Jacob KosteckiIn This Episode

In this podcast interview, Rob McNealy interviews Jacob Kostecki, organizer of the Massive Adoption crypto conference, scheduled for November 7-8, 2019 in Memphis, Tennessee.

About The Massive Adoption Conference

Massive Adoption is a one-of-a kind event for many reasons. It’s a blockchain and digital asset event that will be attended by more than 2000 people, most of whom have never been to an event in our industry before, in a place (Memphis, TN) that’s never held a large blockchain and DA event. The goal of the gathering is to introduce our attendees to real world experiences and stories of use cases in our industry. We don’t do panels, fire side chats or interviews. Our speakers interact with our audience through TEDx style talks (short keynotes); the deployment of real world working wallets, coins, NFTs, dApps and hand-on sessions and workshops.
