David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital, speaks at the Blockchain Futurist Conference in Canada organized by Untraceable


Innovators, investors, blockchain companies, pioneers, startups, and blockchain enthusiasts will convene on August 15 – 16, 2018 in Toronto, Canada for this highly anticipated 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 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, “This conference will greatly focus on the trends and future of blockchain. There will be several startups that will launch their products and will definitely be a great venue to highlight their technology and connect with potential investors.”

The conference will feature keynotes, hands-on workshops, networking breaks, and notable product announcements and launches. A closing party will conclude the event. The topics for discussion include the evolution of the blockchain community, future of currency, future of tokenization, diversity in blockchain, building technology for a better society.
