The Europechain team is very proud to be a supporter of the Blockchain Spirit Barcelona event on the 27th of Feb 2020. As a part of the wider Tech Spirit initiative, which aims to bring the tech and innovation community together to discuss emerging technologies and some of the exciting projects that are happening around the globe.
Blockchain Spirit was born in a Telegram group that was created during the weekend of February 15 and 16 with more than 200 participants. This is where the idea of organizing a blockchain event that brings together companies in the sector to create synergies and grow the ecosystem was brewed. A few days later the idea has become a reality thanks to the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce which proposed to support the event within the Cambra Tech Spirit day along with three other sessions covering 5G, Smart Cities, IoT and LEO technology.
Catalonia and Spain are fast becoming a hub for blockchain and DEFI startups and Europechain is proud to support this vibrant and growing community. Europechain Co-Founder, and eosBarcelona CEO, Josep Rosich has been instrumental in raising awareness for enterprise blockchain in Europe in the region for the past two years. Josep regularly hosts meet-ups and events discussing the benefits of blockchain for business and introducing some of the exciting projects being worked on in the Space.

The Blockchain Spirit event will be held in the beautiful Casa Llotja de Mar (1 Passeig d’Isabel II Barcelona) and will be divided into tracks between the morning and afternoon. Morning talks will be about what this technology means for the future Internet as a society. Afternoon talks will be about decentralized projects, DEFI startups and tech-related to any kind of public or private blockchain.
CEO of Europechain, Rhett Oudkerk Pool said – “As the Mobile World Congress was canceled earlier this month, it was fantastic to see the mobilization of the tech community to put on a replacement event. Europechain are happy to support the event as it is a testament to the passion and commitment of the Barcelona Blockchain Community”
