Coingeek Conference

Hong Kong May 2018

The very first CoinGeek Conference, held at the Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong in May 2018 promised its attendees that they’d “see history being made”.

These were pioneering days. Pre-publicity introduced Craig Wright as if he was stepping onto the public stage for the first time: “Dr. Wright is an Australian computer scientist, businessman and inventor who challenges the world with visionary ideas.”

These were pre-BSV days. Hopes pinned to Bitcoin Cash (BCH) have long since been dashed, but at the time the conference confidently offered to explain “How Crypto Currencies Like Bitcoin Cash Will Enable The Next Wave Of E-Commerce.”

Whilst later conferences, starting with one in London just a few months later, got on track with Bitcoin SV - and have stuck to it unwaveringly ever since - Hong Kong did set some important precedents: that all CoinGeek Conference would be well organised, well fed and well worth attending.
