Mark your calendars for the 14th and 15th of June, 2023, as the Louvre Palace, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, prepares to host Proof of Talk, the pinnacle of Web3 leadership and networking events. With the rallying cry of ‘Bringing Back Trust into Web3’, this summit is poised to be a hotbed of innovation, collaboration, and transformation.
This inaugural edition of Proof of Talk is set to be a star-studded affair, featuring luminaries such as Charles Hoskinson, Co-Founder of Cardano, Pascal Gauthier, CEO of Ledger, Stani Kulechov, Founder & CEO of Aave, Justin Sun, Founder of Tron, Staci Warden, CEO of Algorand Foundation, and Marieke Flament, CEO of NEAR Foundation, and Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon Technologies.
This is your chance to rub shoulders with the brightest minds shaping the future of Web3.
But the guest list doesn’t stop there. High-potential startups, government officials, and regulatory authorities from European powerhouses like the UK, Germany, and France will also be in attendance.
Adding to this impressive roster are senior representatives from the World Economic Forum, OECD, and the European Commission, ensuring that Proof of Talk will be a melting pot of cross-border interactions and collaborations.
While the summit has an immense scope, however, it’s designed to have less than 1000 participants. This’ll ensure meaningful conversations—more signal, less noise. X Ventures, Proof of Talk’s organizer, initially planned an invite-only event. But word-of-mouth caused high public demand, motivating them to release limited tickets.
In Zohair Dehnadi’s words, X Ventures is “incredibly proud to host an event which promises to bring together the brightest minds and top CEOs from the world’s most influential blockchain companies. [They] are inviting C-level executives, founders, influencers, legal experts and regulatory authorities to this unparalleled event.”
Solving Web3’s Problems. Restoring Trust.
Web3 is still a nascent industry. There have been many negative instances like hacks, frauds, and scams in its evolutionary journey so far. Proof of Talk, however, strives to solve these issues for good.
On Day 1—June 14, 2023—Proof of Talk will have various panels, debates, and forums to engage thought leaders in conversations around ‘Bringing Back Trust into Web3.’ By providing a safe platform to changemakers, the summit will thus motivate them to reflect on past lessons and communicate their views on the problems currently facing Web3.
Over 85 industry leaders, more than 80% of whom are CEOs and Founders contributing $150+ billion in total market cap, will interact at Proof of Talk. This marks the biggest senior leadership attendance rate among all Web3 events so far this year.
The goal is to make Web3 and the overall decentralized revolution more reliable and relatable for everyone. This’ll drive long-term adoption, solve existing problems, and restore trust in the prospective Web3 space.
As Zohair says: “We acknowledge that the Web3 industry needs a reset after experiencing challenges with scams and rug pulls, unprofessionalism and short-sighted greed. We are determined to initiate critical conversations around re-establishing trust because we firmly believe the decentralisation movement offers a chance to change the world for the better.”
Shaping the Future. Sparking Innovation.
Proof of Talk is an action-oriented endeavour to shape Web3’s future. In addition to knowledge-sharing and networking, it provides a unique chance for promising projects to showcase their work to highly-connected and global mentors, patrons, partners, and investors.
On Day 2—June 15—some of the most potential Web3 startups and projects will take center-stage at Proof of Talk. The cohort will be selected and vetted beforehand, ensuring accountability and risk mitigation while they interact with prominent investors like Softbank, The Spartan Group, Fabric Ventures, Shima Capital, and Animoca Brands.
The participating startups have collectively raised more than $500 million in various funding rounds previously. While the VCs coming to this event have altogether invested in over 2000 projects across market segments.
Proof of Talk will spark innovation by opening the floor for founders, investors, and other stakeholders to connect freely. This promotes open thinking, which can in turn lead to many potential partnerships, collaborations, and ideas for a better tomorrow. And it provides a glimpse of what’s in store for the future.
Budding Web3 founders will further get the scope to attend exciting breakout sessions, keynotes, fireside chats, and Q&A sessions on both days. They can also discuss and promote their work with journalists and content creators from Proof of Talk’s leading media partners: BeInCrypto, Decrypt, The Defiant, Cointelegraph, Bitcoin.com, and more.
Exhibiting Digital Art. Fostering Creativity.
The Louvre Palace is one of the world’s most esteemed destinations for art exhibitions. Proof of Talk thus includes a groundbreaking NFT exposition at this location, titled At first glance – À première vue.
At a time when social media frenzy, instant gratification, and information overdose spoil art appreciation at an alarming rate, Proof of Talk will spark genuine interest and acknowledgment for the emerging trends in digital art.
Curated by Luisa Ausenda, Founder of Studio Leggero, the exhibition will showcase twelve distinctive global artists: Addie Wagenknecht, Andrea Bonaceto, Andrés Reisinger, Auriea Harvey, Benoit Challand, Hermine Bourdin, Rafaël Rozendaal, Sarah Meyohas, Skygolpe, Sofia Crespo, Trevor Jones & Wonderkatzi.
As a thought-provoking experience, ‘At first glance – À première vue’ shall demand active engagement from the audience, inspiring them to see beyond what’s visible at first glance. Each of the works featured offer a radical take on various themes, including gender, equality, and speculation.
By showcasing highly conceptual works, some of which make remarkable use of latest technologies, the exhibition will initiate dialogue and reflection among artists and art enthusiasts. This fosters creativity and transforms the viewers, opening up new avenues for the holistic growth of Web3.
