It follows XDC Foundation's platinum sponsorship of last year's event, and marks a significant milestone in the advancement of blockchain technology within the trade finance sector.

This five-star event, set to take place this autumn in the UK, gathers the industry's most influential figures, including investors, technology innovators, and policymakers, to discuss the future of trade finance. Last year's event, organised by The Trade Finance Distribution Initiative (TFDi), attracted 135 attendees, from more than a dozen countries, representing 90 companies.

XDC Foundation, an organisation committed to fostering innovation and growth within XDC Network's ecosystem, views this partnership with the TFDi as a key opportunity to underscore the critical role of blockchain technology in transforming trade finance. This event serves as an ideal platform for the Foundation to showcase its commitment to developing secure, efficient, and globally accessible financial protocols.

'As platinum sponsors of the Trade Finance Investor Day, XDC Foundation is proud to lead the charge in showcasing how blockchain technology can revolutionise the trade finance industry.' said Billy Sebell, Executive Director, XDC Foundation. ‘Our sponsorship underscores our dedication to fostering innovation and collaboration within the trade finance community. We are committed to supporting initiatives that drive transparency, efficiency, and inclusivity in global trade finance.'

The Trade Finance Investor Day will feature keynotes, panel discussions, and networking sessions designed for meaningful conversations and collaborations among participants. The event will address various critical topics, including the impact of blockchain technology on trade finance, emerging trends, regulatory developments, and investment opportunities within the sector.

André Casterman, CEO, TFDi said, ‘For the second year running, XDC Foundation has decided to partner with TFDi as the exclusive platinum sponsor of the Trade Finance Investor Day. The commitment of the whole XDC community to trade finance will help existing and new investors take advantage of tokenised investment products.'
