The second Smile-Expo event in Estonia: Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Tallinn

Our second conference on blockchain and cryptocurrencies in Estonia, Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Tallinn, took place on March 22. Judging by the number of participants and their involvement in the process, the topic of digital assets and decentralized technologies remains relevant in Estonia.

Key Speakers and Topics

Experts from Europe, Asia and the USA: specialists in the development, investment, marketing of projects, blockchain lawyers, as well as top managers of successful startups were among speakers of the conference.

Presentations were divided into four blocks:

• Cryptocurrency and blockchain in business.

• Technical reports.

Stefano Virgilli, CMO at Copernicus Gold, devoted his presentation to mining and blockchain. And Joshua Scigala (the head of the exchange where you can buy both digital assets and precious metals) expressed his opinion about whether it is possible to combine gold and cryptocurrencies.

Aleksander Tsoganov and Heikki Kolk from the IT company Catapult Labs talked about an interesting case. They explained in detail how to tokenize electricity and build a scalable electricity management blockchain-based system.
