About

It was just seven years ago that nobody could say what Bitcoin and blockchain were about, but today they are being studied by global banks. Neither actions in Paris nor a range of cyber attacks could cool down the interest of governments and financial giants to such technologies. In order not to get behind and be prepared for tomorrow when blockchain will be applied by the Europeans and Americans, Russia needs an informational floor. International Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Russia 2016 will become the perfect possibility.

Blockchain will not only make money transactions fast and secure, it will also become a decentralized media for creating social projects, say Russian and foreign bankers. As for high-level authorities, they are not so hostile to Bitcoin, as they were just a year ago.

This makes it necessary to discuss the prospects of blockchain technologies in Russia. Smile-Expo is happy to invite everyone to participation in the internatianal Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Russia on April 8, 2016.
