LAS VEGAS, Jan. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Black Cactus Global (OTC Markets:BLGI) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Lawrence Cummins, CEO, attended the 48th Annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.  Mr. Cummins was also invited to speak at the Klosters Forum, one of the proceedings hosted by Klosters Innovative Partners.  The Klosters Forum aims to bring together disruptive and inspirational minds to tackle some of the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges. 

The World Economic Forum brought together a record number of heads of state, government and international organizations with leaders from business, civil society, academia, the arts and media. The agenda of this year’s forum ranges from the shaping of the new industrial innovation revolution, to the shared future of global economics, to the rise of new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain.

At the Klosters Forum and the Klosters Innovation Partners events, Mr.  Cummins sat on numerous well attended panels designed to educate investors, business leaders, and government delegates about blockchain and its potential, and potentially disruptive, applications.  Mr. Cummins stated, “My biggest challenge has been enlightening people to the fact that Bitcoin and other digital currencies are merely applications that run on the blockchain. Hence the real focus, the holy grail if you will, is the blockchain and not the cryptocurrency derivatives.”

While at Davos, Mr. Cummins and Black Cactus Global’s Chairman, Harp Sangha met with numerous delegates from international business firms, government agencies, and NGO’s to identify and secure business opportunities for Black Cactus’ Blockchain and Smart Contract solutions for a wide array of applications in Financial Services, Healthcare, Entertainment, Payment Services, Real Estate Operations, Transportation, Smart Cities and numerous other sectors.
