The first ever organized by BlockShow, the Asia Blockchain Week brings together a diverse array of investors, entrepreneurs, developers, pundits, and experts together. A five-day networking opportunity but also a great place to listen to insights and discover where Blockchain is headed and how it is reshaping our world.
A conference that defines Blockchain
Blockchain is not just a passing fad, it is a technology whose time has come. BlockShow has been highlighting the importance of this since 2017. In the following year, BlockShow capitalized on their work and helped welcome millions into the Blockchain fold. Now the writing is clear on the wall, it is time to help Blockchain mature. This can only happen when people come together and share their own unique experiences and values. As VentureBeat calls BlockShow, “The flagship event, which has grown quickly to become the largest Blockchain technology roadshow.” and Forbes describes BlockShow as “Major Blockchain Conference.” The reputation of BlockShow is its main draw.
