“We are living in exciting times. Blockchain technology will certainly have incredibly profound effects on business, government, and society. It is indisputable that in a few years we will see new business models, in a similar way to what we lived with the Internet a few years ago,” says Victoria Gago, Co-founder of the EBC.
“We remain true to our goal of accelerating, promoting and connecting the blockchain ecosystem in Europe. This online edition is an opportunity to increase exponentially our impact in the space. Never before in history has there been a platform with so much quality content about blockchain," says Daniel Salmerón, Co-founder of the EBC. " We expect to shatter our past attendance record and this translates into multiplying the networking opportunities for our attendees."
The novelty of this year are the highly specialized 45-minute workshops that will seek to delve into areas such as Digital Identity in Blockchain or how to design a decentralized mobility ecosystem, and which will be given by Daimler, Maersk and the European Commission, among others.
