4th APAC Annual Blockchain Conference Canceled Owing to COVID-19 Outbreak

As Covid-19 virus races all across the world, most of the conference organizers are taking this crucial step to cancel, postpone, or even are going to the extent of virtualizing their meetings or summits. For example, the Paris Blockchain Week Summit was postponed till December 10th, or the Consensus in New York has been made completely virtual. Joining the list of conferences that stand canceled, Blockchain Australia also announced to postpone its 4th annual Asia-Pacific (APAC) blockchain conference 2020, which was scheduled to be held between 28th and 30th April in Melbourne, for an indefinite period until this Corona fear subsides.

The second annual blockchain industry awards named the “Blockies,” which was also supposed to be held with the APAC blockchain conference, also stands canceled. A representative from Blockchain Australia said in regard to this,

It was a difficult but necessary decision to maintain the quality of our events and protect the health and welfare of the participants. Applications that have been received to date will be preserved along with any applications finalized by the original closing date of 29 March. A further application window will also be provided.
