With new regulatory frameworks for digital assets and issuance of commercial licenses for web3 projects, Dubai is all set to become the blockchain capital in the Middle East region.

World Blockchain Summit, an event by Trescon, returns to Dubai on 1-2 November 2023 at the Address Dubai Marina, with strategic partners like Dubai AI & Web3 Campus by DIFC, the largest cluster of Artificial Intelligence and Web3 companies in MENA.

The Summit, one of the longest-running global blockchain series, has become an integral platform where top blockchain-leaders, industry veterans, web3 innovators and visionaries converge to debate over the current trends and innovations that are driving the inclusion of blockchain based solutions in key sectors of the global economy.

Dubai, one of the leading financial hubs in the region, is rapidly becoming the global blockchain capital through its progressive regulations, favourable investment climate and expanding digital infrastructure. As per a recent Fintech Global report, Blockchain and Crypto emerged as a dynamic subsector within the UAE’s FinTech landscape, commanding a substantial 42 per cent of the total deals in 2023. With the establishment of Dubai AI & Web3 Campus by DIFC, Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) Dubai and the Dubai Blockchain Strategy is attracting global investors and innovators, the opportunity is ripe for the UAE to foster a thriving digital economy.

The Summit is bringing together 2000+ web3 decision makers, 300+ investors and 100+ speakers and also features the regional finale of the Startup World Cup organised by the prestigious US-based venture capital firm Pegasus Ventures, offering the winner an opportunity to pitch at the global finals hosted in San Francisco and a chance to win US$ 1 million in funding.

#WBSDubai features exciting keynote speeches, use-case presentations by leading blockchain visionaries and experts, and captivating panel discussions on core issues that dominate the web3 space today. The focal points of discussions at the summit encompass Web3 regulations, NFTs in music and entertainment, Web3 gaming, privacy in blockchain, tokenomics and more.
