EquityICO Business Summit

October 19-20, 2018
Zermatt Resort, Midway, Utah


Join us at EquityICO, the premier event for blockchain, crypto, and finance minds to make personal connections, start new collaborations, and execute business.

2018 brought many challenges and saw a staggering decline in the total value of the cryptocurrency market. Many are saying blockchain is dead...we believe this is just another beginning. After the crash, removed from the hype and headlines; entrepreneurs, technologists, tinkerers, developers and other professionals have remained undeterred, focused, overcoming adversity, working tirelessly towards a vision: building the future block by block, one day at a time. Come be inspired, help build the next generation and be a part of a fascinating history that is still being written.


Keynote Speakers

Brock Pierce headlines the event with the saturday keynote with his unparalleled combination of success, perspective, and vision within the blockchain space. Ken Rutkowski will open the summit with his unique perspective gained through interviews on his radio program with dozens of blockchain visionaries.
