The Blockchain Cruise is known to host passionate debates around the future of cryptocurrency and blockchain adoption.

Mashable famously published a headline about the 2018 Blockchain Europe Cruise, declaring: It only took 37 seconds for two bitcoin ‘celebs’ to start fighting on a cruise ship.

This was in reference to a heated discussion between Jimmy Song, a venture partner at Blockchain Capital LLC, and Bitcoin Cash evangelist Roger Ver.

The event has seen more than 30 high-profile business contracts signed between different projects, investors and companies, such as an alliance between CoinBene exchange and McAfee Team. The total value of these deals is more than $50 million USD.

It will depart from Barcelona and dock in Rome, with stops in Palma de Mallorca, Marseille, and La Spezia.

The global conference will take place on the majestic Oasis of the Seas by Royal Caribbean.

We are very excited to offer this unparalleled networking opportunity again,” said Kristina Bliadze, event coordinator for CoinsBank.

“We should do things the right way, using clear and sensible parameters,” said Muscat.

SingularityNET’s state-of-the-art artificial general intelligence robot, Sophia addressed an excited crowd giving her thoughts on the future of decentralization.

“What excites me most is the ability to connect a lot of decentralized projects into a decentralized network made up of decentralized networks – an ecosystem of ecosystems,” said Sophia.

SingularityNET announced they will be collaborating with Malta.ai on a pilot project to look into the feasibility of a citizenship test for robots.

Sophia later appeared in a press conference praising the implementation of new government task force to design a strategy regarding Malta’s commitment to AI technology.

Later, ICO’s Rise.eco and AEToken were awarded €25,000 each during the summit’s ICO Pitch. Round two starts later today.

Cybersecurity expert John McAfee took the main stage, adding to the excitement of the thousands in attendance.

The first segment of day one will focus on regulatory developments and propositions within Malta.

On July 4, 2018, the Maltese Parliament officially passed three bills into law, launching the first regulatory framework for distributed ledger technologies, making Malta the first country in the world to provide regulations for operators in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space.

The second half of the day will cover applications of blockchain technology in governance and social change, financial markets, and the entertainment industry.

TRON CEO Justin Sun, left, and Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, right, will both be attending the Malta Blockchain Summit.

On day two, the summit will be the day with topics geared toward decentralized application (dApp) developers, and deployment of an ICO, among other technical talks.

The second half of day two is dedicated to cryptocurrencies, initial coin offerings (ICO’s), the evolution of the banking industry, and the future of the cryptocurrency market.

An event-wide blockchain hackathon will feature teams of four to eight members competing for a $50,000 prize. In addition, 40 ICO’s will pitch their product for a chance to win $100,000.

The progressive, pro-blockchain stance of the Maltese government has already resulted in Binance, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, re-headquartering in Malta. Furthermore, OKEx, another well-known exchange, has set up headquarters on the island.

Blockchain Daily will be on the “Blockchain Island” for the summit providing around the clock updates and uploading exclusive content to our social media accounts.

McAfee served as Chief Cybersecurity Visionary of the Company since August and gave the following statement in a press release.

John Mcafee

“I would like to thank Steve, Rob Ladd and the entire board for giving me the opportunity to return to corporate life, but I am very happy with my decision. I am looking forward to toiling in obscurity as the world’s foremost authority of all things cyber and crypto!  In all candor, the past two years have been action-packed and productive, and I want to thank all shareholders for their support. I leave MGT in much stronger condition than when I arrived and remain a major stakeholder.”

The move positions MGT as a pure play cryptocurrency mining operation, led by Stephen Schaeffer, President of MGT Cryptocurrency Strategies.

The Company currently owns or operates approximately 5,000 Bitmain Antminer S9 Bitcoin mining rigs and 50 GPU-based Ethereum miners, capable of generating over 65 Ph/s of computing power when fully deployed by the end of February.

MGT ended last year with $9.5 million of cash, no debt and minimal payables.
