We marked the beginning of the month with our long anticipated "Web3 Tales conference", the first web3 conference in Zagreb as well as the first web3 conference where over 70% of the speakers and panelists were women!
The first edition of the Web3 Tales conference was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The two-day conference, organized exclusively by women from Alice in Blockchains, brought together a diverse group of global experts who discussed the internet and economic revolution and the potential that the new era of the internet will bring. The conference was a resounding success, with packed lecture halls and a sold-out event, as attendees eagerly engaged with the burning topics of decentralization, the metaverse, NFTs, and Web3.
Web3 represents the next generation of the internet, based on the principles of decentralization and openness, allowing users to independently manage their data and possess digital assets. Simultaneously, through technologies like blockchain and cryptocurrencies, a whole new range of innovations is emerging, such as automated transactions and digital proofs of ownership, which will enhance business efficiency and security.
Discussions revolved around the future of the internet and the potential and practical applications of blockchain technology, decentralized finance, NFTs, Web3 gaming, and the metaverse in our personal and business lives. The conference was designed for both existing enthusiasts and those who are eager to discover the potential offered by this rapidly growing technology. Through lectures, panels, and workshops, participants and attendees learned how Web3 already has numerous applications that are revolutionizing everyday business operations.
In addition to the professional program, the conference also featured various accompanying events, with the most significant being the first NFT exhibition in a cultural institution in Croatia. With this exhibition, Zagreb joined the ranks of major global cities and leaders in digital art such as Paris, New York, and Berlin. The exhibition, titled "Techno Healing - Finding Resilience and Well-Being in a Digital World," showcased the works of 10 artists from around the world who explore themes of feminism in the digital age.
