Conversations are sure to continue off the stage where attendees will have one-on-one access to our speakers as well as mentorships for VIPs in want of extra time. For those interested in Blockchain development, we have invited Def Con black badge winners to lead workshops and speak to those craving scarce knowledge.

Essentially, HoshoCon is the kind of conference we at Hosho, the global leader in Blockchain Security, would want to attend.

Hosho exists to challenge the definition of what blockchain security currently means, to hold the members of our community to those standards, and to allow the blockchain space to grow to its full potential. Taking ahold of that torch originally ignited by those pioneers who laid the groundwork for this industry that we operate in and love, Hosho has contributed to driving it forward , charging ahead to protect and secure it.
