Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Heads to Belarus

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It won’t come as much of a surprise, but Smile-Expo is organizing yet another of its wildly successful Blockchain & Bitcoin conferences in Belarus. This time around it’s focusing on the legal aspects of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, as well as how to successfully launch an ICO. It’s only the second time that Smile-Expo has held the Blockchain & Bitcoin conference and it’s expected to be an event that will make a real impact. Those within the iGaming industry might just be paying particular attention, with new regulations set to be a lead topic of discussion.

The Implications

Belarus is currently well into the process of legalizing online gambling, meaning virtual casino operators – such as BitStarz – can start looking at operating in the country. This new legislation combined with the Blockchain & Bitcoin conference focusing on the legal side of the industry could herald a new dawn for online casinos. With this new-found legal knowledge of the industry, Belarus could set itself apart as a leading blockchain and cryptocurrency casino nation, giving online casinos another European country to potentially call home!

The Speakers

As with every blockchain conference around the globe, this event is jam-packed with knowledgeable speakers. These leading names will certainly help attendees understand every aspect of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies from a legal and regulation standpoint. Artur Kuczmowski will be discussing how to combat money laundering on the cryptocurrency market – a very hot topic in the crypto space right now and especially in the iGaming industry. Dmitry Machikhin will be talking about ICOs from a legal standpoint and Serhii Bondarenko will be revealing new methods of loyalty management. There are many more speakers attending the Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference in Belarus, so hold onto your hats for this all thrills conference.

Ideal for Russian Blockchain Enthusiasts

Unfortunately, for all English speaking blockchain enthusiasts, this conference is all in Russian. However, it will provide an excellent platform for the Russian crypto industry to get involved with creating new regulations and laws to help drive the industry forward. There are already a number of companies in Russia looking to use blockchain technology, including S7 Airlines and Gazprom Neft. The pair recently teamed up to create a blockchain solution for aircraft refueling.
Blockchain technology is certainly seen as the future of most industries. However, the iGaming industry is already using blockchain technology to ensure games are provably fair, meaning that players can verify that the cards aren’t stacked against them. Provably fair online casinos are soaring in popularity and thanks to blockchain technology, punters know that the house doesn’t always win.
