The Canadian Blockchain Summit

It’s time for Canada to showcase its incredible innovation in the highest impact digital technology sectors. The Canadian Blockchain Consortium is pleased to announce its 1st annual Canadian Blockchain Summit this October 19th-20th, where leaders from across the country’s incredible tech community will unite to celebrate our progress in building digital unicorns and pioneering new solutions to the world’s biggest challenges.

The summit features engaging panel discussions, top international speakers, and opportunities to connect and network with peers across diverse sectors, with special guests and new updates on the Consortium’s landmark roadmaps towards a strong digital economy.

Canada’s Evolving Digital Future

From blockchain and cryptocurrency to new developments in IoT, AI and edge computing, Canada is home to ground-breaking innovation that is rapidly reshaping our national economy – and giving the country a new advantage in highly competitive international markets.

The Canadian Technology Summit is a holistic exploration of the many ways that these advanced innovations are transforming our industries, jobs, and lives, featuring diverse thought leaders, policy makers and entrepreneurs from across the country.

Cryptocurrency and the New Economy

The US $1.5 trillion cryptocurrency markets are filled with opportunities for business growth and innovation – but education is a barrier to understanding how this rapidly changing industry will impact Canada. Discover why blockchain is key to the next evolution of our economy, why fair regulation is key to staying competitive in a newly crypto-friendly world, and how the metaverse and Web3 will forever alter the way we experience the digital world. The Summit features exclusive content on:

• Bitcoin and the new financial standard

• Digital assets and virtual metaverse worlds

• Web3 and the decentralized internet

• Creating competitive crypto regulations

Ecosystems, Education and ESG

It takes a community to build a technology – and in Canada, dozens of unique ecosystems are supporting the foundations for change through education, advocacy, and frameworks for collaboration. Explore how the convergence of digital technologies like IoT, blockchain and AI are accelerating our technological transformation, and how the rising priorities for ESG are creating new economies built on sustainability and social justice. Panel subjects include:

• The Digital Global Village: building borderless ecosystems

• Blockchain and the $100 trillion net zero economic opportunity

• Equity and access for Canadian digital technology education

• DAOs and the automated future of governance

Canada’s Bitcoin Mining Boom

Proof-of-work cryptocurrency mining is one of Canada’s quickest growing blockchain sectors, and as our share of global hash power grows, we need advanced technologies and competitive regulations that can keep pace with the rate of change. Discover the emerging opportunities for multi-billion-dollar mining migration to the energy-rich prairies, and how Ontario and Quebec are powering the green evolution of Bitcoin through large-scale mining projects. Key topics include:

• A Roadmap for Crypto Mining Success: The Consortium’s latest whitepaper

• New technology development and emerging Bitcoin mining projects

• Opportunities for transforming energy sector waste into green Bitcoin
