LEAP 2022, one of the tech events of the year, took place on February 1-3 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and the BSV blockchain ecosystem was well represented. CoinGeek Backstage caught up with VXPASS President Justin Pauly on the sidelines of the event to talk about how his platform is giving its users digital health sovereignty, leveraging the BSV enterprise blockchain.
The inaugural LEAP 2022 event saw over 100,000 visits over the course of three days, with over 500 speakers and an even higher number of exhibitors. More than $6 billion worth of new deals were announced at the event. Pauly was one of the representatives of the BSV blockchain ecosystem, and as he told CoinGeek’s Becky Liggero, LEAP 2022 was quite a success for his company. “We’re very excited to be here and for VXPASS to have representation and be invited to these places,” he stated.
“At VXPASS we’re really focused on digital health sovereignty, and that means bringing medical records that are patient-owned,” Pauly said.
VXPASS utilizes the BSV blockchain for everything, Pauly shared. “Our platform is blockchain-native, so our entire company is based on not just hashing things on-chain, but really the corporate structure has been on BSV since the beginning,” he explained.
Pauly has been traveling the world over in the past few months, noting that more people are waking up to the potential of Bitcoin to solve many of the problems we face today, be it in healthcare where VXPASS operates, social media where Twetch is leading the blockchain growth, gaming where CryptoFights is setting new records and many other sectors.
As Pauly put it, he has really seen people “gravitate towards blockchain not as a future problem but a now solution.”
In January, Pauly was part of the BSV blockchain contingent at CES in Las Vegas, an event where Bitcoin-based platforms like VXPASS and Omniscape were very well received. Since then, his company has signed a new deal that will give it a presence in the 50 states in the U.S., expanded its project in Africa, and believes it will soon expand to Saudi Arabia.
