Indian Blockchain Week Schedule

The conference will feature a week-long series of Web3-focused events from December 4th to December 10th.

It begins with a ‘warm-up’ session on Monday and Tuesday, December 4th and 5th. This includes hackathons, side events and parties.

The IBW Headline Conference will take place on December 6th and 7th, i.e. Wednesday and Thursday, followed by the ETHIndia Hackathon. The ETHIndia Hackathon set a record as one of the largest Ethereum hackathons last year with over 2,000 participants and over 450 project submissions.

The main venue for the IBW conference will be the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Whitefield, Bangalore’s premier IT and commercial hub.

MarketAcross Becomes Main Media for IBW

MarketAcross, the world’s leading Web3 PR and marketing agency, known for its work in the region with companies such as Polygon and Hashed Emergent, will be attending the event as global lead media.

MarketAcross is the official media partner of multiple Web3 events such as Korea Blockchain Week, WebX, Paris Blockchain Week, and IVS Kyoto.

The Indian government, which has historically been skeptical of cryptocurrencies and is now striving for globally harmonized regulation at the G20 summit, is facing a number of regulatory hurdles. India is fast emerging as one of the major adopters of Web3.

While the list of speakers for the IBW Headline Conference has yet to be revealed, Hersh Emergent has confirmed that prominent local and global leaders in the blockchain industry will be attending.
