Kyiv Blockchain Week 2019 is about to take place in the capital of Ukraine from September 16 to September 22, for the first time in its history. This is an initiative that is promoted and popularized by the Blockchain Association of Ukraine. Kyiv Blockchain Week does not have any particular beneficiary, events are self-organized, which marks the main ecosystem approach. Events at the Kyiv Blockchain Week have an educational purpose and serve blockchain community and the industry by bringing new opportunities for cooperation and development.
“There are several goals for creating the Kyiv Blockchain Week initiative. First, we want to show the scale of the industry to a wide audience. Blockchain is not only about cryptocurrencies and trading, but it is also about social benefits, about the global financial system, it is about solving specific business problems. Secondly, we want to give more networking opportunities for interested people, ecosystem participants, and foreign guests – when the industry’s main events take place during the week, it’s more convenient to plan the schedule and, for example, come from abroad. Finally, it is about the brand of our country and the industry – strong developers, high-class specialists and high-quality initiatives,”- says Natalya Drik, the Executive Director of the Blockchain Association of Ukraine.
