The initial BSV Global Blockchain Convention’s inauguration was held at the Grand Hyatt in Dubai. The three-day convention, hosting over almost 2,000 in-person and virtual attendees, as well as more than one hundred businesses, featured a variety of speakers and panel discussions concentrated around the real-world applications and powers of the BSV blockchain. On the first day the convention focused on presentations and conversations concerning blockchain scaling, gaming, the metaverse, NFTs and much more. Key highlights and announcements from the first day include:
Buzzmint’s announcement of a digital twin of a Renoir painting at auction:
Buzzmint, an organization that allows brands to produce tokens quickly and NFTs of their digital assets to the market and sell through a fully integrated storefront, formally made public the impending auction of Pierre August Renoir’s ‘Gabrielle Holding a Mirror with a Portrait of Coco.’ The mentioned/listed price is currently $3 million, and the winning bidder will receive the actual physical painting as well as its digital NFT twin.
Connecting the physical world to the metaverse with Transmira:
The first-ever metaverse platform to effortlessly blend augmented reality(AR) and virtual reality(VR), Transmira Omniscape will feature 3D maps of actual cities that will permit users to purchase virtual real estate and then commodify it for use in the physical world. For instance, if a coffee shop chooses to drop an NFT just outside its virtual shop, or any arena wants to sell virtual seats for an upcoming concert, Omniscape is intended to be able to provide these types of real-world capabilities.
In summarizing Transmira’s co-founder Robert Rice’s vision of the metaverse, he said, that he would like to describe [the metaverse] as the package of all of the data and information of everything digital that surrounds us but presented in a way which is more immersive and interactive, whether it’s through augmented reality(AR) or virtual reality(VR).
Making blockchain use more accessible with Gate2Chain
Gate2Chain makes blockchain integration more reachable for businesses through its extensive suite of tools. Currently, instead of having vast blockchain knowledge, only minimal coding experience is required to complete a build of this level.
Describing the platform, its co-founder and COO Joe Holles de Peyer said that for blockchain to really deliver on what it promises, they need to get to work changing the mindset. They want to help people move from mass opportunism to mass opportunity. The company also announced their collaboration with TRUEWORLD Organization. This partnership will allow real-time monitoring of environmental indicators and the sustainability claims. The capabilities sit on a dynamically updated infrastructure built by TRUEWORLD, accredited by organizations, and recorded to the blockchain using Gate2Chain.
The second day of the BSV Global Blockchain Convention will concentrate on the intersections of blockchain technology with the entertainment, financial services and IoT industries. Topics will include music, sports, transactional services, digital assets etc. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to speakers and moderators like Marc Scarpa-the Co-Founder of DeFiance Media; Somi Arian-the Founder & CEO of FemPeak; and Dr. Craig Wright-the Chief Scientist of nChain.
