Everybody says they’re tired of video conference calls on Zoom, but there hasn’t been much to take its place. Now emerging tech PR and event agency EAK Digital and London-based Sine Wave Entertainment have teamed up to create a blockchain technology conference in a virtual world. The BlockDown conference will take place June 18 and June 19 in Breakroom, a social hub you can visit via virtual reality or as a 2D experience on your PC or Mac.
Taking place June 18-19, Blockdown will feature keynotes from speakers such as Akon, roundtables, networking events, a tradeshow floor, and an afterparty with live DJ. Tickets are available both for free and with paid VIP upgrades.
The BlockDown 3D virtual conference made an extremely successful debut in April, drawing in thousands of participants from across the globe who were interested in interacting with the prominent blockchain companies and speakers that attended the event.
Consequently, BlockDown is now announcing that they will be hosting another virtual event this June, bringing another host of “A-list” industry experts, while also offering the first 1,000 registrants free tickets.

Blockdown – a combination of blockchain and lockdown, is an online 2-day event that was held this week aimed at the crypto community.
