Tickets are now on sale to Web3’s most exclusive and prestigious summit of 2023, www.proofoftalk.io, on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th June at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, France. Over 75 industry leaders are scheduled to give talks at the ground-breaking two-day event, with 90% of the audience consisting of C-suite executives – the highest percentage of senior leadership attendance at any Web3 event in Europe. The curated, intimate setting is the perfect opportunity for thought leaders and the brightest minds in the industry to connect with like-minded individuals and forge valuable relationships. Most CEOs and founders of the top 50 blockchain companies have already confirmed their attendance, with featured speakers including:
Charles Hoskinson, Co-Founder of Cardano
Pascal Gauthier, CEO of Ledger
Stani Kulechov, Founder and CEO of Aave
Staci Warden, CEO of Algorand Foundation
Marieke Flament, CEO of NEAR Foundation
Jemima Kelly, columnist at the Financial Times, is also scheduled to moderate a panel at the event.
The first day of the event – titled “Bringing Trust back into Web3” – will feature various forums and panels to help shape the future of the Web3 industry with integrity and trust. Industry changemakers are invited to step forward and openly discuss the industry’s most pressing issues in a safe forum in order to restore trust in the decentralised revolution.
Conversely, the second day looks ahead to the future – bringing together the most promising and pre-selected Web3 start-ups and esteemed investors, such as Softbank, The Spartan Group, Fabric Ventures, Shima Capital and Animoca Brands, to ignite creativity and provide opportunities for founders and investors alike to collaborate and connect.
Initially scheduled as an invite-only event, word-of-mouth caused a huge demand from the Web3 industry and event organisers, Germany-based investment fund X Ventures, opted to release limited tickets to the public.
Across both days, attendees will have access to insightful panels, keynotes, fireside chats, and open Q&A sessions, in addition to the freedom to mingle with major media representatives.
Zohair Dehnadi, Partner at event organisers www.xventures.de, commented:
“We are incredibly proud to host an event which promises to bring together the brightest minds and top CEOs from the world’s most influential blockchain companies. We are inviting C-level executives, founders, influencers, legal experts and regulatory authorities to this unparalleled event.
We acknowledge that the Web3 industry needs a soft reset after experiencing challenges with scams and rug pulls, unprofessionalism and short-sighted greed. We are determined to initiate critical conversations around re-establishing trust because we firmly believe the decentralisation movement offers a chance to change the world for the better.
Above all else, we want to reignite the drive and passion that initially drew us, the event organisers, to the world of decentralised technology. Proof of Talk offers leaders a vital platform to share their ideas, best practices and insights on how to shape the future of the Web3 industry and pave the path for trust. We hope more industry leaders will join us for two days of thought-provoking discussions, cutting edge insights and unparalleled networking opportunities."
