Hyatt Regency Aurora-Denver Conference Center Denver, CO
$849 800 There are “experts” and then there are professionals with the certifications to prove it. Our motto is “Learn. Apply. Grow.” and it’s also our guarantee. Blockchain Training Conference 2019 (BTC2019) follows the highly successful, first educational Blockchain Training Conference originally set in Toronto, Canada in 2016. Organized by the non-profit, community-driven, certification and standards body CryptoCurrency Certification Consortium (C4), and aantonop Events, BTC2019 sets the standard for blockchain industry excellence by including exam preparation, training, and all exam fees for each attendee to become a Certified Bitcoin Professional (CBP) and the first training workshop for the new CryptoCurrency Security Standard Auditor (CCSSA) professional designation. BTC2019 is an educational conference – period. This is not a conference where you’ll hear pitches on ICOs from questionable companies. Sponsors don’t get stage time simply because they’re helping pay for the event. Every course session is designed with two or more learning objectives, every teacher cares that you learn something useful from their session. With almost 16 hours of educational content, it’s like you’re getting an entire college course, condensed into just three days.
