The Litecoin Summit 2022
The Litecoin Foundation proudly to hosted the Litecoin Summit 2022 for two days at The Link Hotel + Experience, seeing crypto enthusiasts from all over the world coming together in Las Vegas to learn, participate and network. Being the first Litecoin Summit since the pandemic, hundreds gathered each day to hear from speakers ranging from the creator of Litecoin Charlie Lee to John Bollinger the inventor of the Bollinger Bands through to former WWE star, Danielle Moinet (aka Summer Rae).
The Summit lured a variety of influencers and entrepreneurs from across the globe, each from distinct backgrounds with different perspectives on the trajectory of Litecoin and the space as a whole. Athletes went toe-to-toe on the ‘Sport, Crypto and Litecoin’ panel Though the panelists were from varied professional sports backgrounds, they shared a common passion: bringing the worlds of sport and cryptocurrency closer together, The panel included the NFL’s Garrick Jones, former UFC fighter, Ben Askren, and WWE legend, Danielle Moinet. The most popular talking point: athletes being compensated in cryptocurrency, as opposed to ‘fiat currency’.
One of the more familiar names in trading, John Bollinger - inventory of the ‘Bollinger Band’ - gave the audience much more than a lesson in technical analysis. The pioneer trader debunked misconceptions about cryptocurrency and posited why he believed Litecoin had more potential than almost any other currency (not just crypto!). Bollinger cited Litecoin as one of the “three biggest crypto trading vehicles” in the world. He also emphasized that “cryptocurrency is given a bad name, as not a real asset - but that’s absolute baloney”. Especially as Bollinger sees cryptocurrency - and digital assets - as a viable replacement for fiat currency in the future.
Charlie Lee kicked off the 2022 Litecoin Summit by underscoring the massive adoption Litecoin had seen over the last year, in spite of the bearish crypto market. In his address, Charlie also highlighted the key attributes of ‘sound money’, effectively summarizing his vision for Litecoin and its future developments. Charlie also discussed some of the initiatives the Litecoin Foundation had undertaken in order to improve the ‘accessibility’ and ‘awareness’ of Litecoin, including mainstream coverage - from CNBC to Fox News - and the tremendous statistics achieved through strategic partnerships, namely PayPal, Moneygram, the Litecoin VISA and Mastercard deals and the ability to purchase Litecoin at global ATMs.
For two day the Summit celebrated the best in the crypto industry as well as numerous leaps forward in Litecoin's development. Including, a new lightning-compatible wallet for Litecoin! Features revealed were the wallet’s ability to perform ‘atomic swaps’ (instantaneous swaps between assets), support for opt-in confidential transactions using Litecoin's MWEB and more security and performance focus with Lightning network capabilities! Lastly there was a after party overlooking the Vegas strip! Thanks again to all who attended - in-person and the 1000s via livestream - those who spoke, sponsored and volunteered!
The Litecoin community is celebrating its 10th Anniversary! A milestone in the history of the cryptocurrency industry. To commemorate this occasion the Litecoin Foundation curated a collection for it’s first ever NFT drop. 10 NFTs, made by 10 artists from all around the world, who are part of the Litecoin community and have been handpicked by Foundation, helping to celebrate our anniversary through their own very unique artistic styles.

Best Marketers in Blockchain 2020
The 34 individuals presented in this report are the marketing managers who not only rose to the occasion, but launched it out of the stratosphere. Their strategies proved to increase exposure for their blockchain network on social media, which translated into growth in their company’s fundamental health data.
Blockchain marketers face a very unique challenge. Not only do they have to compete with thousands of other platforms to attract a limited set of developers, but they also have to raise awareness about nascent (but powerful!) technology that the mainstream still associates with hackers and criminal activity. To top it off, they have to grow this product globally from the get-go, to keep the network decentralized. All that, without any playbook of course.
Flipside Crypto collaborated with the Tie to identify these gamechangers, whose organizations were measured by the lift in FCAS Rating, which indicates user and developer activity as well as overall market risk, and growth in Twitter mentions across 2020.
Legendary Space Leader and Innovator to Accept Honor at Austin Space Conference Nov. 5
New Worlds announced today that Dr. PeteWorden will be the recipient of the inaugural Space Cowboy Award to be presented at the first annual Space Cowboy Gala Nov. 5 at the Austin Renaissance Hotel. Dr. Worden will be honored for his role in pioneering and supporting the technologies, concepts and innovators which created the New Space revolution or Frontier Movement, made familiar to the public in the projects of Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and the new generation of commercial space companies opening space to human settlement.
“Pete is a one of a kind disruptor and leader in the space community, a guy who doesn’t take credit but deserves a lot,” said Rick Tumlinson, Co-founder of New Worlds. “He has worked for decades within the government and now outside of it to both make things happen and to support others to do so. The entire space revolution now underway has his fingerprints on it, and many of the projects and companies who are paving the way into space either got their start, their ideas, their technologies or their first shot from Pete or an organization he helped create.”
The Space Cowboy Award is presented to that person who has ridden out ahead of their field or community and made significant contributions to the opening of the frontier. Their work, spirit and legacy have helped tame technologies, broken down the risks or driven forward the culture or community in the name of settlement. The Space Cowboy is an individual—sometimes a loner, always a leader—who is always ranging far ahead of their peers, calling out challenges and drawing on their imaginations, talent and grit to blaze a trail into the future.
“The sorts of projects Pete has led or supported are exactly those we need to be able to get to and from space efficiently and cheaply--and to be able to live and work there when we do,” said Dr. Phil Metzger, New Worlds Research Director and professor of Astrophysics at the University of Central Florida. “He has an in depth understanding of what we need to do the job, and without fanfare he puts together the teams and people to make it happen, over and over again.”
Dr. Worden’s resume is exhaustive. Notably, he put together the Clementine lunar probe mission that helped verify the existence of water on the poles of the Moon. Pete also led the U.S. Air Force’s DC-X vertical take off and landing program in the 1990s that paved the way for the systems now being used by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Jeff Bezo’s Blue Origin and others. He then became a Congressional Fellow, followed by assuming the role of Center Director at Silicon Valley’s NASA Ames Research Center. Under his leadership Ames became a center and incubator for innovative new space companies and projects, giving an early home to such companies as Moon Express (the first commercial company to get permission to fly to the Moon), Made in Space (the first company to fly a 3D printer in space), Deep Space Industries (one of the world’s first asteroid resource companies), Singularity University and many others.
Pushing the boundaries of human experience and exploration even further, Dr. Worden now heads the Breakthrough Prize Foundation based in Mountain View, California. The organization is developing the technologies to send the first mission to another Solar System while supporting a wide array of innovative space activities around the globe.
The award will be presented at the First Annual Space Cowboy Gala and Ball, to be held at the Renaissance Hotel in Austin, Texas on November 5th as part of the New Worlds Conference and Symposium. The Gala is a fundraiser for New World’s educational initiatives and will feature space themed costumes, music and dancing. Festivities will begin at 7 p.m. The Space Settlement Symposium runs Friday and Saturday, November 4th and 5th at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. Dr. Worden is also the featured guest of the Conference’s “Let’s Do Launch” VIP Luncheon event on Saturday Nov. 5 at 12:30, where he will discuss the Breakthrough Foundation and its planned interstellar missions.

Wanted: Space Settlers. New Worlds 2015 Conference to Focus on Colonizing the Moon, Mars and Free Space
The New Worlds Institute announced today it’s inaugural event, to be held in the Palmer Event Center in Austin, Texas October 16–17. New Worlds 2015 is a different kind of space event. The renaissance affair will be a conference, a gathering of minds, a series of workshops, an art exhibit, a cultural experience, a concert, and most importantly, it will be an all-inclusive discussion about humanity’s future as we migrate to new worlds.
The core premise of the event and the organization is that the first settlers of the Solar System are alive right now, and it is time to begin to focus on the technologies, tools and culture they will need to open the frontier. This is the purpose of New Worlds 2015.
“New Worlds 2015 is going to be something new in the space field, something that steps out of the airlock of what a space event is supposed to be,” said Rick Tumlinson, Founder of the New Worlds Institute. “Our goal is to take the serious core of science and engineering we will need to build new communities in space and wrap it in a cultural experience that is fun, challenging and generally mind blowing.”
Recently billionaires such as Jeff Bezos of Amazon, PayPal billionaire Elon Musk, Paul Allen of MicroSoft, Richard Branson and many others have begun to build spaceships designed to carry regular people into space. Some such as Musk declare outright that they intend to put the first settlers on Mars. Joining them are national entities like the United Arab Emirates who just announced a multi-billion dollar space program aimed at the Red Planet, China which is designing its own Moon base plans, and other countries and projects to be announced soon. NASA is also rapidly moving towards supporting the opening of space to citizens as a focus of its human spaceflight program.
“New Worlds 2015 is going to be something new in the space field, something that steps out of the airlock of what a space event is supposed to be.” — Rick Tumlinson | Chairman of the Board, New Worlds InstituteElon Musk says he’ll be landing on Mars by 2030,” Meagan Crawford, New Worlds Executive Director added. She continued: “The premise of the Institute and New Worlds Conference is that while these bright minds work to build new space ships to carry people out into space, someone needs to focus on what we will do when we get there — how we will live, prosper and create the next level of human civilization.”
Featured talks on colonizing the Moon, Mars and Free Space, space solar power, the space station and its relevance to colonizing the solar system will join presentations by New Space start ups and businesses leaders working to create a space economy. Stories from real space fliers and astronauts will be interspersed between sessions by top experts in such areas as biology, engineering, design, science and space systems. Short, high-level talks on such things as life extension, farming on Mars, the military in space, and genetic engineering will round out the event. On Friday parallel events will include workshops on crowdsourcing settlement solutions, empowering women in space and other important aspects of the space revolution.
“The age of human space exploration is just beginning and this event is a sampler of the different ideas and opportunities the Institute will be looking to cultivate, It’s a starting point for professionals and students to tell the community their dreams” said Jay Milla, Executive Producer of the event. “We’re also including art, music and various workshops for people to ‘think tank’ what is to come. Your crazy idea is welcome here!”
New Worlds 2015 will feature a student competition called “Cities in Space” in which middle and high school students will create 3D or video models of a 10,000 person colony. Students of all ages are encouraged to attend and participate in both the conference sessions and the cultural events such as the art show and the concert. The New Worlds Institute is offering extreme discounts to students, with prices starting at just $15 a day, to encourage the active participation of the future space settlers. Students are encouraged register now to reserve this special discounted price.
While the Institute itself intends to focus on serious research into the technologies and engineering challenges needed to create real human cities in space, the group believes that there also needs to be a cultural element included in what it calls the “breakout”. Thus the event will feature such unusual elements as an art show and a rock concert/dance party featuring the techno-rock band Arc Attack, known for using Tesla coils and amazing lightning effects in its show, complimented by performance artists Nadis Warriors and The Clergy.
“New Worlds 2015 is an experiment, said Tumlinson. Space has been boring too long. Our goal is to plant the seeds of a new and dynamic space culture that will begin to grow in the years ahead so those who will literally build the first human space colonies can be ready when the ships are are ready to carry them out there. It may sound crazy, just as 20 years before the MayFlower saying you might go across the ocean and start a new community in that New World sounded crazy. But it will also be incredibly fun.”The New Worlds Institute is producing this event as the first in a series of social gatherings and conferences meant to engage the public, the business world and the scientific community in a constructive dialog about not just how we get there, but how we stay. The two-day event will highlight concepts and ideas about building the first human communities on the Moon, Mars and in the free space between worlds.
This time we go together.
This time we take it from no one.
This time we give it to everyone.
