Berlin has positioned itself as the place to be for entrepreneurs, investors, and innovators of all kinds. It is a place where a startup is founded every 20 minutes, where majority of startups eye global expansion, and 44% of founders are foreign-born.

Now, Berlin is also a place where blockchain technology is being shaped thanks to a notable grassroots community, which is growing quickly, and attracting more and more people with bold ideas, forming a multidisciplinary and cross-industry ecosystem — from crypto trading to giving refugees access to banking through blockchain.

As part of the European Commission’s Access2Europe endeavor, we have partnered up with Berlin’s hottest tech hubs and blockchain experts to provide a unique opportunity for 15 international blockchain startups to deep dive into blockchain Berlin-style during the 3 days of discovery.

Over the course of 3 days, we are going…

How is blockchain inflicting research? Danny Cabrera, a speaker at CUBE Tech Fair, gave us his feedback:

“Blockchain is giving various industries a tool for decentralized models and that’s an advantage when you’re talking about science. The reality is that scientific publications remain locked up behind the walls and databases of a handful of big publishers. Blockchain is giving people the ability to build decentralized models that’ll not only be more efficient but will make access to that data the baseline. The value that a company like Pfizer has today is basically a database of molecules and targets and how…


We asked Julie Maupin, one of our speakers at CUBE Tech Fair, whether Blockchain is Hype or Reality:

“For distributed ledger technologies to live up to their current hype, two things need to happen. First, innovators must learn to design for the actual environments in which their cool new DLT use cases will be implemented. This means taking the time to understand real-world infrastructure and connectivity constraints, regulatory requirements, and user experience considerations. No matter how cool your technology, these things will ultimately make the difference between a successfully implemented DLT solution and another meaningless press release. Second, governments and…

Counterfeiting is an old problem, one which has only become worse with the emergence of giant online retailers such as Amazon and Alibaba.

According to the United Nations, the counterfeit market is worth 250 billion US dollars a year and growing.

Consumers trust large brands, assuming that whatever they buy is indeed the product it claims to be. However, we’ve all unknowingly bought counterfeit products and unfortunately it’s probably happened more than once.

Counterfeiting presents a huge problem for brands, investors, and, of course, consumers. Our Ecosystem startup, ScanTrust, has developed the world’s first copy-proof QR code, which can be authenticated using a mobile phone and prevents the distribution of fake goods.

In November 2017, ScanTrust closed $4.2 million in Series A financing with the investment round joined by innogy Ventures (venture arm of innogy SE, one of Europe’s largest utility…
