LDJ Capital Chairman David Drake is one of the panel moderators. More recently, David Drake is also seen as a leader in blockchain and cryptocurrency.

He runs a $200M LDJ Cayman Fund focused on cryptocurrency, mining, and ICO acquisitions. LDJ Capital Credit also offers middle market bridge financing to seed upcoming ICO’s. Previously, he held a majority stake as a Managing Partner with Robert Hambrecht in an Alternative Energy Fund NewCommons Capital 2009-2010.
Drake says, “Blockchain is quickly tapping and disrupting various industries. The future of the crypto world not only lies in the hands of investors but also in the rapidly increasing industries supporting it. This event will surely enrich the knowledge of the delegates on the future of cryptocurrencies.”
