Topics and Speakers
Zach Pister, a co-founder and Chief Development Officer at Intrepid Ventures, was the headliner of the event, as well as Herns Hermida, Business Group Lead at Microsoft Philippines.
Zach Pister covered the topic of ICO regulation and identified key points for developers who want to use blockchain technology in their business.
Herns Hermida talked about the potential of blockchain in business and how Microsoft Azure uses blockchain-based solutions.
Although all the participants agreed that it is necessary to establish rules to control “self-regulating” and decentralized blockchain space, not all came to a single conclusion regarding the level of state intervention.
The exhibition area became a space for communication between developers, investors and potential partners. Ubiatar and Datum.org projects were the most interesting for visitors.
Our next conference will be held in St. Petersburg, on February 13.
