And it’s no surprise! We do remember all the words that president Vladimir Putin said about digitalization of economy. The organizers and experts of the contest were repeatedly reminded that blockchain projects are currently the most interesting ones.

“Blockchain is the imperative of the digital economy!” These are the words that the audience heard before the award, the person who said them was Arseniy Scheltsin, the head of the IRI’s partnership activities. During the event everyone, the jury, the experts, the participants, agreed on one thing — there’s no future without blockchain. 
ICOs in 2017 became something new and amazing, bringing enormous experience to people from different spheres. And the most important thing is that Russian companies played the leading role in this innovations mainstream.

During the award ceremony it was said that Russian projects raised way more money than the projects of Silicon Valley! 
Vyacheslav Sorokin, FinShi Capital’s Partner, presented the jury with the topic “Venture funds availability for private investors with the help of ICO”.
