David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group, speaks at the Blockchain Seoul 2018 Expo, B7 Summit and B7 CEO Summit organized by Money Today Media Group
Financial institutions, crypto and blockchain enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, investors, journalists, academics, government leaders, corporate executives, and startups will participate in the Blockchain Seoul Expo, B7 Summit & B7 CEO Summit at the COEX D Hall in Seoul, South Korea on September 17 – 19.
LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake is one of the panel speakers in 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.
He says, “With the representatives from participating countries of B7 – Switzerland, Dubai, Singapore, Malta, India, Estonia, and Republic of Korea – meeting in this summit, it is very interesting to know what the B7 experts have to say about the growth and the development of blockchain and cryptocurrency in the world market.”
The 3-day event features a blockchain expo, keynote speeches, panel discussions, luncheon, and networking opportunities for the attendees. Some of the topics for discussion include how to vitalize the year-end blockchain rally, growth and acceleration for blockchain startups in the market for 2019, job creation and blockchain, and the blockchain-based services for daily lives.
