Barcelona to host Europe’s largest blockchain event from 24-26 October

Barcelona will host Europe’s leading blockchain conference from 24 October. Introduced in 2018, the European Blockchain Convention connects industry experts, technology leaders and startups. Discussions will explore the massive potential of cryptocurrencies and blockchain.

Meanwhile, the Catalan capital will host the largest blockchain event in Europe since the convention began, with approximately 5,000 delegates.

The buzz of cryptocurrencies in Barcelona

The blockchain event will see Barcelona dominate crypto events during the last weekend of October. In addition to industry professionals flocking to the EBC9 event, the gathering coincides with the much-watched El Clasico tournament between Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The European Blockchain Convention will include C-level executives from Anomoca Brands, Fabric Ventures, Fidelity and Nansen. Speakers from traditional firms such as Volkswagen and Banco will also attend. In addition, representatives from Galaxy Digital and Binance Labs will be in the house.

Organising the massive blockchain evento

Organisers have selected a larger venue, Fira Barcelona, following a substantial increase in participant interest after the previous edition. The new location offers enough space for exhibitors, more engagements and a wide variety of content, according to European Blockchain Convention co-founder Victoria Gago.

Co-founder Daniel Salmeron expressed his enthusiasm for connecting web3, digital assets and TradFi, stating that the participation of multiple financial institutions indicates their optimism and dedication to the future of finance.

Agendas in focus

The ninth edition of the ECB will address several agendas, including the institutionalisation of cryptocurrency, AI, tokenisation, DeFi, privacy, CBDC and sustainability.

In addition to workshop panels and discussions, the programme incorporates a 3,000 square metre area for exhibitors and sponsors. In addition, speakers will conduct AMA sessions. Other events include ECB start-up awards, art galleries and investor meetings.

In addition, the list of side events will feature more than 200 hackers, 20 teams and more than 30 mentors participating in a 2-day hackathon. More details, including ticketing, can be found on the official website:
