The ‘City of Love’ is also quickly turning out to be the ‘blockchain city’, with the next edition of blockchain-focused international event scheduled for 20th to 24th March, 2023.
A lineup of 400+ speakers
The Paris Blockchain Week is Europe’s biggest industry event, first held in 2019. The latest chapter of the conference will see a host of industry personalities join more than 10,000 attendees from around the world in the French Capital.
As the event’s organisers told Invezz via a press release, for the 4th edition, the LOUVRE will host over 400 speakers from across decentralised finance (DeFi), NFTs, Web3 and the metaverse.
The upcoming event has also attracted 300+ sponsors, about 60% of C-level+ executives and more than 400 media and journalists.
Other than the blockchain space’s brightest minds, the Paris Blockchain Week 2023 will bring together industry disrupters, leading investors and regulators.
Highlighting the lineup will be top blockchain industry personalities such as Draper Associates founder Tim Draper, Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao, Stellar Development Foundation CEO Denelle Dixon, Blockchain.com co-founder Nicolas Cary, Eva Kaili (the Vice President of the European Parliament) and Yat Siu, the co-founder and Executive Chairman of Animoca Brands.
There will also be The Sandbox co-founder and COO Sébastien Borget, Chiliz CEO Alexandre Dreyfus and Ira Auerbach, Senior VP, Head of Digital Assets at Nasdaq.
Blockchain Week Summit and NFTverse
The PBW will involve two main events – a Blockchain Week Summit and an NFTVerse Day.
The Summit takes place over two days and will explore major blockchain technology topics, including Tech Builders, Public Policy, Enterprise Blockchain and Open Finance.
The one-day NFTverse event will focus on areas within the NFTs and Web3 universe, including Web3 Perspectives, Economy of the Metaverse, Technologies & Investments and Virtual Identity.
Among several fringe events will be the Talent Fair and the Paris Blockchain Week Hackathon.
