Hybrid is the new meet. 1,500 attendees and 120 speakers from all over the world, including thought leaders such as Ethereum's Co-Founder Joseph Lubin or CEO of Microstrategy Michael Saylor come together at Europe’s leading blockchain event.
Hamburg, Germany, 22nd September 2021: BLOCKCHANCE Europe 2021, the leading conference in the blockchain and crypto sphere in Europe got the green light to take place in person under the newly established 2G health rules. The 2G-option allows people that are either vaccinated or have recovered to attend large events under less stringent conditions. Attendees will come together on 2-4 December 2021 in Hamburg, without having to adhere to strict distancing.
“These are great news,” says Fabian Friedrich, Founder and CEO of BLOCKCHANCE. “As BLOCKCHANCE is probably the largest event in the blockchain ecosystem coming up this year, being able to meet face-to-face, join lively discussions and maximize the networking potential of our conference is priceless.”
Virtual ticket holders can follow different live streams (via the Whova App) and video-chat with other attendees, speakers, and sponsors. The app offers many features to round off the virtual experience. Much of the blockchain community in Europe and beyond has been waiting to engage widely as growth of blockchain and other emerging technologies is skyrocketing.
“BLOCKCHANCE is a gateway to the entire blockchain world. Although anyone can join virtually from anywhere, we expect two thirds of all attendees to come to Hamburg.”
BLOCKCHANCE regularly attracts some of the most influential thought leaders. Among this year’s speakers are household names such as Michael Saylor, Co-Founder of Microstrategy, Joseph Lubin Co-Founder of Ethereum and Raoul Pal, Co-Founder of Real Vision – the Netflix of Finance.
"Notwithstanding the pandemic we have been able to attract some of the most inspiring people, from sectors such as banking, digital payments, crypto-trading, artificial intelligence, software development and politics.”
