The Government of Cyprus describes it as a country with a positive attitude to blockchain and cryptocurrencies: one has never prohibited bitcoin turnover, ICO campaigns and cryptocurrency exchanges. However, young companies aimed at integrating cryptocurrencies and blockchain still have a number of issues related to the legislation and blockchain development aspects. Therefore, Smile-Expo is organizing the event of the Bitcoin & Blockchain Conference series in Cyprus. Experts will share their opinions and examine case studies of the integration of blockchain and cryptocurrency payments into business.
Conference participants will focus on the following issues:
- ICO as a new way of raising funds, comparison with a conventional venture financing. Token and tokenization economically.
- Blockchain and payments. Blockchain’s role in global financial system modernization. The latest trends in fintech and digital banking services.
- Cryptocurrencies in 2018. Future of bitcoins and altcoins as well as their investors.
- Speculative bitcoin. How market players manipulate cryptocurrency price.
The conference will involve 15 speakers from 10 countries, including Marina Guryeva (well-known blockchain analyst, co-founder at CyberFund), Theodosis Mourouzis (blockchain consultant) and Ismail Malik (Editor In Chief of ICO CROWD). Attendees will also be able to listen to presentations by founders and heads of successful blockchain startups: Jan Sammut (RefToken), Marc Kenigsberg (BitcoinChaser), Ilia Korguzalov (PILIGRIM XXI and ARCONA AUGMENTED REALITY ECOSYSTEM) and others.
