Sam Lee, founder and CEO at Blockchain global:

We see Russia plays a key role in the global technology space. I’m very much amazed on how advanced and how much the blockchain is being embraced by organizations and government in this country. And therefore, due to high level of support blockchain technology will have a great chance to rise.

Blockchain global has been cooperating with governments all over the world to discover what the potential can this technology bring. By working together as a technology provider we look forward to help government be able to upgrade the internal processes and solutions so that ultimately give benefits to citizens.

We believe in community because everything starts with a group of people who share the same goals, inspirations and beliefs. And when we have a community of passionate like minded people, all championing in this technology, we believe that we all voices will be heard around the world.

Adam Barker, Chief Strategy officer at Diginex:

I’m very excited to sign the partnership. In Russia the Blockchain is such a high priority, I see. What we are looking to do here is to find partnerships with local companies here, maybe work with the government here, and see if we can do some common share out of this. The second thing is investments. So we looking for investing in ICOs, we looking for investing in start-ups. I think we should definitely open office here in Moscow. Everyone is to cooperate because it’s a global economy. Token economy is real and in 5 or 10 years time we will see every company issuing tokens. This is the way business will be done in short time future.We believe in a technology tokenised economy.
