The UNLOCK Blockchain forum was a great success with the attendance of 350 participants from around the region and internationally. UNLOCK presented over 58 high caliber blockchain speakers from the region as well as internationally and included government representatives from KSA, Oman, UAE and Europe.
More than 25 blockchain startups from the MENA region and Europe as well as USA were present at UNLOCK either as exhibitors or speakers.
Du telecom presented UNLOCK this year and made two major announcements around the blockchain technology. The first was the du blockchain as a service infrastructure platform and secondly was its partnership with Dhonor a healthcare blockchain startup.
UNLOCK Founder and CEO also used the UNLOCK platform to announce the development of a $50 million fund in 2020 to further develop the blockchain ecosystem as regional private and family offices are keen to invest in the technology and digital assets but under proper terms and well-structured strategy.
UNLOCK’s success is because of the strong partnerships we have built with sponsors such as du, Darkmatter, Deloitte, Avanza Innovations, Centurion and others. As well as the high caliber or speakers and media partners, but most importantly the growing community of Blockchain enthusiasts, implementers, investors, and solution providers that we have and will continue to grow.
