Bankless Times is happy to serve as a media partner for Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Stockholm, taking place on Sept. 7. Organizers Smile-Expo have held successful events in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Russia and the Ukraine. Please read on for an event description.
On Sept. 7, for the first time, the Swedish capital will host a large conference dedicated to blockchain technology and cryptocurrency – Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Stockholm.
Key topics include the implementation of blockchain technology in business, legal regulation of cryptocurrencies (practices of various jurisdictions), increasing living standards using new technologies, and development of smart contracts in the decentralized economy.
Special attention will be paid to fintech blockchain development. Participants will analyze already existing blockchain-based projects in the banking sector with plenty of analysis and discussion involved.
In autumn 2016, Sveriges Riksbank, Sweden’s central bank, announced its plans for the development of a national cryptocurrency. These plans may be implemented within two years. The Swedes use traditional money more rarely: since 2009 the amount of coins and cash in Sweden has been reduced by 40 per cent.
Blockchain development in the country is supported by the government. In 2016, there was an experiment on transferring records on land ownership right in the digital format. The project involved the blockchain-based technology of smart contracts.
In addition, Nasdaq Stockholm exchange issued the first bitcoin-based security. The Bitcoin Tracker One asset received a certificate of the governmental financial regulator and was accepted for trading.
In June, the Swedish project on blockchain implementation in the energy sector was launched. Vattenfall, a government corporation, together with 20 European companies started the development of a blockchain platform for electricity trading.
These and other blockchain projects will be discussed by the participants of Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference.
According to the organizers, participation in the conference is already confirmed by Eric Benz, the managing director at the Bitcoin debit cards issuing company Cryptopay, Frank Schuil, CEO at Safello Bitcoin exchanges and Karolina Marzantowich, the leading developer of IBM’s Polish branch.
Together with the conference, there will be an exhibition of crypto hardware, software and services for the industry.
