27 January 2017 we awarded the BTCX Great BlockTech award for the third time, at a ceremony in Epicenter Stockholm.
The event was sponsored by Epicenter, EY and Miltton Labs PR.
The ceremony was opened by BTCX Head of Marketing Joakim Herlin. He was followed by BTCX CEO Christian Ander and from EY came Henrik Hilbert to talk about how EY are into blocktech.
Deputy Governor of the Swedish Central Bank, Cecilia Skingsley, had only nice words to say about Stockholm as a fintech hub and pointed out that the Swedish Central Bank has certainly been an early adopter of innovations earlier in its 350-year history, and therefore obviously have a sight set on crypto currencies.
