2022 Paris Blockchain Week Summit Begins on April 13th

A physical meet-up event can sound rare in a world where online communities are moving an impressive amount of money. The Paris Blockchain Week Summit (PBWS) will kick off on April 13th, among other crypto-related events in the city.

The event will begin at Palais Brogniart, the former headquarters of the French Stock Exchange. The summit’s organizer wish to bring together a long list of well-known names in the industry, investors, and blockchain enthusiasts.

An Exclusive Event for Crypto Enthusiasts

Attracting over 3,000 guests and more than 100 media partners, the PBWS is the culmination of the week-long crypto festival in Paris.

Traceability, using blockchain for innovation, digital governance, and international regulatory cooperation are just some of the PBWS topics. The conference will bring together experts to discuss a long list of popular matters in the industry. 

Leading blockchain and digital asset firms will be on hand to offer their experiences and perspectives on the market. In order to help you understand the blockchain sector, this event brings together a varied mix of people.

The event’s organizers promise to invite the sharpest minds, game changers, inventors, regulators, and market insiders. Attending conferences with business experts and top investors will also be interesting. 

The Paris Blockchain Week is Europe’s largest conference and exhibition on blockchain technology and digital assets. The most famous blockchain groups will organize numerous events over one week in the Ville Lumière

A Look Into the Summit’s Program

The easiest way to understand what we should expect from the event is to read its guests list. It is hard to find the most prominent name, but we could certainly mention a few of them:

  • Changpeng Zao (CZ), founder and CEO of Binance. He is a seasoned entrepreneur with a proven track record of launching new businesses that have succeeded.
  • Brad Garlinghouse, the current CEO at Ripple. He previously held different managerial roles at Yahoo! and was the AOL’s President of Consumer Applications from 2009 to 2012.
  • Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO and founder of FTX. The platform is now the largest crypto exchange globally (out of China, where Binance still leads the market).

The list above is still far from being complete, and more details are available on the event’s official website. In terms of topics, instead, let us mention below the four primary areas of interest at the blockchain summit:

  • Open finance: the organizers wish to put together different players in the crypto-financial world. Expect to find VCs, lenders, investors, and other fundamental actors on the market.
  • Enterprise blockchain: blockchain technology is gaining importance in the corporate world. Many traditional companies are looking at the sector with interest, and the summit will hold several discussions on the matter.
  • Public policy: researchers and regulators will be able to exchange views on the current state of the market and its future.
  • Tech builders: developers and startup teams make up the sector’s future, and the organizers are aware of this fact.

April 12th: Paris NFT Day

On April 12th, the French capital will host the Paris NFT Day, an event that many crypto enthusiasts wish to attend. As we have already mentioned, the whole week will see the organization of crypto-related events in the city.

We are observing a continuous increase in the popularity of NFT applications in music, art, and other sectors. The event organizers label it a “life-size experience allowing a total immersion in the Web3 universe.”

The NFT Day will have thousands of attendees, with over a hundred speakers and sponsors. We see how the experience will touch various areas where NFTs are popular by looking at the program. Let us mention luxury, sport, art, gaming, and the metaverse.

Our Final Thoughts on the Paris Summit

PBWS was the first international blockchain and crypto-assets conference conducted in France, where it appeared in April 2019. ONX-Blockchain and Woorton, two well-known organizations in the industry, are behind the whole event.
