NETWORKING AND LEARNING
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 DeFiHub event series in Frankfurt was born.
It’s wonderful to exchange ideas with so many like-minded people.

FRANKFURT BLOCKCHAIN COMMUNITY
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:
- Market data and the Chainlink ecosystem by BLOCKSIZE CAPITAL
- Access for institutions to web3 and yields by Blockdaemon
- DeFi 2.0 cross-chain exchanges by SOLA-X
- Blockchain initiatives and smart derivative contracts by DZ Bank
Within a few months, the team of organizers met with great interest among the participants. There were 168 registrations for the last blockchain event in December 2022.
After the meetups some participants meet for networking, for example in the NFT Skybar.
OUTLOOK FOR 2023
Further enterprise blockchain events are planned for 2023, 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 2023 the focus will be the creation of a community portal that will enable matchmaking for the participants.
