Join UK crypto-community in CoinFest UK 2018


The CoinFest UK 2018 is an event which will be taking place in Manchester from April 5 to April 7, 2018. The event will hold at the Manchester Conference Centre, Sackville Street, Manchester, M1 3BB.

CoinFest is a Global Colloquium launched at a Waves Coffee House in Vancouver by Andrew Wagner in 2013 “as a way to incentivize cryptocurrency acceptance while educating the public about its importance and use. Its popular success prompted the Bitcoiniacs to place the world’s first Bitcoin ATM there, which we again celebrated.”

The event was brought to the United Kingdom by Adam Rizvi of the CryptoBatesGroup in 2016 where the event drew more than 200 people. In 2017 CoinFest grew to a 3-day event which hosted 19 speakers, 11 exhibitions, and 5 workshops, and had visitors from all over the world.

CoinFest is set to go even bigger this year with a compact line-up of talks, workshops, exhibitors, music, and art.
