World Blockchain Summit Gears up For 26th Edition in Dubai

The World Blockchain Summit is set to return on 1 to 2 November 2023, in Dubai, hosted by Trescon, the global business events and consulting firm.

As the World Blockchain Summit start date closes in, the event, which will take place at the Address Dubai Marina, has revealed its plans to unite over 2,000 web3 decision-makers and become a major focal point for global web3 and blockchain innovators to take note of the region’s efforts towards a web3-driven future.

With strategic partners, like Dubai AI and Web3 Campus by DIFC, the largest cluster of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and web3 companies in MENA, the summit offers a platform for top-tier web3 investors, enterprises, industry leaders, and entrepreneurs to explore collaboration and investment opportunities while discussing the emerging trends and innovations shaping the industry.

Dubai’s established digital landscape, flourishing investment ecosystem, and innovative workforce create the perfect foundation for innovators and founders as we move beyond the challenges of the 2022 crypto winter.

The UAE is playing a pivotal role by implementing initiatives such as the Central Bank Digital Currency Strategy, known as the Digital Dirham, establishing the Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) in Dubai, advancing the Dubai Blockchain Strategy, and launching the Dubai AI & Web3 Campus by DIFC. Notably, the campus also announced specialised commercial licences for AI and Web3 projects, further accelerating the adoption of blockchain solutions and the proliferation of digital assets within the economy.

Driving innovation

The summit will also include the regional finale of the Startup World Cup, organised by the globally acclaimed US-based venture capital firm Pegasus Ventures. The winner of this competition will have the opportunity to present at the global finals held in San Francisco, with the chance to secure $1million in funding.

The World Blockchain Summit will unveil the latest trends and advancements in the field, offering a platform for accessing funding opportunities, expert guidance, and invaluable networking.

The Summit features engaging keynote speeches, panel discussions, and presentations from some of the leading voices from the blockchain and web3 space. The agenda will cover key topics, including:

  • Value creation in the metaverse
  • NFT market overview: Trends and opportunities
  • Bridging DeFi and CeFi
  • DAOs: A business-building opportunity
  • Regulation of crypto assets

The Dubai edition of the World Blockchain Summit boasts a number of sponsors including: Unicoin; Legacy Network; Zeebu; Qlindo; CoreSui Galileo Protocol; Innes GlobalSastanaqqamYardhubMimo; Cryptounity; Umma Life, as well as Arabs in Blockchain.
