One month before the first edition of the Polynesian Islands Crypto Summit (PICS)

PICS: 3-day summit to make Polynesia the beating heart of the continent Web3 and blockchain

Hundreds of professionalsactors, journalists from the sector, almost one thirty partners and sponsors industry leaders, some with a weight of tens of billions of dollars (Avalanche, FTX, Elrond Network …), more than 14,000 followers on social networks in a few weeks …

The first edition of The Cryptotope Summit in the Polynesian Islands will be held on June 5, 6 and 7 at the InterContinental Hotel in Faa’a and is already set to be unique.

Born of a modest ambition in mid-2021, PICS has over the months become one of the most anticipated crypto events of 2022, and now competes in terms of expectations and appeal with emblematic industry summits and conferences such as. Paris PBWSthat Miami BTC Conference or even The Austin Consensus Summit in 2022 (which incidentally takes place a few days after PICS).

NFT, metaverse, Web3, cryptocurrenciesIkke not a day goes by without these new topics invading the news and social networks.

Still largely unknown to the general public and often associated with many ideas received, these new concepts – sometimes complex or even counterintuitive – nevertheless outline the digital world that we will develop in the coming years.

Paradoxically, despite its economic weight and its explosive growth, this new sector is still an unknown colossus. Still, the next digital giants are already evolving there, big enough to compete with the famous ones GAFA (Google-Amazon-Facebook-Apple).

The implications of this growth, estimated in trillions of dollars for the coming decade, are endless and will have consequences not only for our daily lives, our financial systems, but also for concepts as fundamental as protection of personal data, privacy, the very concept of ownershipgovernance, even international geopolitical balances.

The growth and employment potential of this sector is unprecedented and this rising wave, French Polynesia, is able to support it.

This is the whole point of the PICS summit.

Unique growth opportunities for Polynesia

The PICS summit has 4 main objectives:

  1. Expose, to the Polynesian public, a “state of the art” of the blockchain ecosystem and the economy, highlighting concrete cases from which students, entrepreneurs, artists or merchants can draw inspiration to anticipate and support these inevitable technological developments.
  2. Current job opportunities of a sector in perpetual search for talents and skills, and whose operating codes make it possible to work while staying in Fenua.
  3. Displays Polynesiaits art, its culture and its sweetness in life, its environment, its institutional stability and its attractive tax system to attract professionals in the sector (digital nomads), even companies seduced by the special conditions of the territory (“Follow the Sun” strategy) .
  4. Give to the community Polynesian technology a unifying event with an educational vocation. PICS aims to raise awareness and educate the general public to the new services offered by Web3 and to protect them from fraud and malicious initiatives (Ponzi pyramids, distribution of unregulated financial products, “fraud” …).

Finally, PICS aims to enable Polynesia to integrate into the national dynamics on the subject. As such, the summit is accompanied by French Federation of Blockchain Professionals (FFPB) co-founded by MP Jean-Michel Mis.

PICS, a free, inclusive event, accessible to as many people as possible.

Traditionally, admission to specialized conferences and summits costs from hundreds to thousands of euros (1 day at Surfin’Bitcoin in Biarritz is available from € 200, a Platinum Pass at PBWS, € 3,500).

Contrary to popular belief, however, the PICS organizers wanted these 3-day conferences to be available (at the ticket office and prior reservation) to remove any barrier to entry for the most modest.

In addition, the conferences and panels have been calibrated both to follow one structured learning process (Understand, learn, work) and be accessible to someone without preconditions.

At the end of the summit, the participant will have enjoyed a complete panorama of the industry, will have been presented with concrete use cases and will know how he will be able to take advantage of Web3, the potentials of the blockchain and the crypto economy.

More importantly, it will be informed and able to detect the most common scams and traps.
