Stockholm to Host its First Blockchain Conference to Integrate Technology and Industry

Stockholm will host its first-ever blockchain and cryptocurrency conference on September 7, 2017. According to its press release, there will also be conferences in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Prague, Kiev, and Tallinn. The participants will discuss the blockchain development within the FinTech community.

“We’re sure that blockchain will become as commonplace as the Internet and smartphones. The Organizer Smile Expo invites Blockchain-enthusiasts from business and government who are already aware of the benefits of new technology,” stated the event organizers on its official website.

Participating in the conference is not cheap though, a ticket costs 2,000 SEK or 207 EUR. However, participants will be surrounded by experts in the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. The speakers include IBM Distinguished Engineer Karolina Marzantowicz, who is also a member of the IBM Academy of Technology. She will speak about the “Blockchain impact on Energy & Utility industry”, which is a current concern for Sweden since, in June, the government of the country launched a project to implement blockchain tech to the energy sector.

According to the conference’s press release, a department of the government corporation Vattenfal, in cooperation with 20 companies in Europe, started the development of a blockchain platform for electricity trading. “The main participants are IT developers, entrepreneurs, investors, software, and equipment manufacturers. The speakers are managers of the well-known companies and representatives of governmental authorities,” the hosts write on the conference’s website.

The hosts emphasized that, because of the high number of recent implementations of the blockchain technology in the banking sector, “there will be a lot of analytics and discussions” in the conference about such topics. “We will focus on Sweden and foreign projects implementing Blockchain and cryptocurrencies. We will discuss all the aspects of creating innovative IT products – from the emergence of idea to entering the market,” the hosts wrote on the website. By using the blockchain tech and smart contracts, Sweden could be the first country to have a blockchain-based land registry.
