Blockchain Gamer Connects Helsinki 2018 reveals first waves of speakers

This September, Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki returns for its fifth outing in Finland's capital city - and this year, we’re bringing a friend.

In addition to the 12 conference tracks delivered by 120-plus world-class speakers - you can read more about the first confirmed speakers here - you’ll find another four tracks entirely dedicated to games and the blockchain in Blockchain Gamer Connects.

Your ticket will get you into both shows and you could save up to $400 with our Early Bird prices until the end of the month.

Blockchain for all

Hot from its San Francisco debut this summer, the two-day exhibition and conference runs alongside Pocket Gamer Connects and adds a further 40 speakers from the foremost practitioners in the sector.

The schedule has been carefully created to include content for all levels of experience, from covering the basics for anyone looking to include blockchain in their next project to forecasting the future trends and techniques for trailblazers already working with the technology.

Who's speaking?

Confirmed speakers already include Alto.io, Gamertoken, Gumi and Reality Clash, with plenty more to come. Hoard Exchange’s Martin Amor will examine what the blockchain scene has to offer triple-A games developers, while Fractured Labs CEO Stephen Arnold will explain why it chose Blockchain for its project.
