On April 19, we bring together bankers and blockchain developers in Moscow

On April 19, we are going to bring together blockchain developers and entrepreneurs within the annual Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Russia in Moscow. As usually, let’s meet at Red October, but we are expecting to see more attendees compared to 2016, especially taking into account the fact that the program will include some upgrades.

Speakers from six countries have already confirmed their participation, including the representatives of, NRU HSE, Sberbank, Zcash, Alfa Bank, Hyperledger Fabric and Airalab. Many speakers are familiar to the western blockchain community, but have never made reports in Russia.

Attendees will enjoy two streams: Finance and Pro

The Finance section will discuss blockchain in banking and management, as well as legislation issues. The Pro will be dedicated to blockchain implementation in e-commerce, logistics and social projects.

Together with the conference, there will be an exhibition of mining hardware and software for the crypto industry.

The distinctive feature of the conference will be a banking session

Ekaterina Frolovicheva, Managing Director of the innovations center at Sberbank will tell about blockchain projects, implemented by the market leader. More specific topic – the use of blockchain in bills of credit, will be covered by Dina Merkulova, the Trade Finance Director at Alfa Bank.

Their participation in the session was confirmed by Elvira Shakirova, Associate Professor of the State University "Dubna", and Vladimir Fedorov, the representative of Sovcombank.

Among other speakers are regular participants of our conferences: Michael Chobanian, Marina Guryeva and Edgar Bers, as well as fresh faces: Alejandro De La Torre, the representative of, Ariel Gabizon, engineer at Zcash, Duncan Johnston-Watt, the representative of Hyperledger Fabric, and Guy Benhartzi, CEO at Bancor. The list of our speakers will only grow.

More details and registration is available at the event website

Feel free to join us on April 19 at Red October, as well as at our blockchain conferences in Prague, St. Petersburg and Kyiv!
