Global virtual blockchain conference – BlockDown – is adding Spanish and Turkish language translation to its June 18-19 event, making it the world’s most accessible online crypto conference opening it up to a potential audience of around 1.8 billion people.

BlockDown 2020 uses a unique virtual 3D world, similar to popular computer game ‘The Sims’, that allows guests to choose and customize an avatar, before sending them into the virtual conference hall to ‘meet’ other delegates, browse exhibition booths and even network in the virtual space. 


The event will feature Grammy-nominated artist and entrepreneur Akon, Ripple CTO David Schwartz, Stellar Co-Founder – Jed McCaleb, Changpeng Zhao, founder of Binance, and Brock Pierce, blockchain evangelist and visionary, with more high-profile guests to be announced soon.

Following a successful launch in April, this edition of BlockDown will be live-streamed across leading crypto news sites, Cryptoslate, NewsBTC, Bitcoinist, and CriptoNoticias making it the world’s most-watched virtual blockchain conference with the sites jointly boasting millions of monthly viewers.

The whole event can also be experienced in a standard 2D or third person format, or if guests have the equipment it can even be enjoyed using a virtual reality headset. The conference was set up following the global lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic, as a way to keep the crypto community in touch and allowing them to network from the comfort of their own home, without the risk of traveling.


Participants can join in using both the 2D and 3D environments and select their language, which will have a live translator simultaneously translating all of the content into their language of choice. 

By providing live simultaneous translations in local languages, BlockDown organiser and founder of crypto PR agency EAK Digital, Erhan Korhaliller, said it would make the event accessible to a huge global audience and not just those who speak English, and would allow the event to tap into huge cryptocurrency communities in Turkey and Latin America.

“We are on a mission to bring BlockDown to as many people worldwide as possible in order to provide a platform of blockchain education and entertainment to the world,” he said.

“Making BlockDown accessible to the masses fits in perfectly with our industry goal of bringing in those people who are locked out of traditional financial systems and especially those who are unable to understand English.“

“We want to spread the word about the benefits blockchain and cryptocurrencies can bring, and BlockDown allows the crypto community to stay in touch, stay connected, and network.”

The event has three tiers of tickets, starting with a free ticket through to VIP, which includes access to the VIP boat ‘after party’ and access to exclusive mastermind sessions, a new format bringing together the brightest minds in the sector.

BlockDown’s next edition will be held on June 18-19. To find out more, head to to sign up and register, join the BlockDown telegram, or email
