Today almost everyone has heard that “crypto is the future”. Bitcoin, blockchain, cryptocurrencies have become modern buzzwords, and even couch analysts make bold forecasts about crypto disrupting the finance system.

But what's coming next?
How many people are really using the technology?
What is the legal status of crypto?
What is so cool about smart contracts?

Tuesday evening we will be joined by the team of Byteball, one of the first cryptocurrencies based on DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph), and experts from Telefónica and Alfa Blockchain Consulting to find the answers to these questions.

DAG projects are often referred to as “the Next generation blockchains¨, they solve many issues of the first two generations such as scalability, transaction speed, energy costs, etc. What opportunities it reveals will be the focus of our discussion.

We are also going to talk about the latest legal developments in the field of cryptocurrencies and the ICO market.

All speakers are experts in their field and will be available for questions after the event. We look forward to seeing you there and discussing the future of blockchain! Don´t miss it!
