CHANGING THE REAL VALUE OF BLOCKCHAIN ACROSS 4 DAYS

World-leading blockchain companies and influential minds demonstrate the true and transformative power of the tech in different sectors. Experience it live across the three major themes unravelling at the exhibition, conferences and workshops:

 

Alternative Investment

The wild ride of cryptocurrencies have been making headlines, but the fact remains that crypto’s value will only move up as mainstream adoption barrels forward. Already many top retailers and private sector companies have started accepting cryptocurrencies – making it a truly lucrative investment opportunity among financial advisors worldwide.

 

Blockchain Beyond Crypto

The power of decentralized technology data points is a breakthrough with distinct advantages: greater transparency, trust, speed and freedom. Meet and hear from diverse organisations building on these advantages to give your business a clear-cut edge – from blockchain-based contracts to public services to patent protections.

 

Blockchain In Finance

As an offshoot of cryptocurrency, Blockchain automatically became the financial industry’s blue-eyed boy. Blockchain has inspired more innovations and transformations across the sector, all of which will take centre-stage across the show. From DeFi models to digital currency policies to CBDCs initiated by governments worldwide.
