Founder of Skype and LHV payment solutions to speak at blockchain conference in Tallinn
On March 9, 2017, Tallinn will host the biggest Estonian blockchain conference, bringing together banking sector representatives. They will share their experience of implementing the blockchain technology and will discuss benefits of decentralized services.
A key speaker on this topic will be Jüri Laur, a chief specialist in payment services of Estonian LHV bank. He became well-known in the industry while working for Skype, where he focused on optimizing payment solutions.
LHV is known far beyond Estonia as one of world’s first banks to turn attention to blockchain. Partnering with the range of startups in summer 2015, the bank has launched its own blockchain application called Cuber Wallet, a wallet for currency storage and safe money transfers. Everyone having accounts in LHV can download the application.
According to Jüri Laur, the development of your own blockchain-based products is an opportunity to understand better the potential of technology.
The speaker will tell why blockchain is advantageous for the banking sector and which tasks developers should solve on 9 March at Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Tallinn. According to organizers, conference participants will include representatives of Bitcoin Foundation, e-Residency, IBM, and Funderbeam.
