Together, we decided to create the Nexus Conference, which originally was envisioned to be a small gathering and celebration of the 3rd birthday of Nexus. The idea was to connect the Community from Slack and bring the Team together for an annual meeting to get to know each other and build better communication by meeting in person.
The Nexus Conference grew in momentum and size and was a huge success with over 430 people attending. Folks travelled from all over the world to attend, while others serendipitously found it while on vacation in Aspen. The Conference kicked off with a speech by Judge Andrew Napolitano and over the course of 3 days ended with an inspiring speech from Dr. Ron Paul. In between, there were many inspiring speeches, panels, roundtable discussions, political debates, financial conversations, musical performances, an art exhibit, a film festival, and a movie premier of the inspiring film Mully, from director Scott Haze.
The Conference was an incredible event full of like-minded individuals, who come from diverse industries and backgrounds. Many of these folks have started to see how Nexus and blockchain technology can benefit them, their industries, and humankind. The blockchain is rapidly becoming a new shift in technological advancement that is paving the way of the future and also providing real world solutions to economic uncertainty that the world is facing. Several of the industries actively working with Nexus to create real-world solutions using blockchain include insurance, real-estate, politics, music, finance, media, entertainment, and many more.
In attendance were medical cannabis advocates, people seeking to find solutions to India’s currency dilemma, individuals working to understand the future of cryptocurrency and finance, and many that have been working to change the world their entire lives. They finally had a chance to speak with others of the same mindset and to start to look at how we all can provide solutions to the challenges we face now and will face in the future. Never before has such a diverse group of individuals come together in one place to make such an impact on humanity through sharing of their wisdom and ideas.
The Conference ended on a very positive note with an after party at the Bootsy Bellows Nightclub that included another set of film Premiers from the 100 hour film festival that Scott Haze and his team completed during the Conference.
