Unveiling Dutch Blockchain Week 2023 

For those unfamiliar with Dutch Blockchain Week 2023, it is a community-driven event week dedicated to making connections, sharing progress, and exploring the landscape of blockchain technology within the Netherlands. Hosted by Blockchain Netherlands Foundation, this event-filled week consists of the BCNL event at the ASML headquarters, a series of ecosystem events organized by the community and strategic partners like EY, Deloitte and Chainanalysis, and the third edition of the highly anticipated Dutch Blockchain Awards. Whether you're a seasoned Web3 veteran or simply curious about Web3, DBW23 extends an open invitation to all, inviting you to immerse yourselves in the world of Web3 over the entire week. 

BCNL Event: Navigating Web 3.0 at the ASML Headquarters 

The main event of DBW23 will be hosted at the ASML headquarters in Veldhoven, next to Eindhoven, a buzzing region known for its thriving ecosystem of innovation and tech-companies. The full-day event will focus on the theme of true enterprise adoption and real-life applications in areas like supply chain management, ID verification, and asset tokenization. It will feature a series of interactive sessions, networking opportunities, and inspiration boosts – all revolving around blockchain technology. 

" It couldn't be out of the question that BCNL is bringing together the entire web3 ecosystem in the world's smartest region – an insanely innovative hotbed – for a full day of web3. We will immerse attendees in interactive conversations and sessions at ASML's beautiful new headquarters. To this end, we have already managed to secure a number of global thought leaders. They will not only guide the audience through the latest technological developments but also share 'lessons learned' from their own organizations regarding implementation and adoption." Jan Scheele

Jan Scheele's words echo throughout the main event's planning, as the organizers look to create an environment that not only educates but also sparks inspiration. With topics like Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), enterprise adoption and the convergence of blockchain with artificial intelligence, the DBW23 main event is set to showcase some of the most interesting developments in the space. The combination of global thought leaders, industry pioneers, and hobbyists alike will undoubtedly ignite excitement among all attendees.
