Art Basel 2018: Discover the Intersection of Art, Crypto, and Blockchain on Friday, Dec. 7, at the Fontainebleau for Crypto Pro Miami Art Week


CryptoPro Miami Art Week will take place this Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, from 9:30 A.M. to 11 P.M. at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach. Falling right in the middle of Art Basel 2018, this is the first event of its kind to bridge the world of art and crypto. The all-day event will feature content for everyone ranging from artists to collectors, crypto experts, and enthusiasts. A diverse list of crypto panels will be presented by 26 speakers, leading up to a promising keynote from Brian Kelly, CEO and Founder of BKCM, and regular contributor on CNBC’s “Fast Money.” A Private Cocktail Hour will take place between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Open bar will be served for VIP attendees at the Outdoor Ocean Front Party between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

As anticipation for this week’s Crypto Pro Miami event reaches a fever pitch, the “who’s who” of the crypto-blockchain community provide an idea of what attendees can expect at this year’s event. “Art was meant to be shared with the world, and at Swarm, we feel the same about technology. As the global art community gathers in Miami this week, we’re thrilled to be a part of Crypto Pro Miami Art Week, and to share The Art Token, the newest opportunity to launch using our open technology,” said Chris Eberle, COO of Swarm Fund, Crypto Pro Miami’s latest key sponsor. Swarm Fund (Swarm) is a decentralized capital marketplace that democratizes investing via a process called tokenization. Chris Eberle’s preview of the Art Token is a phenomenal example of how new technology has the capacity to alter the art collector and investor landscape permanently.

“I am thrilled to be a speaker and working with Peter Sinkevich and the world-class team at Crypto Pro Miami Art Week. They have truly put together a unique event that solves all the needs of the blockchain community while providing immense value for those in attendance. That is what truly makes Crypto Pro Miami Art Week a stand out,” said Dr. Richard Swart on his involvement in the upcoming Crypto Pro Miami Art Week event.

With deep roots in the blockchain and investment communities, the event organizers behind Crypto Pro Miami cultivated the event with one purpose in mind: To create the ideal environment where fintech/blockchain professionals have the opportunity to engage investors who are ready to write a check. The combination of the art community, blockchain experts, finance professionals, and ultra-high-net-worth individuals is sure to make Crypto Pro Miami the highlight of Art Basel Miami Beach 2018. After a full day of learning and networking, the party starts at sunset on the Ocean Lawn at the #1 Hotel in Miami Beach, the Fontainebleau, featuring DJs and live performances.
