Additionally, attendees can take advantage of networking opportunities, enjoy after-parties and dinners, embark on a VIP riverboat cruise, and immerse themselves in an events-filled week.
Here’s a preview of what else attendees can anticipate:
In just over a week, the doors will open to this year’s web3 event: Zebu Live 2023.
From Oct. 5 to 6, Zebu Live, held at the Fireworks Factory, Woolwich, on London’s South Bank, will be inviting over 3,500 IRL attendees.
Over 150 companies and 200 expert speakers are expected at Zebu Live 2023.
Representatives from Coinbase will be among the companies and partners attending the conference. Also present is Lissen, a web3 streaming app that brings music creators and fans closer. CafeCosmos, the Farmville-style space café game, will avail its web3 gameplay.
Representatives from Tezos, the self-governing layer-1; Zodia Custody, a crypto custody project, will also be in attendance; and Attestant – who provide non-custodial Ethereum staking services for institutions, will be in attendance.
Attendees will have the chance to meet team members from Solana, a layer-1 project known for its low-cost, speedy transactions and scalability.
Web3 builders from Keyko AG will be there to help organisations enter the space, easing the way for decentralization, user-adoption, governance, and compliance.
Appold, who are independent advisors specializing in blockchain, can give institutions the guidance needed to tokenize assets and enter decentralized finance (defi).
EU and UK companies looking for crypto-integrated banking will also get a chance to speak to Nordark about their IBAN accounts that enable easy swapping between crypto and fiat. Meanwhile, the G-20 Group of trading experts will be making an appearance to promote their liquidity provision, market making, asset and treasury management, and advisory services.
Attendees will also learn more about ZkSync, the layer-2 that leverages the scaling power of zero-knowledge rollups, from the team members at Zebu Live.
Activities and Talks
There will be over 28 hours of talks, panel discussions, and workshops throughout the two-day event.
Day 1: Thursday
The first event on Thursday morning is the panel discussion “How can web3 gaming go mass market?” Attendees will join GameFi experts Jon Hook from PlayEmber, Francis Brankin from Shrapnel, Jeremy Foo of Trilitech, Melanie Dow from the Blockchain Game Alliance, and Adrian Krion of Spielworks to explore how web3 games can break out of the cryptoverse. The panel will address a key issue in web3 gaming: how to overcome its negative image among mainstream gamers.
Later, the alpha stage will host Oliver Brandtvig (Nordark) and Jolyon Layard Horsfall (Flight3), who will debate The Future of Trading.
In October, new Financial Conduct Authority rules will effectively ban derivatives trading in the UK, making this a highly relevant and interesting discussion.
In web3 for Environmental Good, Michael Mazur of UrbanChange Protocol, the digital sustainability researcher Catherine Mulligan, artist Karina Abramova, Kirsteen Harrison from Zumo, and Radoslav Dragov of Open Forest Protocol will explain how the crypto movement can not only be sustainable but even drive projects that have a tangible ecological impact.
In the late afternoon, macro investor Raoul Pal, the co-founder and CEO of Real Vision media, will talk about The Future of Finance. Attendees will hear his views on how web3, no-fungible tokens (NFTs), and defi can disrupt traditional finance (tradfi) and transform money, investing, and banking.
Day 2: Friday
Mo Gawdat, Ex-chief business officer at Google [X], will speak on the main stage about the fascinating topic of AI and the future of the Internet, humanity, and all things.
Attendees keen on How to find the Alpha will get a chance to hear from BiT SHaMaN of The Gem Hunters, the crypto researcher and analyst Lewis Jackson, Jamie Elkaleh of Bitget, and Crypto Saving Expert Jordan TMG (a.k.a. That Martini Guy) as they mull over the best way to identify low-cap and startup projects with high potential.
A panel of Alejandro Gutierrez (Defactor), the metapreneur Lara Assi, Sophia Shluger (PV0.one), Michael Gale (LXRY Hotel), and Weiwu Zhang (Smart Token Labs) will be on the Alpha Stage discussing asset tokenization in Tokenized Treasures: Unleashing Alternative Assets in the Crypto Frontier.
In the afternoon, those interested in kick-starting or leveling up their web3 career will have a chance at the workshop, Opportunities in web3.
This workshop is run by Anthony Beaumont, CEO and co-founder of Encode Club – a community of developers, professionals, and students interested in emerging technologies.
