The ninth World Blockchain Congress took place on February 21 and 22 in Dubai

The ninth edition of the world famous flagship World Blockchain Congress by Agora Group, co-hosted by TDeFi, took place on February 21-22 this year at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Dubai.

The theme of this edition was “Decentralized digital reality: a gateway to the metaverse, GameFi and DeFi”. There was a list of speakers including the keynote address by Her Excellency Dr. Maryam Buti Al Suwaidi, CEO of the UAE Securities and Commodities Authority.

The conference agenda focused on building the metaverse and how Dubai can settle into this new frontier. The term MetaDubai was coined at the event where, in a panel discussion, some of Dubai’s most influential blockchain leaders discussed the concept.

The Global Blockchain Congress brought together more than 60 speakers, 200 investors, 30 sponsors, 20 media partners and 400 delegates. More than 350 individual meetings were organized between investors and projects during the two-day event.

Agora and X Ventures announced the launch of the X Competition, an initiative to find, support and celebrate changemakers and disruptive industry nomads who dare to challenge the status quo and endure bumpy roads and failures in the pursuit of their dreams. Legion Network won the first edition of the competition and the other two first places went to Animal Concerts and Krowdz.

Blockchain Valley Virtual was the title and gala dinner sponsor, with Prasaga as strategic partner and cocktail sponsor. Legion Network and Media Coin also served as strategic partners and coffee break sponsors.

The event was an exclusive, closed-door convention attended by invitation only. Agora has hosted over 200 investors and 30 sponsors in metaverse, gaming, decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible token projects aimed at raising funds.

The first eight editions of the Global Blockchain Congress have been a huge success, with over 1,000 investors and 200 blockchain startups hosted and millions raised.

Agora Group is delighted to announce the launch of the Saudi Blockchain Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from June 6-7, 2022. Blockchain will meet Saudi Arabia – a long-awaited event. It will be a platform for government officials, visionaries, leaders, investors, entrepreneurs and global players to explore what a marriage between blockchain and the largest economy in the Middle East region and North Africa could accomplish.

Jay Moore, Co-Founder and Director of Collaboration at Prasaga, said, “Our experience with Agora has been outstanding. Every promise has been exceeded and every opportunity to engage with the right funds has been exploited. But the real key was that everything was so well organized. Having participated in so many of these events, I have never had such a high success rate. Of the 22 funds we spoke to, we had 20 with a good fit. The dinner was a success and our time in the Cleopatra Suite will create lasting relationships.
