John McAfee, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, will be a featured speaker at The North American Bitcoin Conference January 17-18, 2017. The event is the longest running and most highly attended finance conference for the bitcoin, finance, and cryptocurrency industries. Mr. McAfee is scheduled to begin his presentation at 10:40 AM EST on Wednesday, January 18th. In addition to Mr. McAfee's participation, MGT is a supporting sponsor for this exciting and informative gathering.
John McAfee has been invited to keynote the Blockchain: Money conference in London on November 6-7, 2016. The two-day event will focus on emerging fintech markets, cryptocurrency initiatives, blockchain industry growth, and real-world use cases.
Blockchain: Money is the first event of its kind in London, aimed at bringing people from diverse industries together to unlock the vast potential of the blockchain. Held in central London, this is also one of the few events that can leverage the massive network of Bitcoin.com and is the longest running conference in the space. The event has looked to maximum value for an audience that is looking for solutions by selectively choosing its speakers, partners and invited attendees.
The city of London has continued to progress as a fintech hotspot in the world with many startups and investors who reside in the region. Blockchain: Money will feature many industry executives, developers, and investors within the fintech landscape. Senior officials from top European exchanges and securities institutions will attend alongside innovators and thought leaders revolutionizing venture capital.
"The Blockchain will be central to nearly every aspect of cybersecurity, from wire transfers, to send and receive authentication, to secure voting systems. It will become the cornerstone of virtually all digital transactions," said Mr McAfee.
On October 14th, MGT Capital Investments announced the commercial release of its first network security product designed by whitehat hackers and John McAfee.
Sentinel represents a new paradigm in the defense against malicious hackers. The system, comprised of a passive hardware device connected to each subnet, monitors network traffic for suspicious activity using sophisticated algorithms and heuristics, generating an alert and deploying appropriate countermeasures. Simply put, Sentinel is the first user-friendly security device to provide actionable intelligence before companies are hacked.
