A few weeks ago I put forward some ideas for kickstarting a Steem Outreach Initiative.
One of those ideas was a Steem Ambassadors program to support people to go to crypto and blockchain events around the world to talk about Steem.
With travel, accommodation and conference fees this program would require financial resources to take it forward and so I had outlined in my post a draft proposal plan to put to the Steem Proposal System.
This has not so far gained enough momentum to take forward a full proposal to the SPS. However prominent Steem investor and 3Speak co-founder @theycallmedan has come forward and offered to go to events at his own expense across America to present Steem.
Therefore as a starting point for this I have done some initial research to find potential events for Dan to speak at.
He is able to attend conferences across the USA, and also possibly Canada and South America.
Below are a number of crypto/blockchain related conferences identified so far.
Some are going to be too soon. Some are not going to have the right focus. Some will not be accepting offers to speak.
But it is a starting point.
I am quite sure, from the collective knowledge of the Steem community, we can build and refine this list to identify the most suitable events for Dan to attend.
Therefore I am looking for input...
- do you know anything about these listed events, in terms of suitability etc?
- do you have any personal connections with any of the event organisers?
- do you know of any other suitable events in the next 12 months?
