22 - 25 October 2018 – closed 4th meeting of ISO/TC 307 Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies

26 October 2018 – International forum on the implementation of blockchain technologies Blockchain in the Digital Economy

It is no longer a secret that blockchain is a crucial end-to-end technology of the digital economy helping make the economy more efficient. World leaders have long been touting this technology as the gateway to the future. According to research from the World Economic Forum, 10% of global GDP will be localized in the blockchain as early as 2027.

For businesses, the main motivation to implement the blockchain are process optimization and cost reduction. According to the Accenture consulting company, blockchain technology cuts expenses in the banking industry by an average of 30%. In fact, the rate of global blockchain implementation is very high already. Juniper Research, an American research center, concluded that as of August 2017, 57% of companies with more than 20 thousand employees are already implementing blockchain, or planning to do so. The technology is most frequently used in finance, while the main blockchain outsiders are the consumer and power industries. Experts believe that in Russia, blockchain will primarily be the most in-demand in the state and banking sectors, where the main objective is achieving transparency and protecting against data changes.

Within framework of the forum Blockchain in the Digital Economy, which will be held on 26th October, participants will discuss ideas and cases participants will exchange experience and expert opinions through discussions on ideas and cases on the development of blockchain-based projects, effective use of the technology, the role and place of public authorities in this process, and current solvable and unsolvable blockchain issues.


The leading players in the blockchain industry and community will be at the event, including representatives and managers of the largest Russian blockchain companies, large companies interested in the development of blockchain technologies, government authorities, exchanges and banks, brokerage and investment companies, financial institutions and payment systems, integrators, developers, equipment and software manufacturers, modern technology companies, as well as blockchain specialists, private investors, lawyers, analysts and industry experts.
