Miami has apparently witnessed the “hottest” winter ever in its history, as thousands of Bitcoin enthusiasts had gathered at James L Knight Center for the North American Bitcoin Conference (NABC) on Jan 18 and 19. Known as BTCMiami, the conference was organized by the UAE-based Keynote, who has successfully led 12 blockchain and cryptocurrency events worldwide since 2012.
Enjoying a rigorous reputation in the field of cryptocurrency and blockchain, NABC has been attracting company representatives, economists, researchers, and media operatives. Even a mobile app was particularly created for the sole purpose of networking among the conference attendees.
Achain, one of the world’s leading public blockchain platforms, had its spokesperson Kyle Lu share the basic principles as well as recent updates of its forking theory. The theory outlines Achain’s vision of a collaborative blockchain system — something that is rather divergent from the competitiveness and exclusiveness that most blockchain solutions tend to emphasize. That being said, under a mutual agreement from all participants (namely, the VEP), Achain fosters a full range of free communication, such as requesting, approving, executing, and returning feedbacks (mandatory for all constituent nodes).
Kyle Lu, vice president of Achain, has also founded ICO Star, a global crypto-assets investment platform. Meanwhile being a serial entrepreneur in big data and mobile internet, Kyle Lu is making waves in business transformation and disruptive technology adoption.
As of now, Achain serves as a foundation for multiple blockchain-based services and individual programs. It already runs more than 50 smart contracts and 30 digital assets.
Later at the event, Achain opened up a Q&A booth to make its technology intelligible and accessible to its potential partners and the crowd. The project’s management executives regard the North American market as the team’s next strategic step. Over the recent months, it had already grown its presence in Southeast Asia, particularly with the launching of Indonesian-based DAPP project Pundi X at Blockshow Asia 2017 in Singapore.
