Web3 events: The crypto industry is one that mostly revolves around remote collaboration — spanning decentralised networks of both blockchains and communities across the country and globe.
But this week saw hundreds of Web3 enthusiasts gather together in person to celebrate International Women’s Day and the increased participation of more women in this sector.
There’s plenty more events coming up in the next few weeks — and today we’re bringing you some of the latest blockchain industry events in the pipeline, some featuring your fam of The Chainsaw.
Web3 events: Fireblocks Labs: a hands-on workshop on Web3
Taking place in Melbourne on Tuesday the 14th of March and in Sydney on Thursday the 16th of March, Fireblocks will be hosting two Lab workshops where participants can learn how to create their own tokens and build Web3 projects.
The sessions are designed in that no prior experience is necessary to attend, and is aimed at anyone looking to launch stablecoins, security tokens, Web3 games and decentralised applications, mint and burn NFTs or build NFT-based loyalty programs and NFT marketplaces.
The events will be followed by a happy hour for attendees to meet fellow industry participants over drinks and canapés.

Top cricketer Nathan Lyon will also be holding a Q&A during the VIP lunch to share his performance tips and discuss his upcoming digital membership platform for sports.
According to Lisa Teh, founder of Mooning, the event is aimed at demystifying the complexities of Web3 for Web2 leaders, allowing newcomers to learn from and network with some of the leading voices in the space.
“We know how hard it is when you first enter the Web3 space. There is an overwhelming amount of information from so many different sources,” Teh shared. “I hope people can walk away feeling educated, inspired and excited to start exploring.”
