Web3 & Blockchain World (W3B) is a global event focused on digital assets and digital transformation in business and government.

W3B connects global leaders and participants from the blockchain ecosystem to realize new and unimagined business opportunities.

Co-hosted by the Blockchain Research Institute, a global independent blockchain think-tank, and MCI Group, the world’s largest engagement agency, W3B will educate, inspire, and prepare leaders to be part of the transformation that Web3 is bringing to business, government, and society.

#W3B

Nov 8-9, Toronto/CA

This November 2022 event in Toronto uses a Canadian camp model that is highly interactive, with Main Lodge Keynotes, Fireside Chats, Campfire Sessions and other festive events.  Attendees will not be passive observers but active participants along with an extraordinary selection of the world’s leading thinkers and practitioners in the Web3 & Blockchain space. 

a message from don tapscott

There is a lot of hype around Web3. As with any disruptive technology, there are many competing sources of information. But if we look beyond the hype and mania—not to mention the fear, uncertainty, and doubt—we see something profound happening.

EDUCATE, INSPIRE, & PREPARE

Why W3B?

We are witnessing one of the largest transformations of wealth in human history—from paper-based analog assets to digital ones. Blockchain represents the first native digital medium for value, and is foundational to the next generation of the Internet—also known as Web3.

W3B explores how blockchain and Web3 are becoming the operating system of the next era of the digital age, enabling the digitization of all assets and the transformation of enterprises.

These are exciting and perilous times. If we all get this right, we will fundamentally change business and society for the better—transforming how we interact online, how we exchange value, and importantly, who gets to participate. If we get it wrong, this technology could become a tool for vested interests to gather wealth, data, and influence. Or, worse, it could become a platform for some new surveillance society.

So, rather than predicting a Web3 future, we’re advocating for one. We’re arguing it should succeed because it could help us usher in a new era of prosperity. We believe the economy works best when it works for everyone.

Ultimately, our message is about prosperity for all.

MADE FOR PEOPLE

Who should attend?

W3B brings together the foremost leaders, thinkers, and innovators in the Web3 and blockchain space under one global format to educate, inspire, and prepare you to be part of the transformation that Web3 is bringing to business, government, and society.

This November, we invite you to join us as we convene some of the best and brightest blockchain leaders, decision-makers, innovators, and trail-blazers from across the globe, for a newly designed experience at W3B 2022.

Understand
Web3

”Web3 aims to replace today’s corporate mega-platforms with blockchain-based decentralized networks that combine the open infrastructure of web1 with the public participation of web2, and thus lead the way to a more open, entrepreneurial internet and digital economy.”

Understand
Blockchain

The foundation of the Blockchain Research Institute’s work is our research. The BRI research program includes dozens of white papers, reports, and case studies about the impact of blockchain on enterprise, industry, and the economy.

Previous Editions

Blockchain is giving us another kick at the can, to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues, create a more prosperous society, and realize the new promise of the digital economy.

At FedEx, we're ready to move and have a long history of game-changing innovation on our side. But our greatest realization this past year is that in order for blockchain to be transformative, it will need to be much bigger than us

Blockchain enables not only different solutions but a different business model; we’re talking about an open, neutral industry platform.

Until we reach that point at which we interface with the world on our terms, and we decide what we want to see, and we decide how much people use our data or not …. that’s where we start to see a real change.
