The summit serves as a platform for sharing information, networking, and collaborating among the selected attendees. The event will feature diverse programs, including sessions, panel discussions, and workshops on a range of topics. Decentralized banking, new governance and charter zones, digital identification, payments, and the blue carbon economy will be a few of the topics to be discussed.
The event is endorsed by the Office of the Presiden of Palau, according to Mr. Alan Seid, one of the founding members of the Palau Blockchain Society.
