Date – 4-5 May, 2022
Venue – Parklane, Limassol, Cyprus
A luxury spa and resort hotel in Limassol Parklane gathered the brightest and most influential minds in the crypto space for Blockchain Fest 2022 on May 4 and 5.
Parklane became a meeting point for the world’s most disruptive fintech trends, where the event gathered over 700 entrepreneurs, traders, investors, developers and industry enthusiasts.
There were six panels, numerous on-site interviews, an expert conference program and transformational workshops exploring the transforming role of blockchain, GameFi, NFT and more. Renowned speakers from blockchain and digital asset companies shared their stories and insights on the market and its prospects.
The honor of being the most debated topic belonged to NFTs and GameFi. A discussion of brands in the Metaverse and greater customer experience through the NFT minting platform Block.co were headed by its CEO Alexis Nicolaou and chief operating officer George Agathangelou, capturing most of the attention at the conference. The NFT and GameFi theme was extended by iLogos founder and chairman Alexander Goldybin, and practical approaches to investing, with emphasis on DeFi and market-neutral (non-speculative) strategies, were exhaustively examined by DCM Group director Alexander Douedari. VeChain Tech’s ecosystem manager Dimitris Neocleous discussed NFTs beyond the hype, while crypto entrepreneur Eloisa Marchesoni added a fresh perspective on NFTs and gamification as the future of community engagement within Web3.
Advisory and head of financial regulation at law firm AGP, Mihaela Grigoriou, provided a speech to the Blockchain Fest about the regulation of DeFi and CeFi, while European Digital Assets Exchange CEO Mauro Andriotto shared state-of-the-art security token legislation.
The culmination of the event started on the second day between 12:20 pm and 1:00 pm with the panel discussion “Banking in 2022: Banks vs. Crypto.” University of Nicosia’s institutional partnerships manager Nick Assimentos, Bank of Cyprus director of the group compliance division Marios Skandalis and Invest Cyprus deputy director general and head of the HQ unit Marios Tannousis discussed patterns of crypto’s evolution process, coming to the conclusion that while banks are not against crypto, their hands are tied by external regulations.
A new addition to the program was brought by founder and CEO of Christiana Aristidou LLC, Christiana Aristidou, introducing the topic of how tokens are transforming real estate in Cyprus.
Blockchain Fest 2022 strengthened its reputation as the preeminent crypto event in Cyprus by bringing industry trends and cutting-edge news.
