The week also dominated global blockchain developments and the Netherlands ecosystem with an inspiring program on various topics.
Marco van den Heuvel of Merit Cirle, Kerry Murphy of The Fabricant, Luc Hijdra of Unityswap, Kirsten Coppoolse of The New Fork and Rudolf van Ee of Blockchain Netherlands showed us the latest blockchain/crypto startups from Holland. We have considered several important trends within the blockchain and explained why the solution is important when using decentralized technology. In the ‘To the moon & back’ session, CoinMarketCap’s Molly Jane Zuckerman, DPS’s Rainer Bredenward and ING’s Tynes Brussens shared what’s happening in crypto, especially what’s coming next, and where the biggest obstacles for 2022 lie.
Mason Nystrom of Messari, Kaliya Young’s Identity Woman and Jorge Serna of Europe Securitize show the latest developments in what we can expect in 2022 around tokens, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), Web 3.0 and self-identity (SSI). Change makers Ingo Rübe of KILT Protocol of Berlin and Marcel Harmann of THOR in Switzerland spoke about the events in other blockchain/crypto ecosystems across Europe. The KILT protocol has been decentralized for a few weeks and Ingo explained why this is important. Susan Somerville of Chronicled/Meledger, Violeta Shishkina of Women in Blockchain and Sana Bedi of UNICEF spoke about upcoming global change projects. It is exciting to see how blockchain technology supports this.
In the latest session of Dutch Blockchain Week ‘Long Road Ahead’, three world opinion leaders from China, the United States and Germany, Anne Connelly of Singularity, Vatin Krektoim of Cointelegraph and Agata Ferreira of the European BC Observatory, closed the week with their opinions. About what the future has to offer. They noted that decentralized technology has only just begun. So there is still a long way to go in regulations, global cooperation and technical challenges.
All sessions can be watched separately via our YouTube channel and a later movie will follow soon on our Dutch Blockchain Week website.
