This summer, Canada’s largest crypto, web3, and blockchain event – Blockchain Futurist Conference – returns to Rebel Entertainment and Cabana Pool Bar in Toronto, assembling more than 6,500 attendees and over 150 speakers. The unconventional venue will provide the perfect setting for a two-day one-of-a-kind crypto experience slated for August 15-16, 2023. The event will feature three stages, two floors of expo booths, crypto marketplaces, NFT galleries, blockchain bootcamps for beginners, networking events, and two developer hackathons: ETHToronto and ETHWomen.
The Main Stage will host a curated list of top speakers who will deliver presentations and industry keynotes on the future of emerging technologies and how they impact the social, economic, political, and environmental landscape of the global economy. Here, the speakers will also provide insights into industries that are being disrupted or transformed. This stage will also form the perfect setting for speakers and presenting companies to make major announcements, launch products on-stage, and showcase innovative solutions for the first time.
Three stages include panel discussions, where speakers debate technologies such as NFTs (non-fungible tokens), DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations), GameFi, the metaverse and more. The Purple Stage is geared specifically towards bootcamps and workshops, enabling beginners to learn about blockchain and allied technologies.
One consistent fact that emerges from all Blockchain Futurist Conferences is that they promise a glimpse into topics even before they become mainstream. This is thanks, in part, to the selection committee, which carefully curates the top speakers and sends specific invites for mainstage slots. This has often resulted in stellar coverage of emerging technologies. For example, during past events, attendees heard about the future of decentralized finance, NFTs, the metaverse, and artificial intelligence even before they became buzzwords. The upcoming fifth edition will be no different.
The 5th Annual Blockchain Futurist Conference will bring together world-class speakers, including:
- Charles Hoskinson, CEO and Founder of IO Global, best known for the cryptocurrency Cardano, and Tamara Haasen, President of IO Global; which is a technology and engineering company that builds blockchains and cryptocurrencies for government entities, enterprises, and academic institutions
- Michele Romanow, a resident “Dragon”, on CBC Dragons’ Den and Co-Founder and Executive Chairperson of Clearco, a company that provides equity-free capital solutions to e-commerce businesses
- Anthony Di Iorio, Founder of Andiami, Decentral, and Ethereum
- Jaime Leverton, CEO of Hut 8, an innovation-focused digital asset miner
- Ethan Buchman, Co-Founder of Cosmos, a state-of-the-art blockchain framework
- Miko Matsumara, General Partner at gumi Cryptos Capital, a blockchain and cryptographic asset fund
- Lisa Loud, Co-Founder and CEO of FLUIEFI, a DEFI company for institutional investors
- Sascha Darius Mojtahedi, Co-Founder of Parallel, a DeFi company
Beyond the speakers, the ETHToronto and ETHWomen Hackathons will take over a month leading up to Blockchain Futurist Conference. The hackathons workshops, mentorship, mock judging and networking will take place onsite on August 15-16 at Rebel Entertainment Complex and Cabana. This second annual Web3 hackathon, ETHToronto, is a free community event (https://ccw.fm/sjTYX). The first ever ETHWomen Hackathon is a female-focused, inclusive hackathon series that is part of the ETHToronto and Blockchain Futurist Conference (https://ccw.fm/VRyjz).

By combining carefully curated presentations and discussions, NFT galleries, boot camps and workshops, expo booths, and networking events into a well-thought-out two-day event, Untraceable Events, the organizers of the 5th annual Blockchain Futurist Conference, ETHToronto, ETHWomen and Canada Crypto Week will indeed promise a crypto experience like no other.
