Last night in the heart of NYC was held a sold out Blockchain event. New and innovative book by AxionV’s Head of Algorithmic Trading Strategies launched. The event has sold out days in advance with over 150 people in attendance and took place at eBay’s NYC office, showcasing financial blockchain analyst and author of “Blockchain Applications in Finance”, Peter Borovykh, alongside several experts, all of whom discussed blockchain’s current state and its future possibilities.
There was great amount of networking, sharing ideas while having a glass of wine and cold beer. All in all, the event had fantastic turnout with inspiring speakers and was a must see event.
Borovykh himself has recently been featured recently in Business Insider, Inside Bitcoins, MSN, Yahoo Finance, Gizmodo, Broker.org, Smart Trends, Futurism, BTC manager and many others. Over the past few years, he has established himself as one of the premier voices of blockchain and cryptocurrency in the United States, and the release of his book solidifies him as a go-to source for information on blockchain’s developments as they happen, as well as expert predictions of its future. He has also mentioned that he will be teaching a cryptocurrency trading workshop at Blockchain Conference in Boston on September 14th (Details at BostonBC.com).
Morgan Hill appeared on the event’s Q&A panel and answered a number of questions about the AxionV vision, AI technology and how AxionV actually benefits from recent China ICO regulations.
He was joined by Elaine Yi, Founding Partner at Zonvon Ventures, and Gregory Rocco, Editor-in-Chief of investFeed, the first decentralized social media platform.
Elaine Li is a Founding Partner at Zonvon Ventures. Her background in Blockchain and cryptocurrencies started from her highly cited presentations of Crowdfunding in Chinese. Her contribution as chapter editor-in-chief of the Wisdom Crowdfunding book, which was oversubscribed in the crowdfunding stage, and ZonvonVentures’ investments in blockchain startups has made Elaine a noted voice in the community.
She spoke on the state of blockchain startups in China and the current regulation decisions about ICO’s, as well as the cryptocurrency market and how Artificial Intelligence is poised to revolutionize and optimize cryptocurrency trading.
Gregory Rocco is Editor in Chief at investFeed, a post-ICO startup that puts social media on the Blockchain. During their ICO, investFeed raised over five million dollars, helping them on their way to becoming the central source of the Blockchain community. Gregory has a history of many years in the media and has recently shifted gears, becoming a big player in the cryptocurrency and Blockchain space.
He talked about the rise of social investing, the scattered nature of the crypto-community, and how investFeed seeks to create a dedicated network for enthusiasts, projects, and professionals globally in the blockchain space.
Peter discussed in depth about the contents of his new book, giving attendees a sneak preview. According to Borovykh, “The book contains high level use cases of how blockchain will impact the financial industry, good and bad. Spoiler alert: I think it’s almost entirely for good. The disintermediary quality of blockchain makes it a particularly viable option to disrupt the financial industry.”
During the event, Peter met with and answered the questions of both blockchain experts and potential AxionV ICO participants who attended the event, all of whom were excited to read the book and learn more about how blockchain will disrupt the financial industry. The room was buzzing with excitement and all attendees had great opportunities to network with the East Coast’s blockchain community and the new members that the presence of AxionV had brought into the fold. You can grab a copy of his book here.
“We were very happy to see so many new faces attending thanks to Peter’s involvement in AxionV. This has been the biggest event we have held. He was previously a speaker for one of our most successful events, and him being a central voice of the blockchain community has been great to watch.”
