Bitcoin Private team is going to host a meetup at San-Francisco with its community and some of the leaders of the cryptocurrency segment. The team would like to share its experience, expertise and knowledge on the blockchain privacy, its story of helping to adopt the blockchain mainstream. The event is focused on people who are either members of the ongoing blockchain project or those interested in the issues of privacy and mass adoption of the blockchain. The agenda also includes topics that are general to the industry.

The Bitcoin Private team (Founder & Lead Developer Rhett Creighton, Lead Wallet Developer & Senior Blockchain Developer Jon Layton, Adoption & Inclusion Lead Nika Dahlbacka, etc.) will also participate at the event to discuss the matters of potential partnership with BTCP and even mere contribution to the open source community of the project.

We’re making this event a bit more casual than our previous ones so that we can keep the conversations more casual and open ended, yet maintaining high quality.

South Korea to Invest $1B in Blockchain Startups

Blockchain is a revolutionary technology and an integral component of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, local authorities believe
19 February 2019   93

Until 2022, Seoul authorities are investing 1.2 trillion South Korean won ($ 1.07 billion) in fintech startups working with distributed ledger technology. This is reported by CoinDesk.

Funds will be allocated for the development of new technologies through the Seoul Innovation Growth Fund, created last year by local authorities. The foundation will support startups working on various solutions, including those that are in the early stages.

In the first half of this year, the Fund will allocate 13.25 billion won ($ 11.75 million) and 8.4 billion won ($ 7.45 million) in the second half of 2019. For the Korean authorities, the blockchain is a revolutionary technology and an integral component of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The officials also noted that the average investment per start-up at an early stage of development in South Korea is almost seven times lower than, for example, in Silicon Valley.

Last fall, Seoul authorities submitted a five-year development plan for the blockchain industry.
