Report: North Korea to Hold a Crypto Conference

August 25, 2018 |

Report: North Korea to Hold a Crypto Conference

North Korea is reportedly planning to hold a conference devoted to blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies. The event, said to have been scheduled to take place in October, is expected to bring experts from around the world who will meet representatives of North Korean enterprises.

DPRK’s First International Crypto Event?

Report: North Korea to Hold a Crypto ConferenceThe Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea (DPRK), the hermit communist state that suffers from bad publicity in the crypto space, is organizing a cryptocurrency and blockchain conference in Pyongyang in October. This is according to a report by the U.S.-based Radio Free Asia (RFA) quoted by the South Korean Yonhap news agency.

The first Korean International Blockchain Conference will be a two-day event in the capital city of the DPRK, starting on October 1. According to the report, the conference will bring together experts in the field from around the world. Participants are also expected to hold meetings with representatives of the North Korean state-run entities on October 3.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a security expert told the radio station that North Korea appears to be trying to show off its capabilities when it comes to cutting-edge crypto and blockchain technologies.

New Hacking Allegations May Overshadow the Conference

Report: North Korea to Hold a Crypto ConferenceThe news about the upcoming Pyongyang event comes after another report implicating the communist regime of exploiting digital security weaknesses in the West to acquire crypto capital through illicit means. Lazarus Group, a cybercrime syndicate often associated with North Korea, has deployed new malware adapted to infect multiple operating systems.

Researchers at the cyber security firm Kaspersky claim the presumed North Korean hackers have recently initiated a new campaign named “Applejeus” using a trojan called Fallchill. The cryptocurrency-stealing software was discovered after it penetrated the IT systems of an unnamed cryptocurrency exchange based in Asia.

The attack took place after one of the platform’s employees downloaded an infected crypto trading application from a legitimate-looking website. The experts found that the Fallchill trojan had been redesigned to target not only Windows PCs but also macOS devices and possibly Linux machines.

North Korea’s Crypto Dossier

Report: North Korea to Hold a Crypto ConferenceThis is not the first time the DPRK is accused of attempting to get hold of stolen cryptocurrency. In March, former NSA official and cyber security expert for the Asia-Pacific region, Priscilla Moriuchi, said the North had obtained at least 11,000 bitcoins (BTC) through mining and hacking in 2017. At the time the value of the crypto fortune was estimated at over $ 200 million USD.

Last year the notorious Lazarus Group was implicated in attacks on South Korean cryptocurrency exchanges. According to intelligence sources in Seoul, North Korean hackers have been involved in the cyberattack on Bithumb, the country’s largest crypto trading platform, which compromised personal data of more than 30,000 users.

Forced to deal with limited access to the global financial system, Pyongyang has been trying to also take advantage of the opportunities that come with cryptocurrencies in terms of unrestricted and anonymous transactions. The seriousness of the intentions of Kim Jong-un’s regime to develop the country’s potential in the space were confirmed by reports that Pyongyang University is conducting crypto courses.

The cruise, which has previously sailed the crystal waters of the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean, this time takes passengers to the ultimate Old World summer destinations – the vessel departs exciting Barcelona, makes stops in glamorous Monte Carlo and of course, tops it off with a beach party in the destination to end all beach parties, Ibiza, before making its way back to Monte Carlo. Passengers can also rest easy at the height of glamour knowing that Coinsbank has spared no expense and the entire vessel is reserved for the cruise.

There will, however, be more than champagne and sunbathing aboard. A much more valuable opportunity presents itself – a direct chance to engage and make connections with leading influencers in blockchain. Over 100 speakers will attend, along with hundreds of industry professionals, renowned thinkers, and blockchain enthusiasts from all over the world. Some of the most notable speakers include a return appearance from John Mcafee, security software tycoon turned crypto hustler, Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com, and Bobby Lee, co-founder of BTCC and board member of Bitcoin Foundation.

Aside from providing luxurious sun and fun for its crypto-minded guests, CoinsBank aims to accelerate the growth of the blockchain community by facilitating the formation of meaningful relationships between industry members. Passengers will have plenty of opportunities to bond and make connection both onboard and on land through activities and shore excursions, and listen to speakers discuss relevant and useful topics such as emerging cryptocurrencies and their effect on current leading cryptocurrencies, expert predictions about the future of blockchain, and tools and techniques for trading digital assets. This is an excellent networking opportunity as well as a chance to gain new and exciting knowledge and strategies in blockchain.

But all work and no play makes even the technology of the future dull, and Coinsbank has packed the cruise with entertainment outside of the disembarkation ports. Onboard, guests will be delighted by scrumptious dinners, a nightly spectacular show, parties on the Pool Deck and 24 hour open bar reception. As if that weren’t enough, an unforgettable sunset BBQ party in the style of the legendary Cafe Del Mar, with celebrities and world-famous DJs, awaits guests in beautiful Ibiza. It’s guests’ last day together – so plan to party hard until you see the sun rise! The cruise then makes its way back to sunny Barcelona, where guests can disembark and go get some delicious tapas with all their newfound blockchain friends.

The Coinsbank Blockchain Cruise is a must-do for all blockchain leaders, forward thinkers, and enthusiasts who want to combine a luxury vacation with an unbelievable business opportunity.
