Deconomy organizer Jeff Paik stated, “The tickets were sold out last year and we had crowds of blockchain aficionados and enthusiasts at the booths trying to get in to listen to the speakers. We tried our best this year to accommodate more people to take part in deep discussions of the present and future of the blockchain by increasing the venue and lowering prices.”
