LAS VEGAS, Sept. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoinAgenda (, the premier conference for connecting blockchain and cryptocurrency investors with startup and ICO opportunities since 2014, has announced its fourth annual CoinAgenda Global presented by Transform Group, LLC, taking place at SLS Las Vegas, a luxury resort co-located with the W Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip, October 24-26.  The three-day event will feature leading cryptocurrency investors and entrepreneurs from around the world, with a special focus on so-called initial coin offerings (ICOs), digital currency funds, family offices, and a startup competition highlighting 40 startups and token companies, many of them just prior to their ICO. 

“With the negative publicity in past weeks around China’s temporary ban on ICOs and virtual currency exchanges, we tend to forget that bitcoin is still up more than 500 percent in the past twelve months and the overall cryptocurrency market, fueled by new ICOs, is up more than 1000 percent,” said Michael Terpin, founder and managing director of CoinAgenda. “CoinAgenda is the one place where the world’s most knowledgeable cryptocurrency investors and the top established and upcoming investment opportunities meet and exchange information.”

CoinAgenda Startup/ICO Competition contestants have produced more than $500 million in funding and $2 billion in market capitalization in the past year alone.  Any pre-ICO startup, private blockchain, or public blockchain under $100 million market capitalization can submit to participate in the contest by emailing  The deadline for submissions is October 6, and winners will be announced on October 10.
