As many industry conferences have been forced to reevaluate in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic, Bad Crypto Podcast hosts Joel Comm and Travis Wright decided to launch a dedicated virtual event for the blockchain community.

“While the threat of Coronavirus has led to the cancellation or postponement of our favorite blockchain events, we are fortunate to have an incredible community and the technology to create similar experiences on a global scale,” said Joel Comm.

Free registration for Virtual Blockchain Week is open now. Half of the proceeds from VIP tickets will support Binance Charity’s #CryptoAgainstCovid initiative.

“COVID-19 is a global issue. It’s important for the crypto and blockchain community to come together to support the fight,” said Jarred Winn, Senior Vice President of Charity at Binance. “We are pleased and thankful to have partnered with Bad Crypto Podcast and Virtual Blockchain Week in doing so.”

Virtual Blockchain Week attendees will receive certified collectible non-fungible tokens as evidence of their participation in this first-of-its-kind event. A special edition CryptoNewspeople NFT will be sent out this week as well.
