Fabian Picardo, Chief Minister of Gibraltar kicking off the event
Gibraltar is one of the leading Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) jurisdictions in the world. It is the only jurisdiction in the world introducing a regulatory framework for token sales and with a fully operational DLT regulator.
Fabian Picardo, Chief Minister of Gibraltar, believes that regulation is without a doubt the future of Tokenomics “Gibraltar is the leader providing investors, operators, and customers the certainty they require.” he said during the opening of the Forum. Albert Isola, Minister of Commerce of the Government of Gibraltar, also spoke during the event.
Following the opening of the Forum, Dr. Wulf Kall, Co-Founder & CEO of Semada.io, addressed different topics of the Blockchain from Bitcoin to ‘Stable-Coins’. According to Dr. Wulf “Before we see mainstream adoption, Blockchain has to work flawlessly, embedded into everyday products and services without the user realizing he is using it, more or less like an Apple product” he also stated that before going further into adoption 3 things need to be solved first he calls it the ‘Blockchain Trilemma’ “nobody has created a Blockchain that is secure, scalable, and decentralized. Usually, projects are compromising one of the three”
