The UNLOCK Blockchain 2020 Forum will be held in Abu Dhabi – UAE on February 25th-26th. The 2020 forum is the third series of UNLOCK and hopefully the biggest yet. UNLOCK has been an integral part of the blockchain ecosystem in the region as it sheds light on what is being done in Blockchain across the MENA region and specifically in the GCC. The UNLOCK series has brought together more than 800 attendees, 115 speakers, 15 major sponsors, 70 blockchain startups, 70 media partners and more than 30 investors from across 50 countries.
UNLOCK has also been a strong proponent for international and regional blockchain startups. The 2020 UNLOCK Blockchain forum will have the event’s first UNLOCK Blockchain challenge with prizes to top three startups ranging from $15,000 to $5,000. The challenge is open to all startups participating at UNLOCK either through a stand or the UNLOCK Startup ecosystem sponsorship.
The focus in 2020 will be on the success stories in the MENA region whether governmental, financial, health, or others. The tokenization movement will also be discussed including Security token offerings across the board and the rise of crypto exchanges in the MENA region.
