The Paris Blockchain Week Summit (PBWS), the first international conference held in France dedicated to professionals in the blockchain and the crypto-assets space, has announced the primary speaker lineup for its upcoming event on March 31 - April 1, 2020.
Following the first edition last spring that attracted more than 1,700 attendees from 57 different nationalities, more than 100 media figures and 130+ speakers, PBWS 2020 will take place at Station F, a start-up campus and incubator.
PBWS will once again feature varied players in the emerging technology space, with this year’s event expected to attract 2,500 French and international industry professionals. Organized by Woorton, Chain Accelerator and Datalents, the event will be opened and supported by Bruno Le Maire, French Minister for Economy and Finance.
“Recently, the PACTE Law came into effect in France, which represents an immense opportunity for innovative companies operating in the sector. PACTE outlines an action plan for business growth and transformation, providing a regulatory framework for the crypto economy that brings much-needed legal certainty. Our goal with PBWS 2020 is to bring a world-class event to France and foster the growth of the ecosystem as a whole. We look forward to welcoming our international speakers, partners and attendees to take part – and stay tuned for more details on what to expect in March,” Michael Amar, Co-Host of Paris Blockchain Week Summit, commented.
PBWS will showcase the French regulatory framework and ecosystem while fostering the ongoing development of the blockchain space. Speakers from prominent blockchain and crypto-asset organizations will take the main stage to present the latest advances in the industry and their sentiment in four tracks: Tech Builders, Open Finance, Enterprise Blockchain, and Public Policy. Some key topics to be addressed on stage include stablecoins, crypto lending platforms, DAOs, governance, developer communities, collectibles, and decentralized mobility.
More than 100 international speakers from varied sectors will be present at the event, including Bruno Le Maire, Minister for the Economy and Finance; Cédric O, Secretary of State for Digital Affairs; Dr. Jutta Steiner, Founder & CEO of Parity Technologies; Ryan Selkis, Co-Founder and CEO of Messari; Bertrand Perez, President of Libra Association; Meltem Demirors, Chief Strategy Officer at CoinShares; Paul Brodsky, Partner at Pantera Capital; Kathleen Breitman, Co-Founder of Coase; David Rutter, Founder, and CEO of R3 and Arthur Breitman, Co-Founder of Tezos.
“PBWS is doing an amazing job at galvanizing our industry in France,” Wei Zhou, CFO of Binance and speaker at PBWS 2019, concluded.
