Veteran Bitcoin Core Developer Jimmy Song added to this year’s impressive speaker line-up

Hong Kong — February 7, 2020 — TOKEN2049​, the premier crypto conference in Asia, will be  returning to Hong Kong this year on 7-8 October 2020 at ​Shangri-La’s Kerry Hotel​. As the flagship event  of ​Asia Crypto Week, TOKEN2049 will bring together leading projects as well as key decision makers and  thought leaders throughout the blockchain space.

Christopher Strauch, Co-Host of TOKEN2049 said, “With crypto running full steam ahead, we’re  continuing to

see meaningful progress across the space, be it in scalability for real-world usability to  mainstream enterprise players joining the decentralised revolution. At this year’s TOKEN2049, attendees  can expect to see prominent industry practitioners shedding light and providing an all-encompassing  perspective on the major developments we’ve seen thus far across the blockchain ecosystem.”

This year’s conference will explore a broad range of industry trends spanning privacy-oriented solutions,  the ongoing rise of decentralised finance, as well as wider investment trends and the institutionalisation of  crypto. Featuring a host of presentations, panel discussions, and workshops, this year’s conference is  envisaged to shed light on notable technical milestones and regulatory progress, and how this is expected  to impact the future of the sector at large.

“It’s crucial that we continue to reflect on what we’ve achieved as a collective industry thus far. Bitcoin has  seen a great deal of progress in the past few years and I am thrilled to see what this new decade will  bring. With that in mind, I believe that TOKEN2049 is a crucial driver of progress, adoption, and education  for the Bitcoin community. With some of the industry’s brightest minds gathering to stand together at the  forefront of the Bitcoin revolution, I look forward to sharing and gaining insights about where the future is  headed,” said Jimmy Song, Bitcoin Fellow at Blockchain Capital.

Selected as one of this year’s speakers, Jimmy Song brings over 20 years of deep technical expertise,  programming and development experience. Having worked as both a developer and programmer at  numerous startups, Jimmy is known for being an open source contributor to various Bitcoin projects, and  has held roles at Paxos and Armory Technologies. At present, he splits his time between consulting,  advising, lecturing, and writing books and articles on Bitcoin and blockchain technology.

Alongside Jimmy, other speakers participating in this year’s conference include Muneeb Ali, CEO of  Blockstack, a decentralised computing platform that was the first to receive Regulation A approval from  the Securities and Exchange Commission for its token sale; Justin Sun, Founder of TRON; Bill Barhydt,  CEO and Founder of Abra; Mance Harmon, CEO of Hedera Hashgraph; Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO ​of  FTX; Kyle Samani, Managing Partner ​of Multicoin Capital; Su Zhu, CIO and CEO ​of Three Arrows  Capital; and Willy Woo, Partner at Adaptive Capital.
