The Korea Blockchain Week (KBW) is preparing for its 2023 edition. The event is one of the most important blockchain and Web3 conferences in Asia, and its organizers expect to attract thousands of attendees from all over the world.
It’s set to take place from 4th-9th September in Seoul, South Korea. The KBW was founded in 2018 by Web3 accelerator Factblock and has since grown to become one of the biggest blockchain events on the calendar. This year’s co-host is Korea-based VC fund Hashed, while PR firm MarketAcross returns as a media partner.
The 2023 edition of KBW will focus on new trends such as artificial intelligence (AI) and zero-knowledge technology. Given that today’s biggest crypto projects are AI-based, this topic is hotly anticipated. Other topics will include the latest developments across decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and game finance (GameFi) ecosystems.
The conference will feature some of the biggest names in the blockchain industry. Although organizers have yet to finalize the list of speakers for 2023, past speakers at KBW have included Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin, Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao, and Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal. Renowned journalists, top venture funds, and other market participants will also attend.
Blockchain regulation is also expected to feature among the topics discussed at KBW 2023. This is an area of growing interest and concern, as regulators around the world continue to grapple with how to handle digital assets and the blockchain-based applications that rely on them.
The KBW aims to bring together blockchain professionals, entrepreneurs, investors, and educators to network, learn from each other, and explore new opportunities in the rapidly evolving blockchain space. Given the success of the 2022 edition, which attracted more than 8,700 attendees, organizers are confident that this year’s conference will be one of the biggest yet.
