Blockchain Tech Leaders to Attend BII Summit in Dubai

As Blockchain technology gains momentum across the globe, over 1200 Fintech professionals and Blockchain enthusiasts from 22 countries are set to attend BII Summit, the region’s largest event of its kind, scheduled to take place at the Ritz-Carlton Dubai on 19 March, 2018.

The event will focus on case study based presentations in ongoing and upcoming innovative Blockchain projects and provide potential partnership opportunities for summit participants.

The diverse speaker line-up represents renowned Initial Coin Offering (ICO) start-ups, major tech companies, government authorities and institutional investment firms. Simon Cocking, Chief Editor of Irish Tech News, Sally Eaves, CEO and Thought Leader in Emergent Tech, Nikita Anufriev, Founder and CEO at DateCoin, Dana Farbo, COO and Investor at Augmate and Stefan Hickmott, Founder and CEO at Evareium are all part of the powerhouse list of speakers.

As major sponsors gear up to attend the BII Summit, Daniel Gouldman, Co-founder of Ternio, a Blockchain for digital advertising and a speaker at BII Summit said, “Such events are an opportunity to connect with other Blockchain evangelists and exchange ideas to build successful Blockchain companies.” Gouldman describes Ternio as “the only scalable Blockchain solution for the programmatic digital advertising industry that will benefit brands, agencies and publishers.

Haji Zamzuri Abdul Majid, CEO of Ultroneum and another BII Summit speaker added, “The current setback in Blockchain technology is that it is segregated from traditional finance and our Ultroneum project aims to bridge the cryptos with conventional finance into a coherent and complementary system to enable use of both without any apparent deviation in the way users complete their transactions.”

Eran Eyal, CEO and Founder of Shopin, the world’s first decentralized shopper profile built on the blockchain described his project’s unique selling proposition as:

“Shopin empowers retailers to have a direct connection with customers by offering personalized product recommendations, secure transactions, and valuable rewards to shoppers who share their preferences and purchase history data.” He further added, “Blockchain is creating an unprecedented economy of data and security that is changing how businesses are run.

Described by the New York Times as “the early leader, they are actually making the entire ecosystem,” Blockchain is a digitized, decentralized, public ledger of all cryptocurrency transactions.

On the domestic front, the Dubai Blockchain Strategy was launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan, and was a result of a collaboration between the Smart Dubai Office and the Dubai Future Foundation to continually explore and evaluate the latest technology innovations that demonstrate an opportunity to deliver more seamless, safe, efficient, and impactful city experiences. The Dubai Government has now implemented the Dubai Blockchain Strategy 2020, an initiative which is deemed to usher in economic opportunity for all sectors in the city.
