The event will bring together thought leaders, CEOs, founders, investors and regulatory authorities to pave a path for a more trustworthy and innovative future in the Web3 space.
“The Web3 ecosystem is at a turning point, and given the context, the main question is really where do we go from here. We wanted to create a point of reflection for an industry in transformation by bringing together different types of decision makers in a human-sized set up. We will build with them an industry paper that will serve as a code of conduct for the future of Web3. Having all these industry leaders joining us sends a strong message that Web3 is ready to move to the next phase, to have the real talk and learn from the past to transform our industry.”, explains Zohair Dehnadi, partner at X Ventures.

What did we learn from decentralization? How can traditional regulations adapt to decentralized finance? Is MiCA the best use case? Will mass adoption kill the innovative spirit of Web3? Where does IA fit in?
The second day shifts its focus towards the future by bringing together the most promising and pre-selected Web3 startups, as well as renowned investors such as Softbank, The Spartan Group, Fabric Ventures, Shima Capital, and Animoca Brands, to foster creativity and provide founders and investors with opportunities for collaboration and networking.
