Riyadh Summit

In collaboration with Think Tech, an initiative from the Ministry of Communications & IT for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the BSV Blockchain Association invites you to join global industry leaders to learn how blockchain technology can advance Saudi Vision 2030.

This dynamic summit will cover how blockchain can unleash the power of data as the “new oil”, specific blockchain use cases, and advice on how to begin the blockchain journey.

The event is powered by the BSV blockchain – which is capturing global attention with its massive scaling, rapid growth and powerful technical capabilities. BSV is the ideal blockchain to support the large-scale needs of government, enterprise and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

  • The importance of scaling and how a massively-scaled blockchain is critical for Saudi Vision 2030
  • Technical capabilities of blockchain: micropayments, data management, data integrity, tokenization, smart contracts, IoT devices, computation & more
  • Use cases for blockchain technology across many industry sectors – FinTech, health care, e-government services, supply chain, construction, smart cities, esports & online games, NFTs, Metaverse, environmental sustainability and more
  • How government agencies, enterprises & start-up ventures in KSA can begin to implement blockchain

* This summit is intended for government and business leaders and institutional investors interested in blockchain growth in the KSA. There is no fee to attend but space is limited. If you are interested in attending, please submit a request through our application form.
