Ukrainian forum for Internet professionals is a social movement created by a group of enthusiasts. It is dedicated to the problems of development of the Internet, and covers the entire spectrum of related issues.

In 2009 the idea was so urgent that more than 1,000 people visited our event.

Blockchain

This year is definitely the year of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. There is a lot of noise, but
there is no much of the real expertise. On iForum we will fix it. This Stream will consist of 3 parts:

  • Blockchain technology in the products

There are products in which the blockchain gives a real advantage, and there are those where
this technology is far-fetched, makes it more complicated to develop and use the product. We’ll
try to figure out where the blockchain technology is applicable.

  • Cryptocurrency

The role of cryptocurrencies in the modern economy. The use of cryptocurrencies for payment
transactions. Cryptocurrencies as a tool for savings and investment. In this section, we will also
discuss trading and mining.

  • ICO

A new tool for raising capital, which in 2017 experienced explosive growth. We’ll talk about the
possibilities of ICO and the risks it brings to projects. Let’s talk about the experience of Ukrainian
projects. And, of course, we can not avoid a glance from investors who invest in such projects.
