Best Blockchain Conferences 2021 – 2022

"Best In Category" Series

When I first started this cybersecurity conference directory Blockchain was in its’ infancy; now it is virtually matured into being a core-function of everything tech-related. With my list of recommended Blockchain conferences and events, I’ve tried to incorporate as many industries as possible within the subject-matter. I hope you enjoy my list and that you visit us often to check for updates!

Whilst we are not a “pure-play” Blockchain Conference directory we are seeing more events being submitted every year. This list will change and be edited as the year progresses and notable events are submitted to our directory.

Blockchain Summit London
October 20th, 2020
United Kingdom

• Past Review •

The Blockchain Summit in London, UK, focuses on actionable and practical applications of the technology.

The organizers of this event have put together a huge event that includes 200 Blockchain speakers.

You can consider this conference as being a “hands-on”, “how-to” type of event that will discuss literally every aspect of Blockchain technology. If you’re working in London and with Blockchain technology then this conference would be highly recommended to attend.

Of course, like anything 2020-related, just make sure that it is either an “in-person” conference or virtual.

Utimaco Applied Crypto Symposium
January 16th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

Utimaco looks fascinating and I hope that it continues next year as well.

This conference, held in the US, addresses the implementation of “crypto agility” and its’ association with security threats and challenges – all within quantum cryptography!

If that sounds of interest and you understand it all then clearly, another on-point niche-specific event.

Whilst not strictly speaking a “Blockchain Conference” I’ve included it in our roundup list to add some diversity into everything cryptological.

The event has a focus as well on exploring the PQC subject-matter, (PQC meaning: Post-Quantum Cryptography).

Mallorca Blockchain Days
March 20th, 2020

• Past Review •

If you are obsessed with bitcoin and liberty and everythign in-between, then this Blockchain conference in sunny and beautiful Mallorca is for you!

The conference brings a lot of folks together that are experienced with blockchain technologies; and the dicussions will revolve around blockchain and crypto.

The conference page placed emphasis on inviting blockchain developers, so be sure to check out next year’s event, especially if you are a developer and working in Central Europe/Spain.

Two questions that the organizers wish to address at “Mallorca Blockchain Days” include:

  • “Is Bitcoin the new computerized gold?”
  • “Is there another method of online networking?”

If questions like that are of interest to you then be sure to keep an eye out of Blockchain Days future events.

Blockchain Economy Istanbul Summit
February 20th, 2020

• Past Review •

Similar to “Mallorca Blockchain Days”, listed above, is the “Blockchain Economy” that takes place in Istanbul, Turkey.

One of the main themes of this Blockchain event was the concept and implementation of “decentralization.

An interesting fact is that Turkey is one of the largest crypto owning country’s in the world, so you can be assured of being in the company of some heavy hitters and knowledgeable Blockchain folks by attending this conference.

For two days, the best international names in the sector will gather to discuss various topics about blockchain and cryptocurrency.

The North American Bitcoin Conference
January 15th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

The North American Bitcoin Conference is one of the largest events of the year.

The agenda is focused on enterprise and broader applications for blockchain, however, the organizers still ensure that key crypto topics such as regulation and adoption are also covered.

I’ve read that this Blockchain conference helped to shape the cryptocurrency industry way back in 2012.

Crypto speakers will also discuss adoption and regulation.

All of the above pioneering technologies are interwoven within the Pharmaceutical Industry.

Blockchain in Oil and Gas Canada
February 11th, 2020

• Past Review •

Blockchain In Oil & Gas in fantastic.

It shows how applicable the technology is for literally every industry, for example my roundup also includes Blockchain conferences for the healthcare sector.

This Canadian Blockchain conference focuses squarely on how the technology is having an impact in the oil and gas sector.

Expect to see many use-cases of Blockchain within the Oil & Gas sector.

An event like this would be especially of interest for those working with SCADA & ICS systems.

Stanford Blockchain Conference
February 19th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

It would be difficult to find a more high-brow educational and informative Blockchain event like the Stanford Blockchain Conference.

This event will examine methods of security engineering blockchain systems with regards to risk management.

Fintech Friday – Blockchain: Revolutionary or Over-Hyped
July 10th, 2020
United Kingdom

• Past Review •

I understand that this event is Free; perhaps next years event is as well?

Indeed, I might also be correct in thinking (please check) that FinTech Friday does indeed as you’d imagine, take place on a frequent basis!

According to the organizers, Fintech Friday will showcase industry driving voices through short, concise introductions, and group discussions.

If you work in FinTech or FinSec in the city of London, UK, then you should really consider getting involved.

International Conference on Blockchain Technology (ICBCT)
March 12th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

I understand that the goal of this Blockchain conference is to “market community-wide discussion identifying the advanced applications”.

This is certainly one of the more security-driven Blockchain events that I’ve listed in my roundup in that there will be discussions on how to prevent data breaches, fraud, cyber-attacks, and cybercrime when transactions are in transit.

Digi-Tech Pharma & AI 2020
May 13th, 2020
United Kingdom

• Past Review •

Totally niche-specific and awesome: the DigiTech Pharma & AI event covers a lot of ground but of interest to my roundup of Blockchain conferences is that this event has a clear focus on several technologies, including:

  • AI
  • Big Data
  • IoT
  • Cloud Computing
  • Augmented Reality
  • And – of course – the Blockchain!

The specific purpose of this conference in London, UK, is to address new innovations in the Pharma industry’s digital transformation.

If you work with any of these technologies and apply them to healthcare then clearly you want to make sure that you attend this conference that I believe is annual.

Furthermore, it will be fascinating to see how these technologies have helped us defeat the terror of COVID-19.
