CoinGeek Live 2020
According to a recent announcement , Gary Vaynerchuk will be speaking at CoinGeek Live in 2 weeks. CoinGeek media will be hosting its 6th annual blockchain conference, with this years event going virtual due to Coronavirus. Gary is one of the most prominent figures in the media space, catering to 2M + followers, and running VaynerMedia. Aside from being a New York Times bestseller author and visionary entrepreneur, Vaynerchuk was an early investor in some of the most successful startups like Twitter, Uber, and Facebook.
On-Chain Social Media
During this years event, Vaynerchuk will be discussing On-Chain Social media, which involves social media on the Blockchain. In todays world, the most popular social media avenues are built on centralized infrastructures, meaning these entities have ultimate control.
Facebook for example does not charge a fee to use its platform, but in return a user hands them personal data that is stored on a server and monetize to generate revenue. This has lead to all sorts of issues revolving around user data and privacy. Social media on the blockchain operates in a decentralized manner, meaning no central party is in control. Popular social platforms like Steemit operate under this model.

Gary Vaynerchuk will be covering the future outlook on Blockchain technology and on-chain social media platforms. In terms of on-chain social platforms, Vaynerchuk will talk about content creators and how they can make a transition to on-chain platforms to maximize revenue.
