Luxembourg, March 30th, 2021 – The Luxembourg Blockchain Week is a one-week conference organized by the Luxembourg Blockchain Lab, the single point of contact to consolidate and federate the blockchain ecosystem in Luxembourg.
The Luxembourg Blockchain Lab along with its five founding members Infrachain — Lëtzblock, The LHoFT, LIST and SnT — believe that the adoption of blockchain technology will have a significant impact on our daily lives. No matter the industry, blockchain will give access to services that were inaccessible before. The goal of the Luxembourg Blockchain Lab is to translate the promise of Blockchain into concrete results.
The launch edition of the Luxembourg Blockchain Week features a uniquely designed one-week program of concrete blockchain applications in various sectors that are key to Luxembourg and Europe: logistics, health, technology, research and development, finance, public sector, climate, digital assets. The audience will get a unique oversight of the technology’s potential and its impact on citizens and businesses.
The Luxembourg Blockchain Week is honored to have the support from the prime minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel, who will make the inauguration speech, as well as from the minister of finance Pierre Gramegna, who will present the finance stream’s keynote.
The Luxembourg Blockchain Week will take place from April 26 to 30 in a digital format, which will be accessible worldwide.
The Luxembourg Blockchain Week is sponsored by Infrachain, Lëtzblock, The LHoFT, LIST, SnT and Nomadic Labs.
The Luxembourg Blockchain Lab is thrilled to welcome Boston as the guest city of the event. The Boston Blockchain Association will contribute to insightful discussions by bringing their experience from the United States of America.
The tickets are free in order to give access to everybody to the knowledge about blockchain technology and can be found here: www.blockchainweek.lu.
“Blockchain is not only about cryptocurrencies but also about helping us reach our sustainable development goals, securing our health data and enabling more resilient supply chains. I’m excited to see Luxembourg’s blockchain success stories during this year’s blockchain week. It is amazing to see what we can achieve when we bundle up our forces behind an alliance like the Blockchain Lab.”
Emilie Allaert, project lead of the Luxembourg Blockchain Lab, added:
“Luxembourg has a growing blockchain ecosystem which is being nurtured and sees a variety of applications in a number of industries. The Luxembourg Blockchain Lab wants to deliver concrete solutions to various industries. Raising awareness about the technology is also one of our missions, and we hope the Luxembourg Blockchain Week will help newbies and experts discover and embrace the potential of the technology.”
