New to the world of Blockchain and cryptocurrency?

Anyone interested in blockchain will this week have a chance to learn from industry experts in a talk being held at Palazzo De La Salle in Valletta on Thursday.

Designed for absolute beginners to the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency, the talk explores what the industry could mean for Malta’s future, in an event that also includes a fun panel discussion and a Q&A session moderated by Jo Caruana.

In 2018 Malta cemented itself as ‘The Blockchain Island’, with the launch of three world-first legal bills that established a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies, blockchain and DLT in general."

“This event will help prepare the next generation of potential blockchain experts, just as Malta is becoming renowned worldwide as The Blockchain Island,” explained organiser James Wicker, a technology consultant with experience in advising large multinational corporations on the likely impacts of breakthrough technologies on their respective industries and on the wider implications for society.

The speakers at this one-off event will be three experts who are quickly becoming leading names in this fast-growing global industry: Jasper de Trafford, Matthew Sacco and Mark Bugeja.

While these new technologies look to Malta’s future, the event will also help to conserve a vital part of Malta’s past, namely Valletta’s iconic skyline. The Save Valletta’s Skyline Appeal aims to raise more than €8 million to fund vital restoration work on the tower, spire and structure of St Paul’s Pro-Cathedral in Valletta, which will ensure that the cathedral’s silhouette will remain in the capital’s famous skyline and continue to be a stunning backdrop for years to come.

Blockchain for Beginners – a talk in aid of Save Valletta Skyline will be held at Palazzo De la Salle, Valletta on Thursday at 6.15pm. Tickets may be booked in advance via e-mail on
