For three days,
we will share best practices and experiences around crypto currencies and the blockchain.

Regardless if you are just getting started with this exciting technology or if you are already a seasoned crypto trader, most of us deal with the same topics again and again like: Where is the market headed? What is the possible impact of new technologies? What are the legal frameworks? Where to get reliable information? What are the best tools? And many other topics.

At Mountain Crypto you will discuss these and other topics with like minded people and learn from each other how to deal with the fast changing opportunities and challenges of crypto currency.


Our event is a mix of formal and informal sessions that are driven by participants and best practice examples. Of course there will also be plenty of time to connect with the participants on a personal level and have fun together in the inspiring mountain resort of Bansko.

Session Planning

10:30 - 13:30

Unconference Sessions

Share and learn. Exact session schedule to be confirmed during session planning
The unconference format creates space for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity.

At the start, the whole group will gather together and be guided through creating an agenda using open space technology. The exact process is not important to understand in advance – the process will become clear as it happens. The important part is that all those gathered will have the opportunity to put conference sessions on the agenda. No session will be voted off or ‘won’t happen’ for some other reason. All sessions are welcome.

The sessions convened will range from the formal to the informal:

From the well thought out pre-prepared talk reflecting years of research and practice to the spur of the moment ‘new idea’ that would be fun to talk about.
From the demonstration of a working tool to the whiteboarding of something completely new.
