ASTANA TO HOLD ITS SECOND MAJOR CENTRAL ASIA BLOCKCHAIN CONFERENCE

In 2017, the total capitalization of crypto assets reached stratospheric level: Bitcoin at a price of $ 20,000, creation of new tokens and innovative projects based on Blockchain, DLT and ICO as a unique crowd funding phenomenon that permeated throughout the world.

It is no mere chance that the 21st century has been recognized as the cryptocurrency era. Many experts believe that the future of the global financial system is behind the crypto currencies and Blockchain. The essential task of today is to build and learn how to manage this system for the benefit of us and our future.

The previous year has demonstrated that the industry itself is developing rapidly and therefore the world market is not able to regulate it and respond quickly to its operation. Only a few countries have dared to establish the qualitative legal framework in order not to oppose but to cooperate with a new form of economy.

Kazakhstan has also been involved in the discussion of issues related to regulation of digital currencies and introduction of Blockchain. According to experts, the Republic of Kazakhstan has every chance of becoming one of the most advanced countries in the field of Blockchain. The country has everything to succeed: financial resources, the state initiative and the desire to create its own crypto oasis.

The capital of Kazakhstan will host for the second time the major Blockchain conference of Central Asia Blockchain Conference Astana on June 14, 2018. This international event will bring together leaders of the blockchain and crypto industries from all over the globe to shape the way in which the digital economy of Kazakhstan may be developed.

What may the guests of Blockchain Conference Astana 2018 expect?

  • Reports by leading speakers from around the world
  • Discussion panels covering the most relevant topics
  • Expo area
  • Coffee breaks and informal communication

Very soon the first speakers of this year’s conference will become known, so follow the event updates.

What will be discussed?

Today, all are concerned about the interaction of the cryptocurrency industry with banks, the use of Blockchain in various fields, and, of course, the introduction of Blockchain and cryptocurrency regulation at the state level. All this and much more, including how Kazakhstan will be one step ahead and occupy a niche on the world crypto stage, will be discussed at the second annual Blockchain Conference Astana to be held in Astana on June 14, 2018.
