    Blockchain - reinventing the global equity market

    Sascha Ragtschaa, CEO Chainium

    We are asking society a big question. If we had our time again, would we create the equity market in the same way? Would we create a system which allows investment in just 1% of the world’s companies? Would we give middlemen such as banks and brokers the power to control access? Would we create a system which excludes billions of people from using it? The answer is surely no. Blockchain technology has allowed us to reinvent the way the world raises capital and buys and sells shares. Join Chainium to hear more.

    Market.space. More than a merely decentralized blockchain-based service for data storage and transfer

    Ivan Kurnavin, Community Manager, Market.space

    Market.space is a decentralized self-regulatory system for data storage, transmission and direct content distribution. It performs several non-standard functions which make it stand out from the likes:

    ♦ As a host aggregator, Market.space allows professional storage providers and data centers to thrive on leasing the unused storage capacities
    ♦ The system works as a marketplace, without imposed plans or transaction fees, which means affordable pricing
    ♦ With Market.space, authentic content can be distributed seamlessly and securely bypassing intermediaries and their fees. This function is intrinsically embedded in the system architecture while the competitors would need centralization or additional apps for it
