Event Overview


Mauritius Blockchain Conference

The East African island nation of Mauritius is seeking to brand itself as a regional haven for blockchain innovation. The island nation has well-established financial services, information and communications technology industries, so attracting investors and entrepreneurs in blockchain and financial technology could be seen a logical next step.

According to the World Bank's annual "Doing Business" survey, Mauritius has the best business climate of any country in the region and ranks 49th out of 190 countries worldwide. The World Bank's rankings weigh factors such as ease of starting a business, enforcing contracts, obtaining credit, protecting investors and paying taxes. Such stability and its geographic location has made Mauritius a popular venue for financial services companies looking to make the jump into new markets on the African continent.
With that in mind, we are extremely pleased to announce that we will be hosting Blockchain forum Mauritius on 13th August 2018. This conference brings together industry startups, investors, financial institutions, enterprise technology leaders and academic and policy groups who are building the foundations of the blockchain and digital currency economy. Meet and hear from the biggest names in the industry and powerful newcomers. They are the innovators, thought leaders and decision makers that are driving this discussion forward and changing the traditional notions of currency. Hear about the leading blockchain projects today, and the latest breakthroughs from the group bringing blockchain mainstream.
