Blockparty Teams Up with OpenCryptoTrust and Blockchain World Conference for First-ever, All Crypto Poker Tournament July 14 in Atlantic City


ZUG, SWITZERLAND - July 11, 2018 ( Newswire) Taking over Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City July 11-13, Blockchain World Conference (BWC) has announced that its three-day conference will conclude with the first-ever, all crypto poker tournament. Organised by blockchain telecom startup OpenCryptoTrust, the 100-player event will be held at 11:00 AM ET on Saturday, July 14, and will be ticketed entirely by the Blockparty blockchain-powered live event ticketing platform. In addition to tournament ticketing, Blockparty will be used for participants to buy-into games, bet, and cash out in cryptocurrency.

Paul Peru, OpenCryptoTrust's CSO, said: "We are so excited to be part of such a worldwide event and what a great networking venue for international blockchain owners, investors, and enthusiasts to be seated side-by-side and talk crypto."

Alex Falcone, Blockchain World Conference COO, said: "What better way to end a three-day conference in Atlantic City than the world's first crypto poker tournament? After three days of discussions about blockchain and cryptocurrency, this is a fun and unique way to bring our event to a close - highlighting a compelling real-world application of this technology, in true Atlantic City fashion."

To guarantee a seat in the tournament, players must already be attendees of the Blockchain World Conference and pay a $250 buy-in in cryptocurrency on the Blockparty platform. The top prize will be $10,000, and two VIP tickets to the next BWC in Hollywood FL Dec 3-5, and lots of crypto from many different coins! Blockparty will also offer prizes to any player that knocks out a pro, in addition to a competition where they will pay for the buy-in for 10 people to attend the poker tournament.

Shiv Madan, CEO of Blockparty, said: "Ticketing use cases are vast, and whether it's a multi-thousand- person music festival or a more intimate event like BWC's 100-player poker tournament, Blockparty can aid in removing many friction points for both event producers and event goers. As one of the first true real-world applications of blockchain and cryptocurrency, we're excited to add another event category, like poker, to our ticketing repertoire."

The Blockchain World Conference will bring together over 8,000 members of the international blockchain community and feature an elite line-up of speakers including Founder of and tZERO Dr. Patrick Byrne, Managing Director of Comcast Venture Gil Beyda, Microsoft CTO, Azure Engineering and blockchain specialist Graham Mosely, John McAfee, and many more.
