It’s been approximately 8 months since the BSV enterprise blockchain ecosystem came together in an event that celebrates the original vision that Satoshi Nakamoto had when he launched Bitcoin 13 years ago. There are only a few weeks left before the Bitcoin and blockchain community converges in the Middle East for the biggest event of its kind this year. The BSV Global Blockchain Convention takes place in Dubai on May 24-26, and if you haven’t grabbed your tickets yet, here’s why you should book your spot immediately.
The speakers—the world’s leading minds on Bitcoin and blockchain
The convention, which has been dubbed CoinGeek Conference in previous iterations, is popular for many things, but perhaps none more than its ability to bring the world’s brightest minds together as speakers. They deliver keynote presentations, give speeches, answer audience questions, exchange ideas on the panel discussion, and even interact with the audience one-to-one.
Dr. Craig Wright will be among the speakers in Dubai, and that’s enough to have any Bitcoin enthusiast rushing to book their spot at the event. Satoshi’s speeches in previous events have been the highlight, from his fearless criticism on Big Tech and their predatory nature in Zurich last year to his speech on how Bitcoin is an ordering and timestamp system in New York.
It’s not just the keynote presentations, however. Dr. Wright never shies away from a lively debate on Bitcoin with both the believers and the skeptics. He has gone head-to-head with economist George Gilder and shared the stage with the godfather of cryptography Ian Grigg alongside skeptic Nouriel “Dr. Doom” Roubini. Even the founding fathers of blockchain technology—Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta—also graced the stage with Dr. Wright to talk about the evolution of blockchain technology.
In addition to Dr. Wright, some of the developers and startup founders pushing Bitcoin adoption globally will also take to the stage. They include the founders of HandCash, Centbee, Centi, Elas Digital, FanFactory Ltd, Britevue, VoguePay, Haste Arcade, Tokenized, BlockReview and many others.
The event will also be graced by non-blockchain leaders, including government officials, financial experts, developers, venture capitalists, and more.
The presentations—new products, core updates, fresh features, partnerships
While the speakers will have a lot to delve into, including the development of the global blockchain ecosystem, regulations, NFTs, DeFi, Bitcoin SV’s new records over the past year, and more, BSV Global Blockchain Convention is known for the mind-blowing announcements of new products, core updates and fresh features on existing products, new partnerships within BSV and beyond and so much more.
Already, Jimmy Nguyen, the founding president of the BSV Blockchain Association, has hinted that the association’s partnership with a UAE university has led to the development of a prototype for a BSV-powered academic and professional credentials platform, and he believes it could be ready for presentation at the event, as he told CoinGeek Backstage.
With the Dubai event expected to be even bigger than its predecessors and the BSV ecosystem now bigger than it’s ever been, there are bound to be way more announcements in the upcoming event, and you certainly don’t want to miss them.
The extra factor—it’s in Dubai
Dubai will be hosting the BSV Global Blockchain Convention for the first time ever. In fact, it will be the first time the event goes to the Middle East, a region that has become a global leader in blockchain adoption.
Dubai is renowned for several things, most of all its luxurious shopping experiences, its buzzing and lively nightlife, and state-of-the-art architecture, including the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
While all these are undoubtedly alluring, Bitcoin enthusiasts will certainly yearn more to connect with the leaders of the Dubai blockchain ecosystem, most of whom will attend the event. Be it startup founders who are building applications on Bitcoin for the masses, the venture capitalists driving the growth of these startups or the government officials facilitating the growth of the industry, the event is the ideal place to link up and interact with them.
The networking won’t be limited to the local innovators. At the event, you’ll get to meet the personalities in the global Bitcoin ecosystem, all of whom are eager to not only expand their network but offer their advice and guidance to fellow founders as well as share the secrets to their success and even talk about what the future holds for their companies and the industry as a whole.
Companies and brands that wish to be part of the event can sign up here to be exhibitors or sponsors for the event, and with thousands expected to attend and tens of thousands more viewing it online, it could be the best marketing you could undertake.
Media entities will also get all the help they need to cover the event, with CoinGeek facilitating the entire process. Upon signing up here, they will get access to the speakers who will answer any questions they have and even get dedicated facilities for their staff, including media-only areas and interview rooms.
As we count down the days to May 24 for the BSV Global Blockchain Convention, ensure that you’ve booked your spot at the landmark event by grabbing your tickets here. See you in Dubai.
