There’s nothing like meeting a Binancian in person, and this year, we’ve been bringing the party to more countries than ever.

There’s no doubt about it: the crypto world is a digital one. But that doesn’t mean we have to stay sat behind our screens all day. If you’ve felt the itch to get out there and meet your fellow Binancians, 2022 has really been your year. For those of you who perhaps didn’t get the chance to join us in person or tune in live, then have no fear. We’re here to recap you on the best of 2022’s events. If you like what you see, then make sure to join in the fun next year. With regular events all across the globe, there’s always something to attend or check out on Binance Live.

Binance Blockchain Week Dubai

Last March, thousands of BUIDLers, Binance users, and crypto enthusiasts met in the Dubai World Trade Centre for three days of world-class blockchain programming. The backdrop to this was critical, as 2021 saw a massive build-up of blockchain-based innovation and media attention.

With the stage set for the blockchain industry, we used the conference to explore and understand how all the pieces would fit together. There was something for everyone as the conference covered three major domains: crypto ecosystem growth (everything related to adoption, industry building & user safety); navigating the NFT, GameFi, and metaverse worlds; mastering the essentials of crypto investment & trading.

But it wasn’t all just about broadening minds and sharing knowledge. With a score of side events, parties, and a Community Super Meetup, we enjoyed the Dubai sun together and reveled in the mood of (at the time!) Binance’s largest event in 2022.

Binance Blockchain Week Paris

After a scorcher in Dubai, we knew we had to do it all over again. Cue September’s Binance Blockchain Week in Paris, six months after our UAE soiree. With the City of Lights as its backdrop, we again looked at what was making the blockchain world tick alongside some fantastique speakers and headliners.

This addition took the suitably Parisian themes of fashion and media and explored them with those who know best. From Maria Sharapova, former ​​world’s No. 1 tennis player, to Panos A. Panay, President of the Recording Academy, our who’s who of the media and blockchain world provided a star-studded cast.

Primavera Sound in Spain and Portugal

Binance literally made its presence heard this year with its very own stage at Primavera Sound. The party never stopped with two full weekends of crypto payments, NFT drops, prizes, drinks, and POAPs across two locations in Barcelona and Portugal.

Over 5000 attendees experienced NFTs firsthand from June 2 to 12 in our two Binance Houses in Porto and Barcelona. Over 35 BNB in prizes were also dished out, along with 5000 drinks to our POAP NFT holders. We were also incredibly proud to provide some real, tangible benefits with our NFTs. 

Primavera Sound attendees of both 2021 and 2022 could claim NFTs providing the holder with a free, full Primavera Sound 2023 ticket. How’s that for a Binance bonus?

Web Summit 2022

Binance was back in Portugal once again for November’s Web Summit in Lisbon, one of the world’s largest technology events. Alongside launching the conference’s first-ever NFT (with 7600+ items claimed), Binance also ran its own booth hosting activities and giveaways.

Attendees had two chances to hear personally from CZ, including an opening night fireside chat and a talk at our community meetup. For those who also got a bit hungry, the Binance food truck was at hand. Visitors could claim a free coffee and a pastel de nata as the Binance truck zipped around several locations in Lisbon. How’s that for street food?

For Binance, sharing our dream, vision, and goal with one of the world’s foremost tech gatherings was incredibly important. It’s always a party when we meet fellow Binancians, and it was nice to introduce more into the fold through our on-site activities in Lisbon.

Binance 5th Anniversary

2022 was a special year for Binance as it celebrated its fifth anniversary in July. After securing French regulatory approval in May, Paris was the perfect place to celebrate our five years of innovation in the blockchain space. You know what they say: Paris is always a good idea.

The one-day, in-person community event took place in the scenic Parc Floral de Paris and focused on the things that make Binance great. Employees, Angels, and Binancians were all represented in a series of talks and activities that, of course, ended with time to cut the Binance birthday cake and a few celebratory drinks.

2023’s Events Are Just Around the Corner

If what you’ve read and seen has got you in the mood for a Binancian bash, 2023 is also set to be jam-packed with large and small events (along with everything in between!). Beyond our flagship gatherings, we’ll also host local meetups worldwide for our community.

The motto for 2023, then? There ain’t no party like a Binance party.
