BSV Global Blockchain Convention Dubai 2022: Day One Highlights


What world do we want?

This question from the keynote address of BSV Blockchain Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen set the tone for the first day of the BSV Global Blockchain Convention, to be held at the Grand Hyatt Dubai from May 24-26.

The major theme of the three-day convention is all the good the BSV blockchain can do in the world. No matter which vertical we are talking about, what is clear is that Bitcoin can create a better world, by enabling people to participate and even earn money in the micropayment economy, by opening up new models for industries, including games and music, by making financial inclusion a reality, by driving down the cost of remittances to the point where they are almost free, by reversing the current model based on advertising and collection of data on the Internet, creating a world of true tokenization with NFTs that have real utility, ushering in the Internet of Things through its integration with IPv6, and most importantly, creating a more honest and open world where anyone can track transactions.

Muhammad Salman Anjum, BSV Hub Manager and Head of InvoiceMate Invoice Management System, and Ahmed Yousif, Middle East Manager of the BSV Blockchain for Government Initiative, greet attendees with a warm welcome Marhaba as well as a presentation of how the Middle East is taking the lead in blockchain adoption.

“Our journey in the region has just begun and we will build this momentum with the help of the ecosystem. The BSV blockchain is here to disrupt the way we share data and promote the value exchange protocol,” said said Yousif.

One of the biggest announcements made on the first day of the convention is the sale of Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s painting “Gabrielle in the Mirror” and its digital twin for a reserve price of $3 million.

“The reserve price is 3 million. What we do is accept expressions of interest because we appreciate that it’s not as easy as selling a painting at a conference,” Symons told CoinGeek.

Still, the potential sale of Renoir’s painting and its digital twin is an important step for the BSV blockchain in the art world, and perhaps even reshape the concept of digital ownership.

“The beauty of NFTs in particular is that the use cases are huge…selling art is different, it’s not an easy process and I really think the art world is becoming very aware of the practical solutions provided by NFTs,” Symons said. . “It helps to facilitate the sale, it helps to oil the wheels of artistic transactions in a way that has never been done before and on top of that, we are entering this cultural space where some people consider that digital art and Digital fine art has the same appeal as real physical editions, and it’s a different concept for some.
