Brock Pierce Plugs “Puertopia” at Futurama Crypto Summit

The 2018 Futura Blockchain Summit held last month in Dubai has been hailed by many guests as the best crypto convention ever, according to Bitcoinist.

The summit brought together more than 300 leaders of the crypto world, including Bitcoin entrepreneur Brock Pierce.  Reportedly it was the largest convention of the cream of crypto society assembled together, including opinion leaders, famous businessmen, investors, and cryptocurrency enthusiasts.

Futurama was pitched as being:

“A  unique, 4-day summit, giving an impressive networking experience. Futurama unites the best crypto leaders and most exciting projects through pre-screening and personally chatting with each presenter since the highest quality of the event and the involvement of each participant can be reached only in this way.”

Brock Pierce entertained the assembled with his views on his Puerto Rico project “Puertopia” as the summit got underway, explaining:

“Our main aim is to create the city of the future. In particular, I’ve been searching for the place where we can do the real effect and provide help. There are a lot of problems in Puerto Rico. 20,000 younglings and ambitious people excited to change the planet and make the difference, they just need a chance to do it. I hope you will find the opportunity to come here and see it with your own eyes. It’s a beautiful place.”

Joshua Hong opened the official summit part with the incredibly warm speech and fellow panelist Miko Matsumura focussed on the role of AI in the decentralized world.  Other top speakers were Nicholas Merten, the founder of DataDash, Michael Suppo, also well-known as Suppoman, running a YouTube channel with more than 147,000 active followers and Evan Luthra, young investor, entrepreneur and motivational speaker who spoke for Google and Blackberry.

One of the most innovative startups at the event was reportedly GoByte, a project that implements a commercial payment and business solution. Exchanges Bithumb, Bitinka, and Coinsbank were also represented in panel discussions.

It wasn’t all about the crypto space.  A convoy of 50 land cruisers descended on the desert as part of a dune safari, hot air balloon flights were the order of the day, as was a star-studded yacht party and a Desert Rose Party which brought the crypto milieu together to relax after the panel events with no expenses spared. Investors mixed together and discussed the big thing, whilst the more active guests danced amongst fellow crypto personalities before fireworks lit up the desert sky.
