·10 min read

SHANGHAI, Sept. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- 2022 is the year when the transition towards a digital life has never been more acceptable and urgent. It marks the 2022 Shanghai International Blockchain Week and has also been the first year that we have decided to make our summit an entirely online one.

The Blockchain Week will be hosted online from September 16 to 28, comprising Wanxiang Blockchain Hackathon Fall 2022 (Sept. 16-18), Open Day (Sept. 19), and the Eighth Global Blockchain Summit.

As an exciting warmup event for 2022 Shanghai International Blockchain Week, Wanxiang Blockchain Hackathon Fall 2022, under the theme of "Together for A Shared Future in Blockchain", sets three tracks, namely the Green Future of low carbon and environmental protection, the Blue Future of Web3.0 and the Colorful Future of Digital Transformation. It gathers talented blockchain developers and excellent minds in relevant fields to push forward the development of Web3.

This year's Open Day will be 2022 Web3.0 Bootcamp Demo Day, which will include project demonstrations from the selected teams, talks and discussions focused on Web3, and an amazing cocktail party organized by Parity that evening.

The 8th Global Blockchain Summit, guided by People's Government of Hongkou District, Shanghai, is scheduled to take place from September 20 to 28. Nine days of the event will be separated by a lineup of themed forums, alongside an opening ceremony on the first day, each lasting for 2-3 hours. These forums will include talks and discussions centered on topics like blockchain technology, Layer2, DAO, Web3.0, privacy preserving, data governance, Metaverse, carbon neutrality, and IoT.

We're also excited to announce all our confirmed sponsors:

Diamond: DFINITY
Platinum: Protocol Labs, Qtum, NEAR Protocol, Web3 Foundation
Gold: Ningxia Western Cloud Data Technology Co. Ltd. (NWCD), Chainlink
Startup: Riverman, Relation Labs, Mortise Labs
