Future Blockchain Summit
As we set our eyes to draw traction from the biggest Crypto friendly geographies in the globe, we set foot in Dubai to attend, represent and showcase ShipFinex at the Future Blockchain Summit. It was a power-packed 4 day event that attracted visitors, investors, builders and Web3 enthusiasts and even folks from Web2 who wanted to explore what new is coming up in the space of blockchain.
We took a booth at the Future Blockchain Summit whereby the ShipFinex team attended the visitors, explained to them what we are building at ShipFinex and intrigued everyone’s interest into this unique asset class through the concept of real-world asset tokenisation and fractional ownership. Apart from this, our COO, Capt.Vikas Pandey also showcased ShipFinex as a project at the BlockStage in the Future Blockchain Summit arena led by an Q&A session. It truly was an eventful experience for the team to connect with such a matured Web3 crowd and create a brand name for ShipFinex at such a global stage.
