Commenting on this game-changing event, Adam Geri, head of the DCS Organizing Committee, said: “Interest in the Blockchain space has been growing rapidly for start-ups, entrepreneurs and legacy organizations. However, for governments and large multinationals, the situation is more challenging, hence the importance of DCS. Such events are the ideal platforms to launch discussions on ways to stir these organizations into action by identifying specific opportunities and the technical, organizational, cultural and talent changes necessary to realize new benefits.”

“Abu Dhabi is on the forefront of international cities that realize the future of Blockchain and digital currencies. With DCS we are taking the discussions to a more global level with a live and on-demand format targeting 100 million online followers and 50 million+ online visitors to the event,” he added.

As part of Blockchain World, the core focus of this event ranges from enterprise and government adoption of Blockchain to its diversity and social impact in a fast-changing world. The discussions will also focus on how Abu Dhabi can build a multibillion-dollar Blockchain economy or what is poised to become the new digital oil of the Middle East. Did you know for example that approximately  90 percent of the world’s data in 2013 was created between 2011 and 2012?  At the end of 2020, the virtual weight of all the information in the world was 44 zettabytes (trillion gigabytes), a figure featuring 21 zeroes!

In addition, the UAE Governments Emirates Blockchain Strategy 2021 targets to evolve up to 50% of government transactions onto blockchain technologies, in order to become more efficient and cost-effective, whilst creating a faster and safer set of processes for UAE residents to engage in government services. Being able to directly interact with audiences is such a key benefit of the blockchain.  By adopting this technology, the UAE government expects to save:

  • AED 11 billion in transactions and documents processed routinely
  • 398 million printed documents annually
  • 77 million work hours annually.
