Bitfury hosts Blockchain Global Summit 2018 in Morocco

The Bitfuty Group’s annual Blockchain Summit is currently taking place at Sir Richard Brandson’s Kasbah Tamadot hotel in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The event is organized in partnership with Bill Tai and ACTAI Global.

This year’s focus is that of the promising ways which blockchain technology can bring positive change to Africa and the Middle East, both these regions being cradles of innovation, home to communities with the ambition and perspective to solve some of the oldest (and newest) challenges facing our world today.

“It is clear that our world (and our sector) is at a crossroads. We are living in a time when nations are turning inwards and tending towards isolationism; a world where people uprooted from their homes undertake often-treacherous journeys to seek safety; and where citizens cannot trust the basic security of nearly any digital system. This problem touches every sector and crosses every border.

That is why Bitfury, along with ACTAI Global, created the Blockchain Summit. Working together, we have one goal — to bring global leaders from every sector to the table to speak openly about our greatest challenges and take meaningful steps to fix them. We think blockchain technology is a crucial part of that story. Our guests spend nearly a week in intense conversation and panels digging into the different aspects of blockchain and crypto technologies, and we drive them to pursue outcomes and partnerships that affect lasting change. Our summits have fostered a strong network of allies and friends, with connections that transcend time zones and borders. We have seen some amazing collaborations, including the creation of the Blockchain Alliance and the Global Blockchain Business Council,” – Valery Vavilov, CEO of the Bitfury Group, stated.
