European Blockchain Convention

European Blockchain Convention

On April 12-16, 2021, European Blockchain Convention brought together 120 speakers and 2,000 virtual attendees at the biggest meeting point of the blockchain industry in the region. The event consisted of 30 panels that took place over the course of 5 days. All conference sessions with more than 40 hours of video content are now available on demand for €169 + VAT.

Within the EBC 2021 Virtual Event, participants got access to engaging keynotes, panel discussions, workshops, and high-level networking. And even though the networking is provided in recorded sessions, you can still connect with tech leaders, regulators, investors, corporations, developers, and entrepreneurs. By opening your eyes to the revolutionary potential of blockchain, they make important breakthroughs in real data sovereignty.

The combination of participants creates a unique setting to foster the dialog that is going to help everyone make informed decisions. You will learn where innovations are headed, what the next round of regulations may be, and a lot more.

This convention has a different point of view with a wide amount of experts where they exchanged not only knowledge but also practical experience. The topics covered everything from enterprise use cases creator economy to the stablecoin opinions and regulatory acceptability.

I became a crypto asset owner in 2014, when the industry was in its infancy. Before that, I was working in the classic US and European stock markets. Since then, I have gained extensive experience in both cryptocurrency investing and day trading. I am happy to share with readers my experience with crypto exchanges, DeFi and NFT instruments.
