of choice for Y2X and its portfolio firms, especially in the field of regulated STOs, therefore providing an increased value add to ADA holders. After the various speaking sessions, we attracted a lot of interested attendees to our booth! Thank you for your support!
It was EMURGO’s first conference since we underwent our rebranding efforts. Our team was very excited to introduce the new and global EMURGO branding as well as our new projects to visitors! As part of our rebranding and as a thank you for people who followed our accounts, we gave away a ton of goodies including stickers and tote bags to our fans. We were delighted to see everyone carrying our EMURGO tote bags around. We received a lot of awesome feedback on the Cardano ecosystem, Yoroi Wallet, as well as our novelty goods! Meanwhile, more than 230 visitors have signed up for our newsletter during the event!
