David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group, speaks at The Blockchain Event in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Developers, entrepreneurs, startups, industry leaders, and investors will gather on January 30 – February 1, 2019 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale / Broward County Convention Center in Florida for this much-awaited event.
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 still 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, “Crypto professionals, investors, and startups will surely benefit from this event. Not only will they get firsthand insights from industry experts on how to maximize blockchain opportunities, they also have a chance to meet potential partners and expand their network.”
