September 26 – 5 days to go!

There is no stopping the strides of Blockchain, Smart Contracts and Virtual Currencies, yet a great deal of spadework still needs to be done (particularly in staving off cyber criminals) before a full package of benefits becomes a reality. Nevertheless, visionaries like Alexander Varvarenko, owner and CEO of VARAMAR Group – the first shipping company to introduce and use Bitcoin in exchange for transportation is already showing tomorrow’s technology today. He has also succeeded in automating and digitalizing dry-bulk, wet-bulk and heavy cargo and is now intent on integrating Blockchain and introducing crypto-currency exchange in sea-freight. As a key speaker, Varvarenko will give his insight into how to seize the moment while legal experts including Christos Efthymiopoulos, analyst for the Malta Financial Service Authority’s Fintech and Virtual Currencies team, will highlight the legal issues involved.
