World Blockchain Summit is back in the Emirates for Round 02

After the success of the first summit in 2017, the Middle East’s biggest blockchain conference is back for an even bigger second edition.

Date, Dubai: After a successful conference in 2017 that hosted more than 1000 delegates, exhibitors, sponsors, investors and solution providers, Trescon’s World Blockchain Summit is back to retain its title as ‘The Middle East’s Largest Blockchain Conference’. The summit will take place on the 24 th and 25 th of October 2018, at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai city.

Ever since the whole ‘Blockchain Boom’, which saw ledger based services and startups accumulate more than US$ 500 Million in funding globally, the conference will put into perspective the diverse industry adoption processes as well as the digitization of assets for business operations.

Another topic which has raised questions across the World is the ‘Need for Regulatory Commissions and Charter Laws’ for the wide-scale adoption of ledger based technologies. As some governments remain either tight-lipped or mute around the subject, representatives from vocal governments will be taking part in an exclusive ‘All Government’ panel at the World Blockchain Summit Dubai.

The panel will feature Mr Jason Hsu (Congressman from the Legislative Yuan Taiwan), Mr Bitange Ndemo (Chairman for the AI & Blockchain Task Force of Kenya), Mr Oleksii Mushak (Member of Parliament for Ukraine), Mr Gilbert Reveillon (President of ICT & Digital Economy, CNCCEF France), Mr Vit Jedlicka (President, Free Republic of Liberland) and Dr Ian Gauci (Partner at the Afilexion Alliance for Malta). The panel will discuss the regulatory landscape for nations, as well as talk about the ‘Future of Blockchain in Governance’.

The summit will also provide a platform for blockchain experts and solution providers to interact with industry leaders and investors, to put the economic standpoint in focus.

The ICO Grand Slam, which is a dedicated platform for verified ICOs to pitch their idea in front of renowned investors and hedge funds, will be taking place on Day 1 (24 th of October, 2018) of the summit. ICOs stand a chance to raise up to US$ 2 Million in funding, as well as experience the global market first-hand!

The summit will also play host to the regional qualifiers of the ‘Startup World Cup’, held in association with Fenox Venture Capital. The winner at the summit will win an all-expenses-paid trip to San Francisco to compete at the finals of the ‘Startup World Cup’, and possibly walk away with a US$ 1 Million grand prize. Mohammed Saleem, CEO of Trescon, has stated that “Dubai has always been a hub for technological innovations. It definitely surprised us, when we had a stellar outcome for the first summit 2017. We now know that we cannot expect anything less from the ‘City of Gold’, and are now committed to turning Dubai into the blockchain capital of the world”.
