Designed to foster quality conversations and networking, Proof of Talk will provide a forum for thought leaders to come together, communicate and collaborate to pave a path for more trust in a young industry. The event will take place on June 14 and 15 at the Louvre Palace, Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, France. The event boasts an exceptional lineup of C-suite executives, VCs and founders, Proof of Talk sets a new standard for senior leadership attendance at Web3 events in Europe. Proof of Talk limits its audience to under 1,000 attendees, cultivating an intimate environment for impactful interactions and superior networking.


Tickets are now on sale in limited quantities for the highly anticipated gathering, poised to bring together the most influential thought leaders in the Web3 industry.

Over 75 industry leaders are scheduled to give talks at the new two-day event, with a majority of the audience consisting of C-suite executives, investors and founders. This remarkable concentration of senior leadership makes Proof of Talk the go-to event for networking and forging valuable connections among the brightest minds in the industry. Notably, most CEOs and founders of the top-50 blockchain companies have already confirmed their participation, with featured speakers including:

  • Charles Hoskinson, co-founder of Cardano
  • Pascal Gauthier, CEO of Ledger
  • Stani Kulechov, founder and CEO of Aave
  • Justin Sun, founder of Tron
  • Staci Warden, CEO of Algorand Foundation
  • Marieke Flament, CEO of NEAR Foundation

In addition, the guest and speaker list includes carefully selected high-potential startups, esteemed government representatives from Germany, the United Kingdom and France, and distinguished regulatory experts from various global jurisdictions. Notably, senior representatives from internationally respected institutions such as the World Economic Forum, OECD and European Commission will grace the event with their presence.

The first day of the event is focused on past learnings and the theme “Bringing trust back into Web3,” which will feature various forums and panels to help shape the future of the Web3 industry with integrity and trust. Industry changemakers are invited to step forward and openly discuss the industry’s most pressing issues in a safe forum in order to restore trust in the decentralized revolution.

Conversely, the second day looks ahead to the future, bringing together the most promising and pre-selected Web3 startups as well as esteemed investors such as Softbank, The Spartan Group, Fabric Ventures, Shima Capital and Animoca Brands to ignite creativity and provide opportunities for founders and investors alike to collaborate and connect.

Initially scheduled as an invite-only event, word-of-mouth caused a huge demand from the Web3 industry and event organizers. As a result, Germany-based investment fund X Ventures opted to release limited tickets to the public.

Across both days, attendees will have access to insightful panels, a breakout session, keynotes, fireside chats and open Q&A sessions in addition to the freedom to mingle with major media representatives.

Zohair Dehnadi, partner at event organizers X Ventures, commented:

“We are incredibly proud to host an event that promises to bring together the brightest minds and top CEOs from the world’s most influential blockchain companies. We are inviting C-level executives, founders, influencers, legal experts and regulatory authorities to this unparalleled event. We acknowledge that the Web3 industry needs a reset after experiencing challenges with scams and rug pulls, unprofessionalism and short-sighted greed. We are determined to initiate critical conversations around re-establishing trust because we firmly believe the decentralization movement offers a chance to change the world for the better. Above all else, we want to reignite the drive and passion that initially drew us, the event organizers, to the world of decentralized technology. Proof of Talk offers leaders a vital platform to share their ideas, best practices and insights on how to shape the future of the Web3 industry and pave the path for trust. We hope more industry leaders will join us for two days of thought-provoking discussions, cutting-edge insights and unparalleled networking opportunities.”
