Dubai’s Future Blockchain Summit, hosted by the Smart Dubai Office in partnership with the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC), opened its doors to the public on Tuesday.

Taking place April 2-3 at DWTC, the second edition of Future Blockchain Summit is hosting the region’s largest gathering of blockchain experts.

Trixie LohMirmand, senior vice president, events management, Dubai World Trade Center, said: “Future Blockchain Summit once again offers an incredible opportunity to interact with international blockchain pioneers and innovative industry luminaries. Our du-powered City of the Future is a world-first innovation designed to offer the most genuine, immersive experience of how a city and society would work on the blockchain — a reality only a year away now as Dubai races toward its 2020 target of becoming the first city fully powered by blockchain.”
