Romania Blockchain Summit is organized under the aegis of Romanian Ministry for Communications and Information Society.

“For Romania and for Romanian Government Blockchain is an extremely important topic when we speak about emergent technologies and the importance of their use in everyday life in the banking, transport, energy, insurance, courier postal services, or other activities.
Several European states and the European Commission have their eyes on blockchain as well.
The unique features of blockchain have the potential to change traditional processes across industries because of its decentralized character and the degree of security that cryptography offers, bringing social and economic benefits to countries where it is adopted.”

Alexandru Petrescu

Asociatia Blockchain Romania

“We stand at the precipice of great changes in the human society. Blockchain is not just a technology, it is a new way of connecting people, creating a radically new and innovative economy and society. And Romania, due to its unique advantages in human resources, IT tradition and infrastructure, cannot sit idle and watch. We must assume a bold position as pioneers and innovators, as regional leaders in the rising blockchain industry. To empower progress, we must stand together, with a united voice and communicate the advantages that blockchain technology brings to so many local industries. Our mission, at the Romanian Blockchain Association is to educate the public, to foster the development of a local blockchain community and to bring a voice in the dialogue with the regulators.”

Armand Domuța – President


Asociatia pentru Tehnologii Avansate

“Association for Advanced Technologies promotes the accelerated adoption of emerging technologies as Romania’s most important opportunity for rapid development and progress.
Association for Advanced Technologies (ATA) aims to implement advanced technologies in all areas of socio-economic activity in Romania, from medical to defense, from financial-banking to social assistance activities. In ATA’s vision, Romania has an extraordinary chance to rapid development of the economy and society if it succeeds in successfully implementing advanced technologies. Among them, the greatest potential for generating positive effects in society is the blockchain technology – which ATA aims to explain to everyone, to enhance the level of information/education of the public and to raise awareness of the positive effects that can be generated by it.
We synchronise nationally the global trends.”

Bogdan Almasi – Executive Director


Asociatia pentru Tehnologii Avansate

“The true potential of blockchain is the thing we value the most. DLT comes with a change of paradigm. We are switching from a centralized society to decentralization, from a centralized Internet to Internet 2.0. For the first time in tech history we have the chance to have more transparent, more secure and more efficient apps deployed on DLT infrastructure. Using the most fair algorithm developed until now, blockchain networks generate the closest to perfection consensus. Blockchain brings back the power to the user, it brings democracy on the web and it promises to make our lifes better. These are the reasons we are determined to strongly promote blockchain and its use cases until the mainstream adoption will be a real fact.”

Sergiu Draganus – Founder
