We can think of Blockchain as a registry that records all the Bitcoin operations performed on Bitcoin. The Blockchain system provides a reliable environment for its users to ensure smooth process operation in digital contexts. We anticipate that this system will be used actively in public institutions and organizations, in all banks and even in voting systems in the coming years. As the association, we have set out with the aim of promoting this system to Turkey and to spread its usage. As a part of this goal, we will give a detailed demonstration of the Blockchain system at the Blockchain Summit Istanbul to discuss how Blockchain technology is used in the world and what can be done in Turkey in this process. As the association, we achieve happiness to organize such a summit for the first time in Turkey. We look forward to all our technology companies, anyone wondering about Blockchain and desiring to have more information”.
