Blockchain Cuties, Mythical Games and Refereum to speak at the first Blockchain Gamer Connects Hong Kong

This summer, Blockchain Gamer Connects heads to Hong Kong for the first time. Held at Cyberport and in association with Animoca Brands, the two-day industry conference features seven packed tracks of cutting-edge seminars from 40 of the world’s leading practitioners in blockchain games.

With more than 30 sessions and 20 hours of content, topics will range from the blockchain basics to raising funding and case studies from the people already making the next generation of games.

Part of an international series of B2B events, Blockchain Gamer Connects debuted in San Francisco last year and has since gone on to record-breaking attendances in Helsinki, Finland and London, UK. With hundreds of satisfied visitors already, this summer marks its first appearance in the East.

With less than two months to the event, we’re thrilled to reveal the first of the world-class experts that will share their insights with the audience this July 17th and 18th.
