India Blockchain Week is part of a week-long series of web3-focused events taking place from December 4-10, 2023.
Hashed Emergent, a prominent web3 venture fund, is set to host India’s first-ever world-class, multi-chain web3 conference called India Blockchain Week (IBW). The conference, scheduled for December 6-7 in Bangalore, aims to bring together industry leaders and experts to explore the diverse landscape of web3 technology and its impact on India’s burgeoning startup scene.
IBW is part of a week-long series of web3-focused events taking place from December 4-10, 2023. The conference will kick off with a “warm-up” session featuring hackathons, side events, and parties on December 4-5. The main IBW conference will be held on December 6-7, followed by the highly anticipated ETHIndia hackathon.
Last year, the ETHIndia hackathon attracted over 2,000 attendees and saw more than 450 project submissions, making it one of the largest Ethereum hackathons to date. The Sheraton Grand Hotel in Whitefield, a prominent IT and commercial hub in Bangalore, will serve as the main venue for the IBW conference.
IBW will feature a range of engaging sessions, including speaker presentations, panel discussions, fireside chats, and moderated debates. The conference aims to cover a broad spectrum of topics within the blockchain industry, including technical advancements, investment opportunities, adoption and use cases, policy and regulations, and the unique web3 landscape in India. The agenda is designed to foster inclusivity and invite experts from various backgrounds to contribute their insights.
As part of the global media team, MarketAcross, a leading web3 PR and marketing agency, will play a pivotal role in highlighting the event. MarketAcross has worked with prominent companies in the region, such as Polygon and Hashed Emergent, and has previously served as the official media partner for events like Korea Blockchain Week, WebX, Paris Blockchain Week, and IVS Kyoto.
India has emerged as a significant player in the web3 space, experiencing a 100-fold increase in on-chain value flows since 2019, according to Chainalysis’ Geography of Crypto Adoption report.
Despite regulatory challenges, India boasts the largest number of users across both centralized and decentralized web3 finance platforms. The Indian government, historically sceptical of cryptocurrencies, is now aiming to establish globally harmonized regulations through participation in the G20 Summit.
While the list of confirmed speakers has yet to be released, IBW promises to feature prominent global and local leaders from the blockchain industry. Organized by Hashed Emergent, a subsidiary of Hashed, a renowned web3 venture fund from South Korea, IBW builds on the success of the Korea Blockchain Week series of events co-hosted by Factblock.
“We are thrilled to bring India its first world-class, multi-chain web3 conference, giving the country the attention it rightfully deserves,” stated Tak Lee, Managing Partner of Hashed Emergent. “Bangalore is a powerhouse of startups, and Indian web3 startups have made significant contributions to the industry, with successful protocols and products. We believe that IBW will become a dynamic and diverse gathering place for the crypto industry.”
With the launch of India Blockchain Week, India’s web3 ecosystem is poised to thrive further, leveraging the conference’s platform to showcase innovation, foster collaboration, and shape the future of the blockchain industry in the country.
