We are the champions! The first place on Blockshow Competition in Switzerland by Cointelegraph.
This is not a secret that Switzerland is the country of banking, high technologies and money.
Swiss doesn’t only have a good chocolate and Alps, but also a friendly regulatory body that provides comfort services to citizens and sets a good environment for technological progress.
This country is one of the pioneers of Blockchain & Fintech, home for Crypto Valley and one of the strongest Blockchain ecosystems of the world.
Our team is really glad to have come here and join some impressive events of this month!
First Part of our Swiss Journey — Zurich
April, 24 — Cointelegraph organized BlockShow Meetup in Zurich.

BlockShow team says their meetup in Zurich was the biggest meetup of BlockShow Europe.
Kraftwerk hall was full of startup projects, investors, business owners, Blockchain & Bitcoin enthusiasts, and pretty much anyone who shares interest in Blockchain, cryptocurrencies and investments.
The main part was opened by Addy Crezee & Olga Feldmeier, who discussed the burning issue of the Blockchain regulatory environment in Switzerland.
We have prepared a record of that discussion for you:
- How Swiss and US Securities Law Treat Crypto: Insights from FINMA and SEC
- Bytom: Transfer Assets from Atomic World to Byte World
- Being Professional in the Crypto Space: Keeping Assets Safe & Addressing Current Issues
- Social Value through Blockchain: How DLT is Related to Economic Inclusion
- Unlock Trillion Dollars Market in Crypto Wealth Management: Insights from Bankorus
- How to Raise Capital for Your Blockchain Startup? Q&A with Carefully Selected Startups
The sweetest part of the event was the startup competition with carefully selected projects.
Every project had 3 minutes for presentation and 2 minutes for Q&A.
Jev Veinstein’s speech was especially good as he pitched the audience all the juicy ENQ concepts. It made us the winners of Startup Competition!
1. ENQ — 44 votes
2. Alethena — about 20 votes
3. SwissRealCoin — 37 votes
Addy Crezee says:
“Enecuum was selected by the BlockShow community as the winner of our startup competition in Zurich, and I’m glad to see promising projects joining the race. Good luck, and we hope Enecuum will take off fast and help businesses integrate Blockchain globally.”
Second Part of our Swiss Journey — Zug
Next, we went to Zug to visit the Crypto Valley Blockchain Summit.
Another year — and blockchain continues to grow and expand around the world, changing businesses and spurring innovations. The 2-nd Blockchain Summit, Crypto Valley, focused on the intersection of enterprise and startup approaches to building new things with the distributed ledger technology.

The main idea going through all panel discussions is that we still have no clearly defined regulations for blockchain technology and no education system for personal of banks.
Let’s talking about how to move to a more decentralized structure in governance.
We’ve met a few interesting thoughts in this case.
Eva A. KAILI, Member of the European Parliament:
“People don’t really like control. They need easier, cheaper systems. Decentralization has a big potential.
Blockchain is an infrastructure. You can use it in positive way or not. It all depends… If you use it to protect citizens, it is a better solution that can change everything.”
Second important idea is banking education.
Blockchain innovations is still very difficult for implementing that in our daily life. The most part of people don’t understand technology including bank employees.
Jan Brzezek thinks that trust of citizens is the most important thing. People trusts banks. That’s why banks could be a bridge between people and Blockchain with all its advantages.
A private banker, Konrad Hummler, made a joke about this situation: “People will learn when they lose their money.”
Heinz Tännler, Councillor of Canton of Zug:
“Switzerland is a pioneer of blockchain technologies. We need clear legal regulations. We need legitimacy of the technology. Politics is responsible. Current needs are secure and private transactions, rapid access to infrastructure.”
ENQ team believe that governments and businesses will start the implementation of blockchain technologies and will show a good example of using all features of decentralized systems in the near future. And we will try to help in this way.
Next point of our roadshow is a Luxembourg. We are going to Arch Summit at 3d & 4th May.
Keep on touch.
