Niantic CEO John Hanke Will Talk Pokemon Go at Disrupt SF 2016

TechCrunch announced that John Hanke will be on stage at the Disrupt SF 2016 next month.

John Hanke leads the most hyped startup of the summer. Niantic, maker of Pokemon Go, got hit by the problem every startup dreams of - viral success. Niantic's CEO John Hanke will talk about the experience of sudden success and how to deal with it at TechCrunch's Disrupt SF 2016 next month.

Niantic had and has to fight on several fronts to keep Pokemon Go going forward. There have been severe scalability issues, lack of communication and the epidemic use of bots and other 3rd party software since the augmented reality game launched on July 6. On top of that Niantic needs to keep the over 100 million trainers happy to make sure they stick with the game. The latest statistics show that there is a decline of daily users of Pokemon Go.

Today, new updates of the Pokemon Go apps are rolling out that introduce new feature called Appraisal, but the most important change is the new security measure against bots and Pokemon Go trackers and scanners.

John Hanke joins the strong speaker line-up of Disrupt SF 2016 including Steph Curry, Megan Smith, Mike Judge, Marc Andreessen and Reid Hoffman. The TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2016 will take place in San Francisco from September 12 to 14. Find out the details of the startup show on TechCrunch.
