$5.2B, according to CB Insights. For the first nine months of 2021, global VC funding into blockchain hit $15B, up 384% from 2020′s full-year total of $3.1B.
European Blockchain Convention co-CEO Victoria Gago said: “Barcelona is still EBC’s home, but with the Covid-19 outbreak being still a health emergency in Barcelona and Europe, we have to think of what’s best for our attendees. The safest answer is to host EBC fully online in 2021. We look forward to welcoming attendees back to Barcelona in 2022.”
“This edition is an opportunity to increase exponentially our impact in the space. Never before in history has there been such an event with so much quality content about blockchain”, says Daniel Salmerón, co-CEO of the European Blockchain Convention. “We expect to shatter our past attendance record and this translates into multiplying the networking opportunities for our attendees.”
In the last edition, female attendance was at 38%. As part of the 50/50 initiative, the organization aims to reach 50% this year as diverse teams cover more ground, ask more questions, exhibit more innovative thinking and create better working environments.
