E! Entertainment founder and Batman producer among keynote speakers at Philippine Blockchain Week

Blockchain takes center stage this Nov. 28 to Dec. 4 with the biggest names in the technology scheduled to speak at the first Philippine Blockchain Week (PBW) in Manila. Larry Namer, co-founder of E! Entertainment, and David Uslan, Batman producer and co-founder of IP3, are among the elite roster of Web3 speakers that will be sharing insights at the Marriott Grand Ballroom at the Newport World Resorts Manila.

He said:

“We are looking forward to the insights and knowledge that we can learn from these Web3 experts. The Philippines is predominantly Web2. Outside of the country, they are already on Web3. This is a great opportunity to learn as we transition to blockchain technology.”

Lim said:

“The Philippines has the promise of becoming the blockchain capital of Asia. To achieve this, we need to learn more about the technology and see it at work. This is the objective of PBW. We want more Filipinos to educate themselves about blockchain and experience how it can improve their lives.”

Apart from the talks, PBW will also hold gaming expos and an NFT exhibit. The first Philippine Block Awards will take place to honor the men and women behind the country’s blockchain ecosystem.
