Today, Draper Goren Holm, a venture capital company led by billionaire Tim Draper, announced that it will give away $ 100 worth of Bitcoin to each participant for free during the Los Angeles Blockchain Summit from October 6-7 .
It is reported that this company was co-founded by Tim Draper, Alon Goren and Josef Holm. The purpose of holding this event is to encourage the public to receive education about digital currencies.
Is there any money to participate in this meeting? The big guys said that as long as they register and use the eToro platform, they can join the conference for free, which is simply the conscience of the industry.

It is really exciting to organize and participate in the largest Bitcoin donation event in history, because there has never been so many 'HODLer' in one place. "
According to the announcement, this two-day summit will cover content related to experts and beginners, and the latter can also learn and use crypto applications and wallets at the "beginner" meeting set up by the summit to let them know How to use bitcoin for free.
New coronavirus hits offline conferences on blockchain
As Draper Goren Holm generously unpacked, the global conference business was hit hard by the outbreak of a new coronavirus.
As the epidemic spreads, conference organizers around the world are canceling, postponing or planning live events.
For example, the MIT Bitcoin Expo originally scheduled for this weekend at MIT is expected to be cancelled or postponed.
Unless the epidemic is effectively controlled, even free tickets and bitcoin giveaways may not be enough to persuade people to take risks.
