The 1st International Symposium on Blockchain Advancements (ISBA) 2022 in Singapore Takes on the Cosmic Ray of Blockchain Future
In just a few years, blockchain technology has revolutionized the Internet and cryptocurrency market. The impact of blockchain on business, finance, and wealth creation cannot be emphasized enough. It has heralded the digital revolution with lots of hopes and promises for new technologies like DeFi, Web3, NFTs, and many more.
As such, it’s imperative to have a body to guide the evolution of blockchain technology. And that’s why ParallelChain Lab is organizing the 1st International Symposium on Blockchain Advancements (ISBA). The event will debut in Singapore, from 1st to 2nd December 2022.
The objective of the ISBA is to guide the first step in migrating to the digital economy by provoking meaningful questions and discussions that will enable all of us, builders and consumers, alike, to cut through the blockchain hype and grasp a realistic view of the emerging trends and needs, and to provide a technical blueprint for innovative solutions.
The ISBA gathers significant voices of ecosystem builders and users, who represent different stakeholders of the innovation chain, yet are united by the aspiration to actualize the blockchain-powered digital transformation.
As the first of the series, the theme of ISBA 2022: ‘A New Interoperability Dimension – Coupling DeFi and CeFi’ aims right at the core of the digital infrastructure, the blockchain platforms. It will hear from distinguished technologists, industry leaders, and venture capitalists on the networked enterprise and decentralized economies, from deep-tech and business perspectives.
