“The Blockchance Conference 2019 in the Chamber of Commerce brings the international blockchain industry to Hamburg. I am delighted to be opening the event as patron in order to present our Hanseatic city to the world as a digital and innovation location”.
One of the key topics of the BLOCKCHANCE Conference 2019 will be security through the use of decentralised, globally networked database technology in IT and telecommunications, law and politics, trade, logistics and finance.
