World Blockchain Summit (WBS), the largest global series of blockchain, crypto, and web3 events, is coming back to Dubai on October 17-18 at the Atlantis, the Palm.
Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Juma Ahmed Juma Al Maktoum, a member of the ruling family of Dubai, WBS Dubai is hosting the most influential thought leaders on blockchain, Crypto, NFT, Web 3.0, and the metaverse to explore the market’s effects on commerce, banking, gaming, culture, and community development.
Dubai is known for its welcoming stance on crypto and blockchain technology. This is evident in its ease of regulations for crypto and blockchain technologies making it great for foreign companies looking to set up shop.
This is further backed by the recent approval of the Dubai Virtual Asset Regulation Law providing for a more ‘Crypto-friendly’ structure that fosters investment and growth in blockchain adoption. With over 6000 millionaire residents, the country’s private wealth has risen to over $40 billion making it a hotspot for investments too.
“Dubai is the right place for innovation in the blockchain space. We are happy to be working with WBS to achieve the vision set by the government of Dubai on its Blockchain and Metaverse Strategy.” Commented Furqan Rassul, CEO of Elite Partner Investment.
WBS will bring enlightening sessions discussing the blockchain and crypto space in response to some of today’s most pressing questions in the current industry. It will also feature panel discussions, industry highlights, use case studies, fireside chats, and more.
