28 March 2018, Istanbul

Thanks for joining us at Blockchain Venture Summit Istanbul. We’ll announce our next conference destination soon. Please leave your address to be the first to know.

Blockchain Venture Summit



Webrazzi is Turkey’s leading media company, focusing mainly on issues regarding local and regional Internet and digital markets, startups, investments, technological developments and events. We’ve been organizing the region’s leading tech conferences since 2006, including the highly-regarded Webrazzi Summit, which attracts around 2000 attendees annually.

Based on the strength of the success that we have had, we recently launched Bitrazzi, one of the fastest growing blockchain and cryptocurrency-related news sites, in December 2017.

Now, we are bringing you an exciting new conference, Blockchain Venture Summit. This conference will bring together blockchain and cryptocurrency investors, entrepreneurs and professionals who want to establish connections with Europe and MENA’s most influential minds, and who want to stay ahead of the curve and get the inside scoop on the most promising companies out there as they prepare for high-profile ICOs / Token Sales.

At Blockchain Venture Summit, other than connecting investors and entrepreneurs, we’ll be discussing the future of blockchain technologies, as well as the current situation of the cryptocurrency markets. We’ll also be answering the questions on everyone’s lips, such as:

  • What are the expectations or predictions for blockchain going forward?
  • What are the consequences of investing in cryptocurrencies?
  • What are the main questions to ask when evaluating an ICO or Token Sale?
  • Will ICOs change the way in which funds are raised?
  • Is venture capital really dead?

And many more!

We want you to get involved with the international giants of this industry, who will be discussing Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, Ethereum, ICOs, Altcoins, token sales, wallets and all the most current issues in the crypto-sphere.

İstanbul has enormous potential within the cryptocurrency industry. The city promises to be one of the biggest movers and shakers in the world going forward, with interest from multiple industry players and a significant geographical advantage providing you with the chance to meet and communicate with like-minded individuals at the very heart of Eurasia.

The Turkish government are forward-thinking, already creating different working groups for ongoing and pioneering research into cryptocurrencies. Plus, Istanbul plays host to multiple expert practitioners and supporters of cryptocurrencies and their underlying technology.

In Blockchain Venture Summit, we will introduce more than a hundred companies who will be exhibiting their work, providing a unique opportunity for attendees to gain multiple company insights, and help the industry grow bigger together.

In addition to companies, investors from all around the world will be gathering to gain a deeper understanding of this revolutionary new technology. This conference will showcase a fantastic range of exhibitions, which will spark increased fundraising for new, innovative enterprises in the long-run, through their ICOs and Token sales.

There will be companies which are already at the investment stage as well as beta-stage startups attending. All in all, we are expecting more than 1000 delegates to attend from all over the world.
