Technology is great, but what if it is threatening our democracy? It is less than a week until Oslo Blockchain Day, the program is ready and there are over 35 speakers soon on their way to Oslo from all over the world.
By 2030, the implementation of blockchain will generate $ 3.1 trillion in value, and that's just the beginning. It is estimated that an annual gain of blockchain in the public sector will be at least $ 15 billion, and our government will understand the benefits of it to society. Will blockchain threaten or strengthen democracy and privacy? At the conference, you meet experts, entrepreneurs and lawyers who create new regulations and implement blockchain in the Middle East, Estonia, UK and Norway.
The conference would not be possible without our partners and sponsors - Kantega, Berkeley Research Group, Mishcon de Reya, Opera, EY, Skye. Thank you!
