Geneva Blockchain Congress
On January 21st, 2019, Palexpo SA – Geneva’s exhibition and convention centre – launched the Geneva Blockchain Congress. This high-level gathering addressed substantive issues related to the world of blockchain, such as legality, governance and ethics. By passing the perspectives of application of this next technology revolution from shadow to light (i.e.: from the laboratory to the market), the Geneva Annual Blockchain Congress helps to strengthen the region’s ecosystem at the political, academic and economic levels.
“ The next digital revolution is imminent. After the Internet, which profoundly transformed our societies, blockchain technology is poised to become one of the pillars of tomorrow’s economy. As the figurehead of ‘Crypto Lake’, the Canton of Geneva has already launched several pioneering projects, both internal and external, on the subject. It welcomes of the creation of the Geneva Annual Blockchain Congress, designed to reinforce existing local blockchain technologies and to promote the growth of a truly regional ‘Blockchain Valley’ ”, states Mr Pierre Maudet, Economic Councillor of State for Geneva.
