Our Presence at Paris Blockchain Week

This year, the European Students Blockchain Coalition (ESBC) was thrilled to participate in Paris Blockchain Week with a vibrant and diverse group of 50 students from 8 different countries across Europe. This eclectic mix of young, talented, and motivated individuals brought together a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives, creating a dynamic and inspiring atmosphere throughout the event.

Rodrigo and Vince’s Workshop on stage

One of the standout moments of the week was when our founders, Vince and Rodrigo, took the stage to unveil their latest project: a Bitcoin node, runned by a student organization. Their presentation was met with great enthusiasm as they shared their expertise and passion with the audience. During a dedicated workshop, they explained in detail how a Bitcoin node works, providing attendees with a deeper understanding of the technology behind Bitcoin. Their engaging and informative session was a highlight of the conference, showcasing the innovative spirit of ESBC.

ESBC Side Event at Ledger Headquarters

Adding to the excitement, we hosted our own side event at the prestigious Ledger headquarters. Known worldwide for their top-notch hardware wallets, Ledger offered us an exclusive preview of their newest product: the Ledger Stacks. Our students had the unique opportunity to get hands-on experience with this cutting-edge product before its official launch.

The event at Ledger was not only informative but also incredibly fun. We enjoyed delicious pizza and drinks, creating a relaxed and enjoyable environment for networking and sharing experiences. It was a fantastic opportunity to explore Ledger’s latest innovations while bonding with fellow students and blockchain professionals in a more informal setting.


Paris Blockchain Week was an absolute blast for the European Students Blockchain Coalition. The diverse presence of our students, the inspiring presentation by our founders, and the exclusive experience at Ledger made it an unforgettable week. We gained valuable insights, forged new connections, and had a great time doing it. We can’t wait to participate again next year and continue our journey in the blockchain community.
