Frankfurt’s Edition of World Blockchain Summit Aims To Connect Global Blockchain Experts And Technology Players in This Space Including Emerging Start-Ups Along With Regional Businesses and IT Leaders From Across Key Industry Verticals
Germany is setting the bar high when it comes to the adoption of blockchain technology. Whilst most countries are focused mostly on the financial and banking sector or even cryptocurrency, Germany has adopted blockchain technology into the energy and aerospace sector with over 110 potential-use cases. Moreover, more than 30 fully funded startups are working solely towards blockchain in the ‘Clean energy’ segment as well! This is probably why the European Union has announced blockchain as their priority for the year including a proposed 30 billion Euro funding into the development of this technology.
Trescon’s World Blockchain Summit is taking place on 25 – 26 June 2018 at The Marriot Frankfurt. The summit is being officially endorsed by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (giz), the Blockchain Bundesverband and the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center.
The summit also gives rise to blockchain startups to meet and interact with some of the biggest names in the industry, as well as meet international venture capitalists to whom they can pitch their ideas and secure the assistance to catapult their business further.
Mohammed Saleem, CEO of Trescon, said that “The European market is a boiling plate ready to explode into the blockchain market. There are 30+ startups in Germany alone, and the rest of the continent is ripe, ready to be plucked. The summit will provide a platform for these enterprises to enjoy the fruit of their labour, as well as expose the continent to the blockchain race.”
After Frankfurt, World Blockchain Summit Series will travel to Singapore, Canada, India, Dubai, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia to end the calendar year of 2018.
