Where higher to take a look at all the most recent crypto-tech than the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Actually, because it turned out, discovering crypto at CES wasn’t as simple as first anticipated.
Technology Unveiled at CES 2019
The Sunday earlier than the present hosts a media occasion known as CES Unveiled, that includes the Best of Innovation awards.
After three hours feigning excited by a complete vary of tech startups newest choices, I used to be starting to lose hope. The closest I’d come to something blockchain associated was a degree-of-sale machine, which the exhibitor mentioned: “could develop to include cryptocurrency payments in the future.”
Just because the occasion was ending I stumbled throughout the Archos sales space, the place they have been exhibiting a brand new pockets, the Safe-T contact. I organized to satisfy them once more throughout the present correct, with the chance that they could be capable to supply a evaluate mannequin.
On exiting the corridor I used to be sequestered by a youth holding an indication saying CoinAgenda. Apparently there was a crypto-afterparty a brief bus experience away. A fast straw ballot of the friends prompt that no one actually knew what the occasion needed to do with crypto. But there was an open bar, so no one appeared overly involved.
Monday was spent exploring Vegas, however I did likelihood upon this Bitcoin ATM in a Love Boutique.
Then Tuesday noticed a full day of hosted panel-sort discussions within the ‘Digital Money’ convention monitor. Access to those convention tracks required the acquisition of a further cross over and above the registration for the principle occasion. Whilst I hadn’t discovered a lot to report from the Unveiled present, there was a wealthy vein of cryptocurrency and blockchain, taking part in a outstanding half in occasions.
