Shortened Paris NFT Day and Paris Blockchain Week Summit!

On the occasion of the Paris Blockchain Week Summit, the Palais Brongniart brought together the most innovative projects in the crypto environment. Future of NFTs, place of Bitcoin (BTC) in the global economy and regulation were among the topics on everyone’s lips. New this year, Paris NFT Day preceded these two days of blockchain conferences with a focus on NFTs. Discover in this article a summary of these three days under the sign of the blockchain.

Paris NFT Day and its surprises

Chain of Events, organizer of the show, wanted to honor NFT technologies by dedicating a day to these technologies: Paris NFT Day† On April 12, entrepreneurs, investors and individuals from across the blockchain sphere barged into the Palais Brongniart to discuss this revolution.

You don’t know that NFTs are the technological revelation of the past two years. Though older, this innovation was propelled to the front of the stage, leading to record sales. For example, one can cite the work NFT” Every day: the first 5000 days » by the artist Beeple sold for the modest $69 million

With this widespread fame, many trendy collections have emerged. Among the most fashionable we can find the crazy monkeys of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, present at the Paris NFT Day. Holders of these cult NFTs could gather around a booth dedicated to this collection; the opportunity for them to discuss developments in this trend and upcoming projects.

This day was also the reason for more young projects to make themselves known and get user feedback. For example, the Solid NFT project, which was present for three days, was a great success. The company, which specializes in printing NFTs on physical media, was a partner of the show. We have seen on several occasions that individuals go to their booths,wallet in hand, to print their precious digital assets. Their technology makes it possible to bring digital works to life, bringing NFTs a little closer to their opponents every day.

An innovative sector

In addition, we were able to discover the company Nifty that are walletdedicated to NFTs† The purpose of the product, like a Ledger key, is to be able to sign trades during NFT exchanges. However, their device has a bigger screen so that the user can view their NFT and browse their gallery. Currently in the marketing phase, the Nifty case will be offered to the general public at a cost of $199.

Finally, Paris NFT Day also saw a large number of conferences led by stakeholders involved in the crypto and NFT ecosystem. For example, the intervention of Patrick Mouratoglou at the “Financing the Next Serena Williams” conference. The tennis player managed to captivate the audience with his innovative proposal: the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS)† With his project, Patrick Mouratoglou wants to modernize tennis to make it a more pleasant version to watch. Obviously, NFTs will serve as a technology overlay to engage viewers and gain a foothold in Web3.

Most of the discussions at the NFT Day in Paris emphasized the interest of these technologies. On the one hand, NFTs provide an idea of: decentralized digital ownership† On the other hand, these technologies suffer from their image among the general public and concrete cases of use need to be developed. However, a large majority of environmental players agree that the development of these tools would not have been possible without all the abuses we have experienced.

The Paris Blockchain Week Summit and Blockchain in all its forms

After the start of the festivities that started during Paris NFT Day, Summit of Blockchain Week in Paris puts blockchain in the spotlight on April 13 and 14. Visitors who made the trip were able to browse the booths of dozens of crypto projects and interact with those who bring this ecosystem to life.

Impossible to talk about Binance without saying a few words about CZ, the CEO. Present at the show, CZ opened these two days at the Palais Brongniart by a conference on the main stage with a packed house. In his speech, the CEO of the world’s largest stock exchange presented the rapid growth his company has experienced since its inception. He even took the opportunity to reveal the secret of the platform’s success: “Binance is 2% strategy, 98% execution!It was also during this conference that CZ announced the opening of an incubator worth €100 million at the startup campus Station F in Paris.

As for the Paris NFT Day, dozens of speakers followed each other on different stages to give their opinion on the future of this ecosystem. It would take dozens of pages to summarize the content of the conferences held during the Paris Blockchain Week Summit. However, we can pick out some of the most compelling points.

The key points addressed by the panelists

First, all speakers argued for their attachment to this ecosystem and how he was pleasant to evolve with people who are eager to build the world of tomorrow† It remains crucial that the first players in this environment thrive there so that the values ​​of the blockchain prevail over profit. Obviously, everyone is there to make a profit, as one speaker happily reminded us. However, the success of Web3 must remain the main driver of this machine and the benefits a consequence!

Then the word ” regulation was ubiquitous in most presentations. Certainly, this ecosystem has developed at full speed with fantastic successes such as Binance. However, the laws set up by the states must be followed and it will be important to establish a clear legal framework for the taxation of cryptocurrencies. Provided that this environment can find its place in the global economy.

Finally there is never had so many people in this universe! The adoption of cryptocurrencies is comparable to the adoption of the Internet in the 2000s. Considering how ubiquitous the Internet is in our lives today, it is not delusional to dream of global adoption in the coming years. Whatever the case may be, a total collapse of this ecosystem seems a little more unlikely every day!
