Prague will host the largest conference devoted to blockchain

On May 19, the capital of the Czech Republic will host Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Prague – the event dedicated to the development of cryptocurrencies and blockchain.

Guests will meet supporters of a decentralized economy, successful blockchain developers and entrepreneurs and enjoy the exhibition of equipment for the industry.

Prague is one of the most important bitcoin centers in Europe. The city has around a hundred places which receive bitcoins (including only bitcoins without fiat currencies). Employees in such places often receive salary in cryptocurrencies and that’s why they are interested in attracting more clients.

A bitcoin owner can have a lunch, stay in a hotel and pay for educational and domestic services in Prague. A number of shops will accept a bitcoin card alongside with a traditional currency.

Implementation of contactless chips which can also be used for bitcoin transactions is quite popular among citizens of the Czech Republic.

These and other issues will be discussed at the conference.

Topics include the development of cryptocurrencies, blockchain in Govtech, blockchain services in Fintech as well as legal issues. Participants will study existing projects – from the idea to the moment of entering the market and monetization.
