FLAIA to Host Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Forum

For the second consecutive year, the Florida Alternative Investment Association (FLAIA) is hosting its popular Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency (ABC) Forum at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

The conference will gather asset managers, entrepreneurs, investors and global thought leaders to discuss key market developments in the space. Topics will include security token offerings, big data and prediction markets, trading and investing in cryptocurrencies, cybersecurity, smart contracts, legislative and regulatory trends and more.

“Today’s digital economy offers a unique opportunity to entrepreneurs, asset managers, investors and service providers in the alternative investment world,” said Michael Corcelli, Founder and Chairman of FLAIA. “The FLAIA team is excited to bring together some of the world’s most influential thought leaders in the space to discuss the ABCs of this new digital economy.”

Some of the featured speakers at FLAIA ABC Forum include leaders from IBM, Galaxy Digital, Celsius Network, Buildcoin, Fundstrat and Grayscale. Other participants will soon be announced. Presentations will be made via a series of keynotes, “fireside chats” and panel discussions. 

The forum will offer managers and investors a three-pronged agenda:

  • Artificial Intelligence, which has been embraced by companies such as Amazon and Google to track online customer behavior and drive advertising campaigns. In financial markets, companies are using AI to drive their investment strategies. 
  • Blockchain technology, which is disrupting the traditional banking model and revolutionizing the way in which businesses and people exchange currency for goods and services. Although the decentralized nature of blockchain is difficult to regulate, governments are already embracing monetized digital tokens to raise funds for community projects.
  • Cryptocurrency, which carries the potential to completely disrupt the foundation that the global economy is built on -- fiat currency.  Governments are closely monitoring how citizens embrace these new store houses of value.  Bitcoin and other tokens are changing the dynamics of international trade, foreign relations, and diplomacy.

“The digital economy in Florida is thriving and many are saying that Miami has become the Cryptocurrency capital of the U.S. and possibly the world,” Corcelli said.
