However, we must move beyond just the ideation phase of blockchain and start using the technology in our everyday lives and discover its strengths and weaknesses. Every aspect of Blockchain Futurist Conference was designed for the community in mind. With its blockchain-friendly regulation and thriving startup community, Toronto is the best place for us to explore the technology and have fruitful discussions.”
