The World Blockchain Summit (WBS) is a global blockchain event that aims to connect emerging startups in the blockchain industry with regional businesses, government authorities, IT leaders, tech entrepreneurs, investors and blockchain developers. The event is part of a global series that occurs across more than 10 global destinations. This year, the WBS will be hosted in Dubai, UAE on the 23rd and 24th of October, 2019 at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel.

UAE, being one of the most embracing nations in terms of blockchain and cryptocurrency adoption, it is a wonderful opportunity for promising blockchain startups to present their case ahead of 200+ investors and 500+ C-level executives, apart from being part of a global business network.

The summit, spanning across two days will feature conferences and panel discussions on important topics like ‘Convergence of AI and Blockchain’, ‘Blockchain and Finance’, ‘Blockchain Scalability Potential’ among others. Apart from these, WBS Dubai 2019 will also host a pitch competition wherein more than 40 startups will present their ideas.

Among the exhibitors, one of the most exciting entrants this year is Panama-based Payment Porte, which is coming up with its Stellar blockchain-based cross border digital payments solution. It is specifically aimed towards easing up the existing pain points in the billion-dollar maritime and shipping industry, which heavily depends on cross border payments. Payment Porte claims its platform to be an end to end digital payments solution, to enable decentralized, encrypted, and secure transactions, while reducing cost and time involved.

“I am extremely excited to be a part of WBS Dubai 2019. We all know, how big an opportunity this is to connect with a genuinely interested blockchain community — be it, potential users, investors, or regional businesses willing to utilize our upcoming platform. I am looking forward to utilizing this opportunity and introduce Payment Porte on a global platform. We believe in our vision, and through this exhibition, I am confident of aligning the global community to our vision.” – Jeff Catalano, Managing Director, Payment Porte.
