Getting smart off the blockchain

For businesses to work, contracts are key. They ensure terms are met and work is delivered. However, currently they are based purely on trust, with a lack of real guarantees that conditions will be met.

The introduction of smart contracts is bringing certainty to this environment. But while a great tool, they are not yet accessible to those with limited understanding. With no programming knowledge, enacting smart contracts is almost impossible. So how can businesses get the full benefits?

Waves CEO Sasha Ivanov will once again be on hand to introduce innovative solutions and discuss the challenges and advantages of smart contracts to drive business value. He will also tell us about Waves' latest developments in the field and outline how they can help us create new efficiencies and avenues for profit.

Join this Waves community meetup to enrich your knowledge, network and explore partnership opportunities.
From Russia with love
Moscow is our next stop on the Summer Roadshow. As one of the most populated cities in the world, there’s no better place to talk about blockchain and the people.
