Organizers betting on making Florida the Blockchain Hub of the Americas

In October, elected leaders, hedge fund managers and crypto geeks will come together by day with the aim of making Florida a Blockchain-friendly state and then throw down a celebrity and superstar DJ filled deep house party worthy of Miami’s nightlife reputation — of course.

The first-annual Blockchain Shift conference (www.blockchainshift.io), co-organized by the Florida Blockchain Foundation, Park Capital and Dan Viola (October 11th – 12th, 2018) will bring together leaders in Blockchain technology, A-list speakers including elected officials, Wall Street veterans and federal regulators, with the aim of creating awareness for the potential of distributed ledgers, crypto currencies and the democratization of finance.

“The list of reasons to start Blockchain-powered businesses in Miami is long, starting with no state income tax, great weather, cost effectiveness, proximity to Latin America, and a culturally vibrant city where talented people actually want to live,” said Dan Viola, attorney, entrepreneur and Co-Founder of Blockchain Shift.

By advocating at the local and state levels to foster a crypto-friendly environment, he said Miami and by extension Florida stands to take a leap forward in the establishment of a Blockchain technology hub, providing a generational opportunity to create more economically prosperous and equitable communities.

It’s widely believed that Blockchain technology, the underpinning technology behind crypto currencies like Bitcoin, will have a more immediate and profound impact on industries where record keeping and transactions are central including cross-border payments, insurance, real estate and supply chains – key pillars of the state and regional economy.

A Learning-focused Agenda

The event will feature keynote addresses, panel discussions and fireside chats with topics ranging from Banking and Blockchain, Cybersecurity, Regulation, Bitcoin Mining, Blockchain Solutions for Wall Street, Real Estate and Art, Music, Crypto Hedge Funds, Crypto Broker-Dealers and a current look the regulatory environment.

“The time is right for executives across industries and public sector leaders to start learning more about Blockchain and its transformative impact, and to become part of the future, instead of just talking about ICOs.” said Alex Lopatine, Managing Partner of Park Capital and Executive Chairman of Blockchain Shift.

Confirmed speakers include Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Alchemist Co-Founder Steve Neyaroff, Jalak Jobanputra of Future/Perfect Ventures, Jon Najarian of Investitute.com, Paul Brodsky of Pantera Capital, Chris Ferris of IBM’s Digital Business Group, Anthony Scaramucci of Skybridge, Nick Spanos of Blockchain Technologies, the Mayor of Miami – Francis Suarez and of the Mayor of Coral Gables – Raul Valdes-Fauli.

Confirmed sponsors include IBM, tZERO, Bloomberg, SeriesOne and Security Token Advisors.

A second stage for startups to present to accredited investors and receive general marketing and legal feedback.

Good News for Startups

According to organizers, Blockchain changes the crowdfunding equation for startups by enabling companies of any size to raise money in a peer-to-peer fashion, through globally distributed share offerings. Blockchain, they say promises to help address the lack of early stage VCs in markets like Florida and Latin America, helping startups get off the ground faster by removing the delay often associated with getting initial funding.

Don’t Forget the F-U-N

Tickets to the two-day event come with access to a Night Shift, a word-class 14 hour party featuring top-shelf spirits, internationally-renowned DJs, colorful show and VIP bottle service, taking networking to a new level, say organizers. The event, they say will also provide white glove service via a concierge app, accepting crypto for tickets and sponsorships, delivering badges pre-registered to the hotel and preventing inconveniences such as long lines.

Giving Back

A portion of the event proceeds will go toward funding the Florida Blockchain Foundation, a new 501c3 organization aimed to create a crypto-friendly state and hub for the Americas, by stimulating high-paying jobs, increasing the tax base and ultimately fostering a more equitable economic landscape for all; the National Mining Association, whose mission is to build support for public policies that will help Americans fully and responsibly benefit from abundant domestic coal and mineral resources; and the Florida Alternative Investment Association (FLAIA) which focuses on Community Building, Education, Branding, Capital Attraction, Business Attraction, and Policy Optimization.

New Nevada attorney general: Background check law a priority

Dec 17, 2018

LAS VEGAS — Nevada's new attorney general wants to find a way to implement a stalled, voter-approved gun background check law when he takes office early next year after his predecessor said the measure couldn't be enforced. Democrat Aaron Ford, in an interview with The Associated Press, said he'd also be supportive of other gun-safety measures that come out of the state's Democratically controlled Legislature. Gun safety is a prominent topic in the state where a gunman opened fire last year on an outdoor music festival, killing 58. Ford, a 46-year-old attorney and outgoing state Senate majority leader, noted Friday...

Trump club is in tax break zone, but is unlikely to benefit

Dec 17, 2018

NEW YORK — President Donald Trump's company owns a golf club in an Opportunity Zone offering developers massive tax breaks, but experts say it is unlikely it could take advantage of them. The Trump National Golf Club outside Philadelphia is in one of the nation's nearly 9,000 high-poverty areas offering the breaks to spur investment, create jobs and lift incomes. But the federal law that set up the program bans "sin businesses" from benefiting, and specifically cites golf courses and country clubs along with massage parlors and racetracks in a list of examples. The 365-acre course in the southern New...

J&J hammered by report it knew of asbestos in baby powder

Dec 17, 2018

NEW YORK — Johnson & Johnson on Friday forcefully denied a media report that it knew for decades about the existence of trace amounts of asbestos in its baby powder. The report by the Reuters news service sent the company's shares into a tailspin, suffering their worst one-day sell-off in 16 years. Reuters cited documents released as part of a lawsuit by plaintiffs claiming that the product can be linked to ovarian cancer. The New Brunswick, New Jersey company has battled in court against such claims and on Friday called the Reuters report "one-sided, false and inflammatory." Johnson & Johnson's...

Dec 17, 2018

WASHINGTON — A lawyer for President Donald Trump filed papers on Friday asking that a lawsuit accusing the president of profiting from his office be taken out of the hands of a Maryland federal judge and sent to a federal appeals court. Trump's personal attorney, William Consovoy, requested the move to the 4th U.S. Court of Appeal in Richmond, Virginia, following recent rulings by U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte that allowed subpoenas seeking material from Trump businesses and other entities. The lawsuit brought by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia alleges that foreign and domestic...
