Romania Blockchain Summit is the largest Summit of the industry organized in South-Eastern Europe, bringing together the Romanian public sector, political decision-makers, developers, researchers, global entrepreneurs and leaders, and innovators from the blockchain industry.
To promote the benefits of blockchain technology and its use cases as one of the most important opportunities for achieving economic and social progress both at the level of Romania and at the level of the European Union.
“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.”
Minister for Communications and Information Society
“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
“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
“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
“Blockchain is more than just a technology; it is a disruptive philosophy that carries the seed for great social changes. After centuries of creating institutions to embody the various aspects of the social contract, blockchain allows us to rewrite it in a simpler, more elegant way, to shape a society centred around the citizen more than ever before. Yet to reach the mainstream, blockchain as a technology and business model must become interlaced with the very fibre of our present-day economic models, into a fine broidery of seemingly polar opposites that actually complement each other to create a hybrid system that is more efficient, more secure, more transparent and more humane than the traditional model. To foster such a change and to empower the betterment of the human society through technology is our vision at the Romanian Blockchain Association.”
Adrian Stratulat – Executive Manager
