Bitcoin trading specialist BitKan has postponed its major Blockchain Global Summit, and moved it from Beijing to Hong Kong, following last week’s crackdown on all things cryptocurrency by Chinese authorities.
BitKan itself stated that it would officially ban both over-the-counter bitcoin and bitcoin cash transactions.
On its website, BitKan posted the following message regarding its Blockchain Global Summit:
Notice: The Date and Location Change of the Shape the Future Summit
As the summit host, the event team in BitKan carefully balanced the pros and cons of the risks of Beijing’s city security updates and the ICO supervision from the central bank. Though we have reported to the local enforcement and there will be no ICO related contents on the summit, we decided to change the time and location of the summit to lower the risks of being cancelled.
The good news is, through our active coordination and communication, the summit will be relocated to Grand Hyatt Hotel in Hong Kong during September 20th to 21st.
After our confirmation with the guests who were going to give lectures and speeches during the summit, most of them will still present in the rescheduled summit in Hong Kong. At the same time, a majority of attendees will continue to support and join our rescheduled summit.
Hereby, BitKan sincerely appreciate the support and understanding from every single one of you. If you have already purchased the Beijing summit tickets, we will reserve the previous attending qualification for you. We look forward to meeting you in Hong Kong this time! And if there are more ticket openings available, we will reopen our ticket purchase channel.
If unfortunately you cannot attend because of this change, please send us an email to [email protected] with the title of “summit refund + name”, we will arrange the further refunding procedure for you.
