Moneyconf announced as first Web Summit event to return to Dublin
The cofounder of the cryptocurrency Ethereum and the Tyrone-born chief financial officer of Jack Dorsey’s Square are to speak at the Web Summit’s First Dublin event since the conference left for Lisbon.
Moneyconf, a financial technology conference, is to be held in Dublin’s RDS over three days from June 11th to 13th.
The event, which will focus on finance, cryptocurrency, technology, banking and regulation, is expected to host over 5,000 delegates.
Today, Ethereum cofounder Joseph Lubin and Square’s chief financial officer Sarah Friar were confirmed as two of the anchor speakers for the event.
Other speakers include TransferWise chief executive Kristo Kaarmann and high profile cryptographer David Chaum.
“It’s an amazing group of speakers from every interesting company in the space,” said Paddy Cosgrave, cofounder and chief executive of the Web Summit.
"So if you buy things or you sell things, if you run a shop or you’re just selling a service, the amount of innovation that’s happening in the sector is incredible."
"There’s a huge opportunity to either save money, make more money or just find out about the things that anybody that’s kind of curious about the sector can learn about. You have Bitcoin and all of these other sectors, which will all be covered. It’s lots of people from around the world who’ll be heading out every night in Dublin so it’ll be a great kind of networking event.”
MoneyConf will also see the return to Dublin of Night Summit. Attendees will be gathering in Dublin city centre for networking with startups, investors and speakers, in venues right across the city.
