World Blockchain Summit (#WBSDubai) connects global blockchain gurus and technology players in this space including emerging startups – with regional businesses, government authorities, IT leaders, tech entrepreneurs, investors and blockchain developers.
The summit features enterprise use-cases, government use-cases, inspirational keynotes, panel discussions, tech-talks, blockchain exhibition, startup pitch competitions, and a host of networking opportunities.
Dubai has embraced blockchain technology, and has even put forward plans to incorporate the technology into governmental operations.
By 2020, all visa applications, bill payments and licence renewals will be transacted digitally through an electronic ledger.
This further cemented the nation’s resolve to establish Dubai as the happiest, safest and most innovative city on Earth.
