NEW YORK – May 28, 2018 –  Innovators, investors, legislators, fintech regulators, leading venture capitalists, and industry thought leaders will gather on June 28-29, 2018 at the Sunborn Hotel, a 5-star luxurious yacht hotel in Gibraltar for this much-awaited conference.

LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake is one of the keynote speakers. More recently, David Drake is also seen as a leader in blockchain and cryptocurrency.  He saw the value of digital assets when it was yet unpopular.  It all started in 2011 when Drake collaborated on the JOBS Act to create new laws underlying all fundraising in the U.S. for all ICOs.  He runs a $200M LDJ Cayman Fund focused on cryptocurrency, mining, and ICO acquisitions.  LDJ Capital Credit also offers middle market bridge financing to seed upcoming ICO’s.  Previously, he held a majority stake as a Managing Partner with Robert Hambrecht in an Alternative Energy Fund NewCommons Capital 2009-2010.

David says, “More and more startups are developing innovative technologies that have the potential to transform not only the financial industry but almost all industries. The blockchain economy is challenging various traditional systems and will continue to do so in the years to follow. I am excited to see the different opportunities that this decentralized ecosystem will uncover.”

The two-day event is a combination of panel discussions, keynote talks and fun-filled activities including a bitcoin poker tournament, token party, golf tournament and kite surfing. Experts will share their views and insights on the growing token economy and the current global ecosystem.
