Global DeFi Investment Summit 11-12 October Dubai UAE


Following the success of the Global DeFi Investment Summit that took place without any blemish at the  Dusit Thani Hotel in Dubai from 2-3 June 2021. This summit, the first of its kind, which has the aspiration of connecting investors, regional businesses, and leaders across all sorts of industries to the DeFi ecosystem, was a novel event in the Blockchain space. Curated based on industry modalities from top experts, it has emerging start-ups’ growth and global expansion in mind. The end goal was to bridge the gap between investors, experts, and DeFi projects. Further, the summit is a platform to create awareness about the DeFI ecosystem on the international stage and forge networks among Blockchain and digital asset communities from all over the world. It is a series of confab scheduled across five countries around the globe to showcase the best projects in Decentralized Finance while creating investment opportunities and avenues for them to expand. 

As the DeFi industry burgeons at an admiring rate and disrupts the traditional legacy financial system,  allowing anyone anywhere in the world to invest without 3rd parties and regulatory hindrances, it is imperative to create the springboard for start-ups in the space. This rationale inspired the summit, and we are thrilled to announce that it was a blazing success. Over 200 people attended in person. Moreover, Gulf  Xellence utilized the internet to enable more than 2000 people across the world to participate. It is considerably invigorating to announce that the summit attracted some of the best names in the industry as speakers. More than 25 prominent speakers engaged in two keynote addresses, six-panel discussions, and numerous presentations over the two days. Keynote Speakers Chaired by Jen Buakaew, Founder of To the  Moon Lab, Keynote speakers for the Global DeFi Investment Summit, Dubai, included Justin Sun, Founder at Tron Foundation, and Tim Draper, Founder at Draper Associates. Sun threw light on how DeFi is gradually changing the face of how the world is going to invest. Speaking via video, Draper explained that through DeFi, no one would be left behind when it comes to financial inclusion in the coming future. He urged the world to explore Decentralized Finance and how the Blockchain will change the world completely.
