I am the co-founder and CEO of the world’s leading Blockchain technology company — The BitFury Group. Everywhere I go — from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to meetings with top public policy influencers — I am asked to explain what Bitcoin is, what the Blockchain is, what the Bitcoin Blockchain is and — most importantly — why it matters.
