The Luxembourg Blockchain Lab, along with its five founding members Infrachain, Lëtzblock, The LHoFT, LIST and SnT, believe that the adoption of Blockchain technology will have a significant impact on our daily lives.

The audience will get a unique oversight of the technology’s potential and its impact for citizens and businesses.

Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, who is also Minister for Digitalisation, said “Blockchain is not only about cryptocurrencies, but also about helping us reach our sustainable development goals, securing our health data and enabling more resilient supply chains. I’m excited to see Luxembourg’s blockchain success stories during this year’s blockchain week. It is amazing to see what we can achieve when we bundle up our forces behind an alliance like the Blockchain Lab!”
Emilie Allaert, Project Lead of the Luxembourg Blockchain Lab added “Luxembourg has a growing Blockchain Ecosystem which is being nurtured and sees a variety of applications in a number of industries. The Luxembourg Blockchain Lab wants to deliver concrete solutions to the various industries. Raising awareness about the technology is also one of our missions and we hope the Luxembourg Blockchain Week will help newbies and experts discover and embrace the potential of the technology.”
