Industry experts from across the world and across industries – both the elite and the fringe – coming together for the annual World Economic Forum (WEF).
Scheduled for January 21st through 24th, the forum’s celebrating its 50th rendition this year, and it’ll see a number of major world figures, both established and newcomers, such as the executive director of UNAIDS Winnie Byanyima, president of the European Central Bank (ECB) Christine Lagarde, president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, climate activist Greta Thunberg, International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva, U.S. President Donald Trump, and many more of the people who run the world. Each year has a different theme, and for 2020, it’s sustainable development or “Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World”.
That said, blockchain and crypto have been infiltrating the event at a rapid pace, though it’s questionable if the event considers it mainstream enough to include more of the industry specialists in the “main stage” discussions. Let’s take a look at what crypto and blockchain fans can look forward to from Davos this year.
Blockchain Central Davos
For everything blockchain-related, this is your place. The Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC) is again organizing the four-day Blockchain Central Davos event. This is a side event, so to say, and one that has been growing for several years now. With the rise of the industry itself, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the elites to ignore events such as this one.
