BlockDown 2020 today revealed that attendees will be able to log in and create their very own bespoke virtual avatars this coming Monday 13th April at 9am EST. Attendees will be able to log in and customize their avatar including their body, clothing, and accessories.

Crypto enthusiasts will be able to choose from popular crypto culture clothing such as ‘Satoshi is Female’ t-shirts, Pepe the frog and branded t-shirts of their favourite crypto projects whilst being encouraged to share their character on social media prior to the conference at the BlockDown Selfie Booth.

As excitement builds, BlockDown today revealed an exclusive trailer and more images of their virtual 3D World which is set to open to the public at 9am CET on April 16th.



BlockDown 2020 embraces digital nature of crypto, onboards plethora of top-tier speakers

The highly anticipated BlockDown 2020 blockchain conference is slated to take place in under one week from today and is expected to bring about a new standard for accessibility and digitality to the crypto conference landscape.

Whilst being fully compatible with VR Technology such as the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and WMR, The BlockDown 3D World is available for anyone with a desktop or mobile. Beyond simply being the first conference to utilize bourgeoning virtual reality (VR) technology to allow speakers and companies to interact with a wide audience, BlockDown 2020 also sets a new standard with its impressive speaker line-up.

In a press release, the conference notes that in addition to the industry leaders that they already had scheduled to speak, they have also brought onboard a myriad of other notable speakers.

As CryptoSlate has previously reported, the upcoming BlockDown 2020 conference – which is taking place across two 12 hour blockbuster days of content between April 16th and 17th – is attempting to replicate a standard crypto conference in a fully digital medium.

It will take place in a virtual world, where users can use their avatars to walk around, visit company booths, listen to speakers, network with other participants and even dance the night away at an exclusive BlockDown after-party hosted by world-famous DJ’s.

This conference will feature many of the same attributes as standard live conferences but will offer greater accessibility to users located around the world, while also allowing the crypto industry to continue connecting and progressing in the face of a widespread global pandemic.

Major players within the crypto industry have taken kindly to the idea, as BlockDown has been able to onboard an impressive host of individuals who will be speaking at the event.

Some crypto heavy-weights that were previously announced include, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, NEO founder Da Hongfei, ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees, and others.

Today, BlockDown announced that this already notable VIP speaker line-up will be further bolstered, with some of the newly announced speakers including Stellar’s Jed McCaleb, CoinMarketCap’s Carolyne Chen, and World Health Organization Partner MiPasa.

BlockDown founder Erhan Korhaliller explained that those interested in learning more about how blockchain technology can aid in the curbing of the COVID-19 pandemic may be particularly interested in MiPasa’s discussion. He said:

“BLOCKDOWN WAS CREATED IN ORDER TO HELP OUR INDUSTRY WORK THROUGH A DIFFICULT MOMENT WITH THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC, AND THEREFORE WE ARE DELIGHTED TO PROVIDE A STAGE TO MIPASA TO PRESENT THEIR PLATFORM ONBOARD TO DISCUSS HOW THEY ARE USING BLOCKCHAIN TO HELP TACKLE COVID-19.”
