Why UNLOCK 2019

Blockchain is here to stay and is growing. Blockchain is set to have a market size of 2.5 trillion by 2021 from its current 548.2 billion in 2018. Over the last five years venture capitalists have invested more than $3 billion in Blockchain projects.  Over 90% of the banking industry is studying Blockchain initiatives, and governments around the world are setting up regulatory and legislative policies to tackle the issues arising from this new force-field.

According to market research Blockchain use cases are developing across 20 industry verticals most notably in supply chain, identity, security, financial services-commerce, and infrastructure.

For these reasons and more, we are holding the second edition of UNLOCK in Dubai UAE on January 15th-16th 2019 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel DIFC.
