• Blockchance 2021: activities to address NFTs, cryptocurrencies and climate change

  • This December, we see the return of Blockchance Europe 2021. It will take place in Germany from December 2 to December 4, with over 4,000 attendees expected to be there.

    Details of Blockchance 2021

    After a year-long hiatus due to the pandemic, Blockchance 2021 is returning to an in-person event. This year, it will take place at the conference hall in Hamburg, Germany. The event will include discussions around climate change, regulation, and the tokenization of the cryptocurrency space.

    We will see many big names speak at the event. Joseph Lubin, co-founder of Ether; Raoul Paul, co-founder of Real Vision and former Goldman Sachs executive; and Michael Saylor, CEO of Microstrategy. there are many more speakers and you can find out who via the event’s Twitter page.

    Interestingly, the event will offer a mix of live and online depending on the attendees. If they have the COVID-19 vaccine, they can attend the event in person. However, if not, they can attend virtually. This is a good test to see if online and in-person attendance will work in the future.

    Topics being discussed

    climate change

    Climate change has been an important topic of discussion over the past few years. In particular, over the past month, global leaders have been meeting in Glasgow, Scotland to discuss the impact of the issue and how to address it. Now, at Blockchance, climate change will be a major point of discussion, with an obvious focus on how blockchain can become more environmentally friendly to reduce the impact of climate change. There will be a discussion on how blockchains can comply with ESG standards, as well as an in-depth study of climate accounting systems. Topics such as eco-friendly mining and the impact of Bitcoin and how this compares to its economic potential will also be discussed.


    Regulation has certainly been a major debate throughout the rise of cryptocurrencies and now NFTs. For years, there has been little to no control in this area. This is something that many want to change in order to make cryptocurrency investments safer and more controlled. Several people from the European Commission will dissect the issue of regulation of digital technologies. In addition, others will look at the future of digital law.

    Tokenization and NFTs

    Tokenization and NFTs were a major discussion last year, but those present at the last gathering may not have known that NFTs clearly add a significant change in the broader cryptocurrency market, with billions of dollars coming into that part of cryptocurrency this year alone. Overall, there will be a conversation about the future of the token-based economy. Both of these are relevant to the future of finance. The apparent hype around NFT will be examined in detail. Finally, one speaker will talk about tokenized purchases.
