„This is a historic moment. Blockchain technology will have incredibly profound effects on the company, the government, and society. It is indisputable that in a few years we will see new business models, similar to what we experienced with the Internet a few years ago,“ says Victoria Gago, Co-founder of EBC.
„We remain faithful to our goal of accelerating, promoting and connecting the blockchain ecosystem in Europe. This online edition is an opportunity to multiply our impact. Never before has so much quality content been accessible from home,“ says Daniel Salmerón, Co-founder of EBC. „We expect to exceed by far the number of participants in the face-to-face editions and this translates into multiplying the networking opportunities for our attendees“.
This year’s novelty is the workshops that will be given during the congress, specialized 45-minute classes. They will seek to deepen in areas such as Digital Identity in Bitcoin Compass or how to design a decentralized ecosystem of mobility. They will be given by Daimler, Maersk and the European Commission, among others.
