Condensed Paris NFT Day and Paris Blockchain Week Summit!

On the occasion of the Paris Blockchain Week Summit, the Palais Brongniart gathered the most innovative projects in the crypto environment. The future of NFTs, Bitcoins (BTC) place in the global economy and regulations were among the topics on everyone’s lips. New this year, Paris NFT Day preceded these two days of blockchain conferences focusing on NFTs. Discover in this article an overview of these three days under the sign of blockchains.

Paris NFT Day and its surprises

Chain of Events, organizer of the show, wanted to honor NFT technologies by dedicating a day entirely dedicated to these technologies: Paris NFT Day. On April 12, entrepreneurs, investors, and individuals from across the blockchain sphere invaded the Palais Brongniart to discuss this revolution.

You are not unaware that NFTs are the technological revelation of the last two years. Although older, this innovation was driven on stage, leading to record sales. One can, for example, quote the work NFT “ Weekdays: The first 5000 days »By the artist Beeple sold for the modest sum of $ 69 million.

With this widespread exposure, many trendy collections have emerged. Among the most fashionable we can mention the crazy monkeys Bored Ape Yacht Club, present at Paris NFT Day. Holders of these cult NFTs were able to gather around a booth dedicated to this collection; the possibility that they can discuss the development of this trend and the next projects that follow.

This day was also an occasion for more young projects to raise awareness and get user feedback. For example, the Solid NFT project, which was present over the three days, was a great success. The company, which specializes in printing NFTs on physical media, was a partner in the show. We observed on several occasions individuals go to their booth,wallet in hand to print their precious digital assets. Their technology makes it possible to bring digital works to life and bring NFTs a little closer to their opponents every day.

An innovative sector

In addition, we were able to discover the company Nifty, which introduces its walletdedicated to NFTs. The purpose of the product is, like a Ledger key, to be able to sign transactions during NFT exchanges. But their device has a bigger screen so the user can see their NFT and scroll through their gallery. Currently in the marketing phase, the Nifty case will be offered to the public for a sum of $ 199.

Finally, Paris NFT Day also saw a host of conferences led by stakeholders involved in the crypto and NFT ecosystem. For example, intervention of Patrick Mouratoglou at the conference “Financing the Next Serena Williams”. The tennis player was able to captivate the audience with his innovative proposal: The Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS). Through his project, Patrick Mouratoglou wants to modernize tennis to make it a more enjoyable version to watch. Of course, NFTs will serve as a technological overlay to engage viewers and gain a foothold in Web3.

Most of the discussions about the NFT Day in Paris highlighted the interest in these technologies. On the one hand, NFTs give a notion of decentralized digital ownership. On the other hand, these technologies suffer from their image among the general public, and specific cases of application need to be developed. However, a large majority of environmental actors agree that the development of these tools could not be done without all the abuses we have been through.

Paris Blockchain Week Summit and Blockchain in all its forms

After the start of the festivities started during the Paris NFT Day, Paris Blockchain Week Summit put blockchain in the spotlight on April 13 and 14. Visitors who took the tour could browse the booths on dozens of crypto projects and interact with those who bring this ecosystem to life. Among the stands to be seen is Binance, whose wheel of gifts knew how to drag the crowds.

Impossible to talk about Binance without saying a few words about CZ, its CEO. Present at the exhibition, CZ opened these two days at the Palais Brongniart at a conference on the main stage with full house. In his speech, the CEO of the world’s largest stock exchange presented the tremendous growth that his company has experienced since its inception. He even took the opportunity to reveal the secret behind the platform’s success: “Binance is 2% strategy, 98% execution!It was also during this conference that CZ announced the opening of a € 100 million incubator on the Station F startup campus in Paris. This partnership aims to accelerate the development of blockchain projects in France and more widely in Europe. .

As for Paris NFT Day, dozens of speakers followed each other on several stages to express their opinions on the future of this ecosystem. It would take dozens of pages to summarize the contents of the conferences held during the Paris Blockchain Week Summit. However, we can extract some of the most compelling points.

The important points addressed by the panelists

First, all the speakers spoke for theirs connection to this ecosystem and how he was pleasant to develop with people who are eager to build the world of the future. It remains crucial that the first players in this environment thrive there so that the values ​​of blockchain take precedence over profit. Clearly, everyone is there to make money, as one speaker had fun reminding us. However, Web3’s success must remain the main driving force for this machinery and the benefits a consequence!

So the word ” regulation was ubiquitous in most presentations. This ecosystem has certainly evolved at full speed with amazing successes like Binance. But the laws established by the states must be respected and it will be important to establish a clear legal framework for the taxation of cryptocurrencies. It is on this condition that this environment will be able to find its place in the world economy.

Finally there is never had so many people in this universe! The adoption of cryptocurrencies is comparable to the adoption of the Internet in the 2000s. Knowing where the ubiquitous Internet is in our lives today, it is not a delusion to dream of a global adoption in the years to come. Either way, a total collapse of this ecosystem seems a little more unlikely every day!

What about the 2023 edition?

If you liked the program for the Paris Blockchain Week Summit 2022, you are not at the end of your surprises. In fact, the organizer of the show, Chain of Events, has just announced that the 2023 editionby the way, another emblematic place takes place in Paris: Le Carrousel du Louvre! To better organize yourself and be able to get there, you should already note the dates of these three days placed under the sign of the blockchain:April 25, 26 and 27, 2023.
