The Nxt Foundation is very proud to announce (  ;D ) that the Nxt and Ardor community will be represented at the Cointelegraph BlockShow Europe. We've got a booth/table in the main exhibition space, and will be organising an Nxt/Ardor presence at the show. Here's the official Blockshow Europe announcement from the CoinTelegraph team:


**************************************************************************************
April 6, 2017 - BlockShow Europe 2017 will take place in Alte Kongresshalle, Munich.
The conference is going to become the major international event for showcasing established Blockchain solutions.

Blockchain is hailed as one of the most revolutionary technologies in the past few decades. This year, the industry has experienced an intense influx of investment - the volume of funds invested in Blockchain startups has exceeded $1B, and two of the largest VC deals of this year were also Blockchain-related. In addition to that, the technology has managed to receive public recognition from such global giants as Visa, PayPal, and Mastercard. This state of affairs has formed a favorable environment for startups, and thus a real boom followed as a result: the number of young Blockchain companies has grown fourfold over the past year.

Becoming more and more accepted worldwide, “the biggest innovation after the Internet itself” is receiving a growing number of various practical implementations and taking over the markets - both inside and outside the financial sector. This is why the main goal of BlockShow Europe 2017 is to become a major international platform for showcasing the most disruptive Blockchain use cases in all their multiplicity.

However, none of the Blockchain projects exists in a vacuum - there is a wide range of various external factors considerably influencing the whole industry, and this cannot be ignored. This is why BlockShow Europe 2017 will be opened by a talk about the current state of Blockchain, and the succeeding conference program will include talks and panel discussions on topics such as “Overcoming the Challenges of Blockchain Implementation”, “Blockchain Ecosystem from the Perspective of Banks and Enterprises”, “Security on Blockchain” and numerous others. As for the direct objective of BlockShow Europe 2017, a large-scale comprehensive presentation of the existing revolutionary Blockchain projects will be set out in two parts. In addition, the conference will provide startups with opportunity to compete with each other for the title of “The Best Blockchain Startup of 2017” in a competition which will be hosted by Blockchain Angels.

Among the conference speakers will be prominent experts and practitioners of the global Blockchain industry, such as Ned Scott (CEO & Co-founder at Steemit), Adam Stradling (Bitcoin & Blockchain pioneer and co-founder of Bitcoin.com), Ismail Malik (CEO of Blockchain Lab and founder of SmartLedger), Bernd Lapp (Advisor at the Ethereum Foundation), Jamie Burke (Founder of Blockchain Angels), Matej Michalko (Founder & CEO at DECENT), and Bruce Pon (CEO & Co-Founder at BigchainDB). This non-exhaustive list is about to expand - so watch for updates!

BlockShow Europe 2017 is organized by the popular Bitcoin & Blockchain media outlet CoinTelegraph in partnership with Zurich-based Blockchain platform Nexussquared and Blockchain payment processor BlockPay. The upcoming event won’t be the first one for CoinTelegraph - in August this year, the company held Helsinki Blockchain Conference 2016, the first high-profile Blockchain-dedicated event in the Nordics, which attracted massive attention from the regional Blockchain community.

There is an exclusive Christmas offer available right up to January 6th – find out more at the official BlockShow Europe website! You can also use a discount code, NXTMUNICH, to get 20% off all tickets when registering on the BlockShow Europe Eventbrite page.

See you in April!

Time for a swift kick, as the Blockshow will be happening in a mere 8 weeks  ;D

The Nxt Foundation is officially confirmed as an attendee, and we will have some interesting company at the Show:


Coin Telegraph estimates that they will have something close to 500 attendees, from a wide range of industries. It's going to be fun.

We do still need to organise a few things, mostly promotional material. I'm working on a promo item for Nxt/Ardor to go into the goody bag that each attendee will recieve, but we do need a couple of banners and a flier or brochure to give away, and I'm looking for volunteers to help with creating either of these:

Banners need to be approximately 2m high by 1m wide, in a standard roll-up banner style. I'd like to have one for Nxt and one for Ardor,or maybe one for the Foundation plus one for Ardor.
They need to be eye-catching and informative, but not too complex. Anyone want to help out by providing a design ?
I can get the printing done in NL and take them with me to Munich, so that's under control.
There will be a bounty for any designs that we use.... ;D

We also need a flier or brochure to give away, just to explain in very clear English exactly wtf Nxt, Ardor and the Nxt Foundation are all about. Again: eyecatching and informative, please.
Any text writers who'd like to have  ago at this, get in touch. A designer would also be welcome.

I'll open a channel on the NxtChat Slack for anyone who wants to help out, catch you there.. 8)
