Blockchain: (much) more than Crypto


PwC Luxembourg is organising the blockchain-applied series that will bring together inspirational keynotes, panel discussions, blockchain exhibitions, and a host of networking opportunities. Through this series, we intend to discuss the latest developments and insights on the ever-evolving blockchain technology and its applications.

During the session, we will:

  1. look beyond the traditional crypto application of the technology
  2. and explore other use cases with renowned international players, local flagship companies and experts on blockchain.

The event will be kicked off by a keynote speech from Steve Davies, PwC Global Blockchain Leader who leads PwC’s blockchain efforts around the world.

At the very end and after the discussions, the participants will have the unique opportunity to join a blockchain-fair and discuss their business and opportunities.
