Event Overview

For many people, Blockchain has been synonymous with Bitcoin. Although bitcoins were one of the primary reasons for creation of blockchains. There have been a lot of developments in this technology and now, this technology has the potential to impact and boost operational efficiencies of large number of organizations across the globe. While the financial services may be at the forefront of these changes. This opportunity has presented itself with increased urgency across a wide range of sectors. Such as government and ministries, advertising, hospitality, health care, energy, food and agriculture—if there’s a business there’s a transaction, and wherever there’s a transaction there is an opportunity for blockchain.

As blockchain makes considerable forays into financial services pioneers are beginning to recognize the equally big opportunities it offers in many other areas such as energy, transportation, health care, supply chain, real estate, manufacturing and so on.
However, many of the industries players are working in an uncoordinated or fragmented manner. This event will bring together the key stakeholders working in diverse fields, creating an exciting cross- industry pollination of ideas and approaches that will yield new insights and explore even more new opportunities for growth and more importantly help in shaping the future blockchain technology policies for the European organizations.

The main goal of this forum is to create the more accessible and a much more diverse, policy-oriented platform where business and government leaders can learn how blockchain could impact their organizations and how they can seize the opportunity to reap the maximum benefits this budding technology has to offer.

Hence, we at TraiCon will be hosting the “World BlockChain Congress–Sweden 2018” scheduled to take place on 31st October & 1st November 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden. This two day summit is an educative platform comprising of both local and international case study presentations, highly interactive panel discussions and networking sessions.

We request all the key government sector stake holders, private sector stake holders and solution providers to support us and actively participate in this summit which focuses on the implementation of Blockchains to improve efficiency of services and boost the economy of the country.

Why Sweden?

  • Sweden is well known all around the world not only for its beautiful landscapes but also for its high number of cashless transactions. The country is moving into an economy where cash payments will become obsolete. Some studies circulating during the last days say that Sweden could be the perfect country to launch a cryptocurrency and the main is reason for this is because of the low cash usage rate that the country has.

  • As stated by the top researchers Sweden could be the first country to issue its own cryptocurrency and the main reason of this possibility is the low amount of cash used to perform transactions. As, most of the transactions in Sweden are performed with different electronic payments and cash is highly discouraged as a means of payment.

  • The Swedish Central Bank could take the leading role and issue a digital currency to be used by the Swedish Population. The recent studies state “e-krona” to the electronic version of the currency of Sweden. It would be important to distinguish whether the virtual currency will be a cryptocurrency or not. “A Central Bank Cryptocurrency would use blockchain technology, whereas a non-blockchain solution could be used to make the e-Krona a ‘deposited currency account’.”

  • These are two the possible ways in which a centrally issued digital currency could work. According to the recent reports Sweden’s Central Bank, one possibility is based on value, and the other is on a register system where in the option based on value ‘would be more like cash is at present with value being stored on an app or the card rather than having it on a central database.’

  • The second option would be much more complex. But, it could also make the framework easier to expand and developing the same over time. In addition to it, the currency would be likely to require the use of Blockchain technology.

  • Also, Lantmäteriet, the land registry of Sweden, officially has already started to utilize Blockchain technology to register land and properties and since early 2017, various countries including Brazil have begun to utilize Blockchain technology to facilitate the ownership of land and properties in a decentralized, transparent and immutable network. In a recent interview it was also revealed that the Swedish land registry has been actively investing in Blockchain technology and developing a proof-of-concept Blockchain platform since 2016.In March of this year, Lantmäteriet completed the initial phase of trials of its Blockchain-based land and properties registry platform.
