The Blockchain is at a very early stage in its development, like the Internet was in the 1990s. Its implementation is being met with a number of challenges and issues: the lack of standardization and practical applications, fee structure and transferring existing databases into the Blockchain; interoperability between different blockchains; absence of working legislation and many other problems that the community should solve to speed up the process of the Blockchain adoption.

Time for lunch, networking and arranged meetings, discovering the Blockchain solutions presented at the BlockShow Exhibition Hall and enjoying the atmosphere.

The Blockchain is trust? The main goal of this speech is to evaluate the Blockchain-related business cases by understanding the mechanics of decentralized trust. Attack vectors (risks) and defense strategies. Perfect opportunity for those who would like to have a deeper understanding of how one should work with this technology.


Banks are so active in the Blockchain space that we can no longer ignore their advances. In addition, their current investments and activities drive massive attention and trust to the community. As a result, we have decided to create a special session wholly dedicated to providing insights into their current Blockchain-related projects and future perspectives.


During the second part of this session our speakers will introduce solutions for the following industries: Digital ID, Insurance, Remittance and Intellectual Property.



ICOs are taking place all around the world in 2017. Companies raise millions of dollars within hours. Without doubt, ICOs have already become an essential part of crowdfunding. But to what extent is this way of raising funds secure? What will it look like in the future? Four experts with different views, experience and visions will discuss how the tokenization of assets and security is becoming an important factor in the next generation of Blockchain solutions.
