Coming March 30 – April 5, 2020…
The coronavirus has now brought significant changes to CoinFest this year. Despite our extensive preparations, sponsors and exhibitors from places like Italy and Washington State will not be able to travel. Health officials are also recommending against very large gatherings in Europe and North America.
Governments in Africa are now following suit. As a result, all physical gatherings for CoinFest 2020 have been canceled; postponed events will return in the fall of 2020 or next year, depending upon how the situation unfolds. We know this is a huge disappointment for many, but we’re still organizing virtual/remote activities, and the spirit of CoinFest will continue to be celebrated as always.
Blockchain gaming will once again be a major component of CoinFest thanks to our partnership with www.blockchaingaming.com. In an effort to promote social distancing during the covid19 outbreak, we’re planning major activities in Decentraland, the blockchain-based virtual world. Read the event posting on EventChain to learn all the details!
