In short, part of Vault Security Systems AG’s management team represented the new brand ivault at the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit 2019. We were excited to have the chance to get to know some of the 100 Startups, 700 Investors, 5500 delegates, and 150 exhibitors.
As you might guess, it was a great opportunity to network with other companies and professionals in the fields of blockchain, big data, artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), and quantum technologies.
ivault is growing by the minute
As you can see in the list provided above, this year we have already been to the World Economic Forum in Davos, and the Global InsurTech Summit in Istanbul. The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit 2019 is another one of those huge events that the island (and country of its own) has truly become the “The Blockchain Island”, if not “The Blockchain Country”.
2018 was the year Malta cemented itself as The Blockchain Island with the launch of three bills during the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit last November.
In 2019, the Blockchain & AI Nation is moving beyond the hype. The Maltese Government will enact a world first: a fourth bill, giving a D.A.O. its own legal personality. In addition, a task force is also working around the clock on a set of incentives that will support businesses in Artificial Intelligence.
Malta was another great opportunity to meet a lot of inspiring minds and their pioneer companies in blockchain and AI technologies. In the picture below, we had a chat with Hamza Afifi, the organiser of the summit.
Due to the number of participants and visitors, we did extensive networking and capitalised on numerous new connections. Of course, the great lectures were noteworthy, too. With approximately 200 speakers, we didn’t get the chance to listen to every single one of them (even though we were interested in all of these). The keynote presentation was given by Joseph Muscat, the Prime Minister of Malta.
We also participated in some workshops and conferences. Our core issues at the Blockchain Summit 2019 were of interest:
- Blockchain for Transport & Logistics, and
- Blockchain for Healthcare.
These were all panel discussions with several participants.
People were also inspired by ivault, our global blockchain-based platform to protect company supply chains against counterfeit. Of course, we talked about InfoSec / Cybersecurity and GDPR Compliance as well. In just a few days, our network expanded grew significantly. In fact, we can’t wait for the next big event – hopefully we’ll see you there, too. In the video about the AI & Blockchain Summit 2019 below, you can get an insight of the amazing atmosphere on the premises. The power of the forward-thinking attendees is striking.
