Building a Blockchain Future

Blockchain doesn’t just help social movements, it is a social movement. Let’s build the world in which we wish to live. Where diversity is not an afterthought and competition is replaced by collaboration.

Speakers Chosen for Quality

Voice of Blockchain is built from the bottom up. Build the best quality event possible, then figure out what we need to execute.  Too many events in blockchain are overpriced, lacking of quality, and dominated by paid content.

the Best Ideas in the World

Diversity includes ideas and geographies. Find out what places like Dubai, Singapore, Malta, and Zug are doing to be competitive in a global economy, reduce costs of services, and expel corruption.





This event was created to reclaim the Voice of Blockchain. Join us in bringing the LEADERS in blockchain, government, and business together with the VOICES to learn what is possible from the BUILDERS




Our speakers include Blockchain Icons, Vertical Industry Leaders,  & Heads of State attending to share best practices and shape the Voice of Blockchain.



Join over 100 Bloggers, Podcasters, and Youtubers the masses find when they first learn about blockchain. They will echo the message of the LEADERS.

Made special for developers, our BUIDL Academy validates your completion of blockchain programming courses ranging from beginner to specialized courses by our Academy partners including Enigma Protocol.  This is all made possible by Eazl, a Chicago based company that puts your certification on the blockchain AND displays the certificate on your LinkedIn. What better way is there to immutably show the boss why they should pay for your ticket!



Join our basic course if you have a background in development and are looking to be introduced to blockchain. We will discuss the orgins and purpose of the UTXO model in bitcoin. From there we will look at Ethereum. You will write a voting smart contract in solidity and deploy it on a test net! 


Our intermediate class is for developers that are familiar with javascript and Ethereum's programming language, solidity. We will take you to the next level with a more robust smart contract that will expand your solidity toolbox. Build an auction Dapp with web3 integration. 


These courses are taught by our BUIDL Academy partners including Enigma Protocol. As a developer in the blockchain space it can be difficult to stay on top of the many protocols being created. Our Academy partners will walk you through their design and tools leaving you with a takeaway to show off on your LinkedIn.

Blockchain does not just enable social movements, it IS the social movement.
