CLC & Partners at Blockchain Ireland Week


CLC & Partners had the privilege and pleasure of participating in Blockchain Ireland Week 2023, a prominent event in the global blockchain and Web3 landscape. The event was held in Dublin, Ireland, a fitting backdrop given Ireland’s distinction as a ‘leader’ on the United Nations’ list of technologically advanced countries.

The event gathered a select mix of individuals from around the world – innovators pushing the boundaries of technology, investors keen on supporting the next big idea, regulators striving for a balanced and effective governance framework, and policymakers dedicated to enabling a conducive environment for blockchain technologies.


Sharing Visions and Building Futures 

One of the event’s distinguished guests was Minister Michael McGrath TD from the Department of Finance Ireland. Further enhancing the dialogue were notable representatives from global crypto giants like BinancePolygonRippleAlgorand and Circle. Additionally, the presence of Brian McGleenon from Yahoo! Finance, along with cybersecurity experts and industry pioneers, enriched the discourse with their unique insights and perspectives.

This exciting journey presented us with various connections, platforms for exchanging visions, and the privilege to express our vision to a global audience. Our participation highlighted the importance of such events in advancing the blockchain and Web3 industries.


Shaping an Inclusive Future

The event was a powerhouse for innovation as our team initiated and participated in crucial conversations with emerging and established entities within the Web3 sphere. The conference resonated with lively discussions on various sectors like supply chain management and public governance, underlining blockchain’s potential impact.
The “Women in Blockchain” panel was among the highlights of Blockchain Ireland Week. Moderated by Ciara O’Brien from the Irish Times, the panel featured an esteemed line-up of speakers who shared their unique perspectives and proposed actionable strategies to promote greater inclusion in the tech industry. As a firm that actively champions women in transformative technologies, we at CLC & Partners found the discussion insightful and empowering. 
In the spirit of promoting diversity and inclusivity in the tech and business world, it is noteworthy to mention that two key members of our team, our Chief Creative Officer, Isabell Wermescher, and our Chief Compliance Officer, Tiana Whitehouse, are active members of the Association for Women in Crypto. Their involvement in the association embodies our commitment to encouraging more women to explore and excel in the exciting worlds of blockchain and deep tech.
Listening to such female leaders discuss their pioneering roles and projects was insightful and resonated with our values. We appreciate that forums like this offer a platform to share insights, challenges, and success stories, encouraging more women to participate and excel in business and the blockchain industry. Through such dialogues, we can create a more inclusive future where the next generation of women leaders feels empowered to make their mark and contributions.
‍‍Staying Ahead of the Curve

The alliances forged during these conversations have left us enthusiastic about the prospect of these relationships’ growth.

The event also fostered a deeper understanding of our current alliances, allowing us to identify potential areas for collaboration and joint growth. The diverse perspectives and expertise presented throughout the conference highlighted the transformative potential of integrating various technologies, methodologies, and industry standards in our operations. This was particularly relevant as we engaged in rich discussions about emerging trends in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and the broader digital economy. These conversations served as a catalyst for us to stay ahead of the curve and continue delivering the best for our clients.
