The Chainwise Cryptocurrency Convention is the brainchild of YouTuber and cryptocurrency influencer Crypto Crow. He is well known for documenting his cryptocurrency journey on YouTube and has developed a large and loyal fanbase of almost 80,000 subscribers. The convention is a new initiative, with a focus on getting lots of like minded cryptocurrency enthusiasts together in one place.
It is a two-day conference, with the first day focusing on more advanced topics and the second day being aimed at novices. This format means that there’s something for everyone. The central idea of the conference is to offer an inexpensive entry point for people new to cryptocurrency. This is perhaps what is most striking about Chainwise – the entry price is a fraction of the cost of almost any other cryptocurrency convention. A day ticket costs $20.
The conference takes place February 15-16, in Cincinnati Ohio, with 50% of ticket sale profits being donated to the local Shriners Burn Hospital. For those too far away to make it, each of the guest lectures will be turned into 1 hour television episodes broadcast on BizTV. And for those outside the states, the videos will also appear on Crypto Crow’s YouTube channel.
