Here's 14 Cryptocurrency and Blockchain companies exhibiting at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020
I decided to take a closer peek at the "Digital Money" track at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and who was on it that were Blockchain focused companies. Below are companies who are incorporating Cryptocurrency and Blockchain technology (that will be at CES 2020). Read on to find out who they are and what they share with us eager techies.
CES has come a long way since it first debuted in 1967 attracting 17,500 attendees and hosting 117 exhibitors in New York City.
Here are some numbers from CES 2019 (last year):
But, you know what's crazy? Despite a strong 52 year history, CES still has more new to offer. Enter, the Blockchain. Believe it or not, despite the gargantuan scale of the CES event, the elegantly coined "Digital Money" is relatively small.
No seriously, look at the scale of this:
The Sand Expo Tech West (pictured above) is one of literally dozens of halls sprawled across most of the Vegas Strip. It's just mind boggling to consider how nascent the Blockchain industry is. It will be fun to watch our "hallway" grow larger as time goes on. (To be fair, "Digital Money" doesn't include ALL Blockchain companies at CES but it does indicate how small the general category is)
Here's a list of some Blockchain and Cryptocurrency focused Companies exhibiting at CES:
ANote - A Luxemborg-based platform which offers a marketplace for buying and selling music rights and a bridge between investors and music right owners
Canaan - Produces Blockchain servers ASIC microprocessor chips as seen in the AvalonMiner units from Beijing, China

Whew! That's a bunch of them. I will update and add more as I find them as well as provide some additional reporting on what is cool and innovative in the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain space. It's exciting to see this category grow and also how international this tech and industry is becoming.
