After a successful inaugural event last year in San Francisco, this year’s Litecoin Summit is taking place in Las Vegas on October 28th & 29th. With no shortage of crypto and blockchain events to choose from, here are five reasons why the Litecoin Summit is one you shouldn’t pass up.
1) IT’S MUCH BIGGER THAN LITECOIN
This year the Litecoin Summit joins Vegas Blockchain Week (October 26th – November 1st), which is being held by Evolv Events, host of the World Crypto Conference (WCC). Vegas Blockchain Week 2019 will bring thousands of digital currency and blockchain technology enthusiasts into the heart of the Las Vegas Strip for a multitude of events and experiences.
The week will play host to a bevy of fantastic events and will be full of crypto buzz and excitement. Las Vegas + Crypto… is there a better combination? We think not.
2.) AN AMAZING LINEUP
This year’s summit boasts a diverse lineup that includes experts and crypto personalities from all over the world, including:
- Charlie Lee, Creator of Litecoin
- Ron Paul, former Texas Congressman & Presidential Candidate
- Anthony Pompliano, Co-founder & Partner, Morgan Creek Digital

We’ll also be announcing more surprises as the date nears!
3) AN EVOLVED ECOSYSTEM
Can it be? Has the harsh crypto winter ended? Is crypto spring — or summer — officially here?
Whatever the case may be, one thing is clear: there has been a recent thawing of the landscape that has revealed an evolved and continuously maturing ecosystem that has the crypto community — as well as those on the outside — buzzing!
From the launch of new solutions that will allow users to spend their cryptocurrency at some of today’s top retailers, including SPEDN app and our forthcoming Litecoin Blockcard, some of the largest financial players in the space, including Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, E*Trade, and NYSE (Bakkt) taking public positions on crypto as a path to fuel growth, as well as giants like Facebook and Microsoft getting on the blockchain bandwagon, there are no shortage of reasons to think that we are indeed pushing towards mainstream adoption in ways we’ve not seen until now.
With this as a backdrop, this year’s Litecoin Summit is poised to be that much more exciting as much of what has been speculation until now, continues to creep into our reality.
4) AMAZING LEARNING & NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES
Whether you’re looking for your first foray into the cryptoverse, an investor keen on hearing about what’s in store for blockchain in the coming months, or seeking networking opportunities with cryptocurrency & blockchain-focused companies, this event has it all!
Aside from a plethora of spectacular speakers, there will be dozens of companies who operate in the ecosystem exhibiting products and services and looking for top talent, as well as the opportunity to purchase some awesome products using crypto.
It’s a great opportunity to bring that friend you’ve always wanted to show how Litecoin and cryptocurrencies actually work in real life, and it’s also the perfect chance for business owners that are interested in how and why they should accepting cryptocurrencies as a form of payment. Payment processing companies Aliant and Nationwide Merchant Solutions will be on hand to assist those interested in allowing their customers #PayWithLitecoin!
5) I HELPED MAKE THAT A REALITY
Last but not least, you will be contributing to the ongoing development and progression of the Litecoin mission. By attending the summit, you will be directly impacting the Litecoin Foundation’s ability to continue improving Litecoin and pushing towards mass adoption. There are many strategic initiatives that continually require funding, and the foundation is a non-profit organization that relies upon those within the community to help continue the drive towards a truly decentralized currency the entire world is able to access and use. What better way to do that, and have fun at the same time, than attending the Litecoin Summit?
The cryptocurrency and blockchain trains have officially left the station. This summit will ensure that you don’t get left behind and that you have the knowledge you need to navigate the future. On behalf of the entire Litecoin Foundation and all of our special guest, we hope to see you there!
