The 9th edition of the world-renowned flagship Global Blockchain Congress by Agora Group and co-hosted by TDeFi took place on February 21st and 22nd 2022 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Dubai, UAE.
This edition’s theme was “The Decentralized Digital Reality: A gateway to the Metaverse, GameFi & DeFi” and boasted an amazing line up of speakers including the opening Keynote Address by Her Excellency Dr. Maryam Buti Al Suwaidi – Chief Executive Officer, Securities and Commodities Authority of the United Arab Emirates.
The conference agenda focused on building the Metaverse and how Dubai can become the center of this new universe. In fact, we are delighted to launch the term “MetaDubai” at the event where a panel discussion, comprising some of the most influential blockchain leaders in Dubai, debated the concept of MetaDubai.
The Global Blockchain Congress featured more than 60 speakers, 200 investors, 30 sponsors, 20 media partners and more than 400 delegates. There were more than 350 one on one meetings conducted between investors and projects during the two day event.

This initiative is all about finding, supporting and celebrating the change-makers and industry disruptive nomads who dare to challenge the status-quo and endure bumpy roads and failures until finally realizing their dream.

We are very proud to have had Blockchain Valley Virtual as the Title sponsors and Gala Dinner Sponsors, Prasaga as a Strategic Partner and Cocktail Reception Sponsor, Legion Network and Media Coin as Strategic Partners and Coffee Breaks Sponsors.

Agora Group is very excited to announce the launch of the Saudi Blockchain Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on June 6th and 7th, 2022. Blockchain meets Saudi Arabia – this is an event that is long overdue: a platform for government officials, visionaries, leaders, investors, entrepreneurs and global movers and shakers to explore what a marriage between Blockchain and the biggest economy in the MENA region could achieve.
Jay Moore, Prasaga Co-Founder & Chief Collaboration Officer, said:
“Our experience with Agora was exceptional. Every promise exceeded, every opportunity to engage with the right funds exploited. But the real key was that it was all so well curated. Having done so many of these events I have never had such a high hit rate! Of the 22 funds we spoke to we had 20 with a strong fit. The dinner was a hit and the time we enjoyed in the Cleopatra Suite will create lifelong relationships.”
