North Carolina’s leading blockchain conference and expo is coming to Raleigh next month to break down the most essential topics impacting the crypto industry today.

Cryptolina, happening June 15-16 at the Raleigh Convention Center, offers a program complete with keynotes, startup demos, ICO pitches, a showcase of blockchain innovations, a recruitment event, networking over cocktails, and more.

While representative of the larger crypto movement happening on a global scale, Cryptolina also serves as a pertinent example of North Carolina’s own place in the industry—hence the title, a catchy blend of “cryptocurrency” and “North Carolina.”

The idea for Cryptolina was formed in 2013 by three blockchain enthusiasts in the Triangle—Faruk Okcetin, now co-founder of Cary-based lending platform fiNEST Resources, Dan Spuller, who is director of member services at Chamber of Digital Commerce, and Rich Spuller, business intelligence analyst at 3 Birds Marketing and lead web developer at Coinstate Ventures.

The inaugural Cryptolina was held in August 2014 in Raleigh. After its success, the event returned the following August, this time in Charlotte.

The launch of Cryptolina came at the right time, coinciding bitcoin’s entrance into mainstream awareness four years ago. Since then, excitement surrounding the crypto scene has of course expanded well beyond the concepts that first ignited it. A wealth of opportunities and implications have emerged as the applications of blockchain technology are being explored across nearly every industry.

Cryptolina intends to cover these opportunities in full, returning to the same city in which it began four years ago. The event will dive into topics including tokenization, industry employment, policy and regulation, monetization, emerging markets and more.

The speaker roster is diverse in scope, ranging from startup founders to blockchain engineers to technical strategists, with others hailing from government, law and academia.

Confirmed speakers include:

If you’d like to attend, tickets are available through the event website. They’re priced at $349 for early-bird registration (ending May 31) and $199 for students and government attendees. Registrants have the option to pay with cash or with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin or Bitcoin Cash.
