Amidst much tension looming over the horizon concerning Blockchain’s future in Indonesia and volcanic eruption, the ‘BlockBali conference was completed successfully at The Trans Resort Hotel in Bali on 27th October 2017. Organised by Blackarrow conferences, following its stupendous success in Jakarta and Mumbai, the first ever international conference on the Blockchain technology hosted by Bali registered a complete ticket sale.

It brought together a lovely confluence of 33 nationalities coming from 24 countries consisting of 300+ participants. Participating countries included the likes of China, Malaysia, Spain, Austria, India, New Zealand, England etc. Attended by the bigshots of Blockchain community surpassing Indonesia and nearby ASEAN countries, the BlockBali emerged as a huge thinktank of crypto centric activities and discussions. Attendees received a very warm welcome through a traditional song and dance routine conducted by Balinese girls for making the event a successful one. A BlockBali Conference map was placed in the event campus wherein participant nations could mark their nationalities using red stick on dots.

Starting from technology players to Blockchain gurus everyone gathered under a unified roof in the BlockBali event to discuss about the prospects of cryptocurrencies in Indonesia along with the possibilities of Indonesia emerging as a dark horse in the race of becoming the biggest ASEAN crypto currency market.

The conference also benefitted from the presence of members of National Police Anti-Terrorism Unit Densus 88 and Bali Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Some of the important issues addressed were latest industry developments in cloud mining, integration of digital currency into business, counter terrorism funding etc.
