"We're excited to be a part of the Block Forum event here in Vilnius, the quality of speakers and networking opportunities will be great for the blockchain community. International guests will get to see first hand the fintech and blockchain innovation on show here in Lithuania," says Egle Nemeikstyte, CEO of Blockchain Centre Vilnius.
Lithuania made headlines at the start of 2018 when it became the global no.1, in terms of money per capita raised for blockchain projects in 2017. Block Forum organisers say Lithuania is in a unique situation in history as it can become the epicentre of blockchain activity in North East Europe.
Block Forum is co-organized by Startup Division and Civitta in partnership in Blockchain Centre Vilnius. The event is supported by Startup Europe, European Commission’s department aimed at acceleration of startup ecosystem.
