David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital, speaks at the BlockShow Americas in Las Vegas organized by BlockShow


Company executives, venture capitalists, blockchain and cryptocurrency enthusiasts, investors, members of the media and the press, financial analysts, and startups will participate on the BlockShow Americas 2018 at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 20-21, 2018.

LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake is one of the speakers for this event. 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 ICOs. Previously, he held a majority stake as a Managing Partner with Robert Hambrecht in an Alternative Energy Fund NewCommons Capital 2009-2010.

Drake says, “The Blockchain community has grown significantly in the past months. In line with this, there are multiple trends and development in the space. The BlockShow event provides startups and people interested to understand blockchain technology and cryptos an amazing opportunity to learn from the leading industry experts and an opportunity to help expand their network.”

The two-day event will feature exhibitions from participating companies, panel discussions with the speakers, speeches from guest speakers, pitch sessions, battle discussions with experts, and networking opportunities between the programs.
