The wait is over! The Middle East and North Africa region’s first and largest blockchain conference and exhibition, the Future Blockchain Summit, is launching its 5th edition at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) tomorrow, from October 10th-13th October 2022 (Monday to Thursday).
In a bid to realize the vast economic potential that Blockchain holds for the UAE and beyond, the Future Blockchain Summit will unite diverse and disruptive innovators who will address all things blockchain – including regulations, cryptocurrencies and the Metaverse.
The Future Blockchain Summit is set to bring together the region’s largest gathering of thought leaders, Blockchain architects, game-changing startups and powerful investors including more than 100 speakers and 600 investors who will converge for four days of networking and education centered around disruptive technologies of the future.
The fifth edition of the Future Blockchain Summit will hear from Blockchain visionaries from organizations including ADGM, Emirates Post, BCG, Binance, Mastercard and EmiratesNBD, FTX, OKX and Elliptic, among many others.
The summit will also host engaging panel discussions on key topics such as ‘Mitigating Risks of Virtual Assets (VAs) and Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs)’, ‘Regulations in the Metaverse’, and ‘The State of Bitcoin Mining and the Energy Problem’.
“The UAE can be a model for other nations in establishing a crypto hub. This is still a nascent space, and the realization of this ambition will require a major focus on regulation, built on a deep understanding of the underlying blockchain technology. Given the work we are doing with governments across the globe, we will focus on educating all stakeholders — from government entities and private sector organiszations to everyday consumers — on the fundamentals of blockchain technology over the four days of the Future Blockchain Summit,” said Bas Lemmens, General Manager International, Chainalysis.
“The Future Blockchain Summit has been an extremely valuable source of industry-leading expertise and knowledge for the last four years. We are excited that the event is coming back to Dubai for a fifth edition,” said Alexander Chehade, General Manager for Dubai, Binance. “As the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem, we are big supporters of open dialogue to spread awareness and education regarding Blockchain; this is a crucial step to build trust and security in our industry and drive long-term growth.

Gaurav Dubey, CEO, TDeFi, said, “TDeFi is excited to have a major presence in one of the region’s most important gatherings of the technology industry. This year, TDeFi will participate at the Future Blockchain Summit with an exhibition of its portfolio highlighting its latest projects.”
