Adam Geri, Head of the DCS Organizing Committee, said in a statement, “Interest in the blockchain space has been growing rapidly for startups, entrepreneurs, and legacy organizations. However, for governments and large multinationals, the situation is more challenging, hence the importance of DCS. Such events are the ideal platforms to launch discussions on ways to stir these organizations into action by identifying specific opportunities and the technical, organizational, cultural, and talent changes necessary to realize new benefits.”
“Abu Dhabi is on the forefront of international cities that realize the future of blockchain and digital currencies. With DCS, we are taking the discussions to a more global level with a live and on-demand format targeting 100 million online followers and 50 million+ online visitors to the event”, he added.
The core focus of this event ranges from enterprise and government adoption of blockchain to its diversity and social impact in a fast-changing world. The discussions will also focus on how Abu Dhabi can build a multi-billion-dollar blockchain economy or what is poised to become the new digital oil of the Middle East.
