Coronavirus plague has become a reason why various crypto-related conferences have been postponed.
The latest one that put off the event was TOKEN2049. It's a conference that's being held yearly in Hong Kong. This year TOKEN2049 was supposed to be held in March, but alternatively, it's going to take place at the beginning of October.
The team of this conference made an announcement stating that during the prior weeks, they have been analyzing the circumstances with coronavirus, and even though Hong Kong is controlling the situation correctly, skepticism prevails.
Not only TOKEN2049 delayed its event. Binance also put off the Binance Blockchain Week Vietnam, which was supposed to take place from February 29 to March 4. Binance stated they are going to announce the new date a little later. The team also mentioned that they are going to compensate registered visitors.
The crypto community is doing everything to support the process of dealing with the disease. Recently, a startup company Hyperchain stated it will develop a blockchain-based program for contributions for pharmaceutical equipment to help hospitals in central China.
