Malta has been keen to establish itself as a home for cryptocurrency and blockchain, and the upcoming summit is very much part of that. Eman Pulis, the founder and CEO of the summit itself declared that “we are extremely excited to have with us the legendary John McAfee on the Blockchain Island this November”.

“As one of the most prominent characters in the crypto space, we are certain that McAfee will provide a monumental contribution to the gravity of the show and the overall excitement around the Summit”, Pulis added.

As for McAfee, he’s looking forward to the event too. “I’ve wanted to go to Malta ever since I saw the Academy Award winning “Maltese Falcon” starring Humphrey Bogart. Still one of the best classic films of all time”, he wrote on his Twitter feed.

McAfee joins a roster of over 100 speakers at the event, and you can read more about it – and find out how to get tickets – at its official website. Said website can be found here.
