In the spring of 2022, I launched a community on the subject of enterprise blockchain in Frankfurt. Especially with the waning of the corona pandemic, I wanted to set a statement and thus boost networking again.

After a few dozen people were interested in the blockchain meetup, the organization of the first meetup was on the agenda. At the same time I was in contact with Marcel Grimm, Lucas Daniel Schmitt, and Marc Anders, who also wanted to start a blockchain meetup in Frankfurt in a similar way. Without further ado, we decided to join forces and organize the meetups together from now on: the idea for a combined DeFi event series in Frankfurt was born.

It’s wonderful to exchange ideas with so many like-minded people.

— Michael Wutzke


The idea for the blockchain events is that we bring people and organizations together on site in Frankfurt to network, exchange experiences, and learn. For this reason, there will be no online streaming or recording of the presentations. At the blockchain events there are not only exciting contacts to be made, but also drinks and food are offered free of charge. Sponsoring (food, drinks) is provided by companies presenting at an event and by TechQuartier (space, billing). All previous blockchain meetups have taken place in the TechQuartier Frankfurt.

Four events have been successfully held since spring 2022:

  1. Market data and the Chainlink ecosystem by BLOCKSIZE CAPITAL
  2. Access for institutions to web3 and yields by Blockdaemon
  3. DeFi 2.0 cross-chain exchanges by SOLA-X
  4. Blockchain initiatives and smart derivative contracts by DZ Bank
  5. Navigating the Future of Finance by Chainlink
  6. Crypto Decoded: How to Diversify Your Crypto Portfolio by MarketVector Indexes

Within a few months, the team of organizers met with great interest among the participants. Due to the great success of the event series, the event series eventually became the blockchain ecosystem Finance Yard.

After the meetups some participants meet for networking, for example in the NFT Skybar.

Due to the great success of the event series, the event series eventually became the blockchain ecosystem Finance Yard in 2024.

Further enterprise blockchain events are planned for 2024, at which well-known brands from the blockchain space are also expected. Because of the large number of participants it has now become more difficult for each individual to find the right person to talk to on site. That’s why for 2024 the focus will be the creation of a community portal that will enable matchmaking for the participants.
