Mixed reality and blockchain will merge in New York

BlockchainMix event will be held in New York.

Arcona, a blockchain-based platform creating a layer of mixed reality that will cover the Earth’s surface, together with the NYC-based Starta accelerator, is hosting an exciting discussion.

BlockchainMix is the first event in New York focusing on blockchain in mixed reality. The discussion will be a part of Starta’s Blockchain conference, bringing together the industry’s brightest minds.

Why is This Event so Important?

We are about to witness Earth’s biggest milestone since its creation: a whole new digital world is on the horizon. By 2021 the augmented and virtual reality segment is expected to reach a market size of $215 billion (USD).

With Apple’s announcement of ARKit, Facebook’s unveiling of AR Studio and Snapchat’s integration of augmented reality (AR) into its core platform, AR is currently the hottest item on investors’ agendas.

The augmented reality industry is growing very quickly, and we already need global platforms with the capacity to host an enormous amount of new content, help us to monetize it and protect copyright in the digital age. 

It’s crucial to discuss the impact of blockchain on augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) now to identify new opportunities for content creators, developers, investors, artists, and crypto enthusiasts.

The industry’s best experts are participating in a discussion. Here are just a few speakers confirmed:

Neha Singh, founder and CEO of Obsess, a VR/AR platform for experiential shopping 

Dana Farbo, AR/VR/blockchain expert, COO at Augmate, a platform for smartglasses and other wearable devices  

George Popescu, CEO and co-founder of Lampix, an AR technology platform and the editor-in-chief at the Lending Times
