A busy week, among other things, has also brought us, pleasant acquaintances. CEO of 482.solutions Roman Kravchenko attended a reception at the Swiss Embassy in Ukraine, organized by Distributed Lab for guest speakers of BlockchainUA.

The meeting started in a friendly atmosphere and introduced Claude Wild, Swiss Ambassador to Ukraine, Permanent Representative of the Confederation at the OSCE and the UN.

The Ambassador toured the blockchain ecosystem of Switzerland and introduced the guests to the opportunities and benefits of launching innovative projects. The meeting was a lively discussion on the future of financial and banking systems and the impact of the distributed paradigm and blockchain technology on their evolution.

This is another important indicator of the prospects of P2P architecture in the transformation of traditional approaches and systems.
