The CoinDesk/Gawker/BuzzFeed article 4,700,000 people attended the ICO summit held on April 24-25 in New York City.
The conference attracted over 1,000 speakers, many of whom were prominent in the crypto space.
At least four blockchain conferences will be held this year, including one held in London, and the next one in Amsterdam.
A few speakers spoke about how blockchain will shape their lives, and at least one said the technology could make it easier for people to send money overseas without having to pay taxes or register their financial accounts.
At the conference, CoinDesk reported that there were more than 2,000 presentations, with nearly half of them coming from developers.
The event is expected to attract a crowd of around 2,500 people, with a smaller amount of tech professionals in attendance.
The main event will feature speakers and panelists including Blockstream CEO Brock Pierce, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, blockchain startup Vitalik Vectors, and more.
The second event, called Blockchain: the Future of Money, will be hosted by the European Parliament and will be led by two representatives of the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the European Investment Bank.
A third event, Blockchain: The Next Great Financial Transaction, is planned for April 28-29 in Paris.
This will be the third time that the conference will be co-hosted by the Commission and the ECB.
The first conference was held in January 2018.
The European Parliament is the EU’s highest administrative body and oversees its policies, including monetary policy, financial regulation and legislation.
The council also has a veto power over the Commission’s budget, with the Parliament’s approval required to approve a budget proposal.
The EU parliament also has authority over the EU institutions’ budget.
For example, the Council of the EU can propose budget proposals to the Commission, and it can also force the Commission to amend its budget proposal if it believes the changes would undermine the effectiveness of the policy, the report added.
