In Colombia the Kickico team joined the discussion on the future of the blockchain and cryptoindustry.
An important event of the international blockchain congress is a conference in the capital of Colombia, Bogota. Co-founder of Kickico Alexandr Petrov, CEO of Synergy Crypto Adviser, ambassador of NEM for Latin America Pedro Gutierrez, ambassador of NEM for Colombia Rafael Torres and founder of Menaskop exchange Vladimir Popov made their speeches.
Why Colombia needs blockchain?
Pedro Gutierrez: — Blockchain is a revolutionary technology and, although the process of its adoption and implementation is not easy, the governments of different countries realize the importance of the detachment. We teach people financial and cryptoliteracy so that they do not lose money in financial pyramids and scam projects. In one of the Colombian departments Antioquia, we soon will open educational courses by agreement with the government.
Rafael Torres: — Blockchain is needed in the financial sector, business management, to protect data and decentralized autonomous organizations. Blockchain will help the notary to be convinced of the reliability of the diploma or the certificate, to suppliers of emeralds to be protected from fakes, and to the government of Colombia to spend the transparent, fair elections.
What are the prospects for the blockchain?
Vladimir Popov: — The cryptoindustry is developing at a rapid pace. Here are the main development directions: block and smart contracts, scavenging and atomic processing, robotization, Internet of things, virtual and augmented reality. The Colombian cryptocommunity have resources for development in any of these areas.
Alexander Petrov: — The blockchain industry is a new, unregulated area. A huge ecosystem is born and developed before our very eyes, and everyone can contribute to its development. Now governments often decide first to ban everything, and then, perhaps, gradually to resolve, and this is normal.
Head of the Kickico branch in Latin America Sasha Ivanova and editor, content marketing specialist KICKICO Evgenia Vorontsova, talked about the marketing of ICO.
Where does the preparation for ICO begin?
Sasha Ivanova: — Carefully think through the technical and organizational parts of the project, the legal basis, and marketing campaign. Do not get carried away with loud statements and colorful presentations: investors need facts.
Where to publish articles about the project?
Evgenia Vorontsova: — Choose specialized media, interested in your project. To do this, you need to understand your target audience well. Forbes has more readers looking for economic articles, and Techcrunch is more technology-oriented. Write useful articles: this way they will attract readers long after the end of the ICO.
What about the ban on advertising ICO and cryptocurrency?
Evgenia Vorontsova: — Look for alternative sources of publications, build business relations with opinion leaders.
Sasha Ivanova: — Pay attention to Steemit: there is an active community there, and users can be rewarded for useful posts and voices given to these posts.
