Our team members also came ready as ever, and welcomed over 500 attendees and answered questions about our one-and-only DCore technology. At the booth, they emphasized information about exhilarating projects built on DCore such as ALAX & 3IPK, and also financial companies, like bardicredit, which is also part of our own recent developments. With DCore being a highly flexible technology, its showcase at the conference was an opportunity for other organizations to bridge the gap between blockchain adoption and traditional fintech with DECENT.

The conference brought in dozens of other prominent players in the industry to strengthen cross-border cooperation between Asian and European entrepreneurs and connect Chinese financial regulators and enterprises to identify mutual growth opportunities. Presentations such as 761 Intl. Fintech Space’s “Promote Fintech Innovation Services to Keep Empowering the Jinke New District” set the same collaborative tone that has given the fintech industry so much momentum.
