India is all set to host the biggest Blockchain conference in South Asia in May. The World Satoshi Summit 2018 is a must attend for all you Blockchain and cryptocurrency enthusiasts out there! Blockchain, since its inception has become a phenomenon that everyone wants to implement in business hoping to transform it. The recently held World Economic Forum 2018 in Davos also saw industry leaders, entrepreneurs, and influencers gather to share ideas on the impact of Blockchain technology on the world economy.

From its humble beginning as the Bitcoin’s underlying technology, blockchain has become a hot topic of late. Blockchain’s decentralized nature is revolutionizing the present day business world. The lack of a trusted third party ensures that there’s no fear of fraud or loss while doing business. Thus businesses and societies become more scalable with more and more people coming together to do business.

The Vision

Our current society is plagued by huge financial disasters and scams. Every community, economy, organization, and country is in need of an alternative route supported by revolutionary technology which can transform the world. The World Satoshi Summit hopes for an inclusive, transparent, and decentralized future. The website for the summit says “Dream Discuss Decentralize”.

They aim to promote a vision of a world which works in a trust-free manner, without corruption and inefficiency because of human greed and errors. To make this vision a reality, this movement is initiated to bring everyone together to ideate, discuss and innovate around blockchain and cryptocurrency.
