All those interested in blockchain and cryptocurrencies in terms of business should head to Intercontinental Malta on December 7.

Participants at the Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Malta will include entrepreneurs, investors, consultants and IT specialists working with blockchain and digital currencies.

Speakers of the conference are analysts of cryptocurrency markets, financial and legal experts, blockchain developers, representatives of start-ups and large companies that use blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and venture investors.

The organiser is Smile-Expo, the company that has organised more than 10 large blockchain events.

Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Malta is a part of the conference network around the world, including Moscow, Tallinn and Stockholm.

The key topic of the event will be legislation and regulation in the blockchain field. These issues will be also covered during a panel discussion, conducted by cryptocurrency expert Steve Tendon.

Other participants include GTG Advocates partner Ian Gauci, Ganado Advocates general partner Max Ganado, and managing partner at EY Central and South East Europe Ronald Attard.

Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference will be opened by Parliamentary Secretary Secretary Silvio Schembri who will speak about the national strategy of blockchain development in Malta.

The conference will also tackle DCO and smart contracts, the challenges of intellectual property, the decentralised economy and its global role.

The Maltese government was one of the first in Europe to announce the introduction of blockchain into state programmes through the Land and National Health registries.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said that digital currency should be introduced at the state and the European Union levels. But business representatives and investors still have a lot of questions about the new technology.
