NEW YORK – May 15, 2018 – PRLog — Investors, entrepreneurs, academia, international companies, and investment institutions will be converging on May 18, 2018 at the newly established private club, The Hudson Club New York for this exclusive 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 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.

Drake  says, “This event will bring together industry experts from the US and China, bridging together the two countries to discuss the innovative technologies and investment opportunities that blockchain is continuously providing. The delegates will surely gain valuable insights from both communities.”

The one-day summit will feature interactive exhibitions, panel discussions, networking breaks, and a VIP cocktail reception to conclude the event. Some of the topics to be discussed include how to make the right investment in ICOs and blockchain companies, women leading in blockchain, where will the next 100 million crypto users come from, the future of real estate with blockchain, and how blockchain technology will innovate enterprises.
