WORLD’S BIGGEST BLOCKCHAIN SUMMIT SERIES.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has displayed their enthusiasm towards blockchain technology by partnering with the biggest names in the industry. The nation’s central bank has partnered with a leading cryptocurrency developer to create a medium for cross-border transactions, and a digital currency for voluminous transfers.

Saudi Arabia is on a race to overtake its neighboring countries, to establish itself as a leader in the technology space, in the entire Middle East. The conduction of a training boot-camp, related to developing ledger technologies, fortifies the kingdom’s resolve.

The time is now right, to conduct a dedicated blockchain summit in the country, and establish the nation as the ‘Kingdom of Blockchain’. All roads in the middle east are now pointing towards Riyadh.
