Even in the crypto world, there are plenty of barriers when scaling. Not all regulators are friendly towards your technology, your ads are automatically blocked by the major platforms and it’s hard to stand up through the hype and noise.
If you think you’re ready – we’d challenge you to come to Vilnius to meet fellow pioneers and make the partnerships to take the next crucial steps. Startup Lighthouse is running a Deep Dive Week in Vilnius – run by Startup Division – with one focus: Blockchain.
Lithuania is at the forefront of the blockchain revolution with Lithuania-based projects attracting 10% of all global ICO investments. Being the EU’s only hub for the digital ledger it is a gateway for global blockchain industry.
Bank of Lithuania is the first to create and launch (in 2019) a regulatory and technological sandbox platform-service – LBChain – for domestic and foreign companies to develop and test their blockchain-based solutions.
Lithuania is home to well known FinTechs (e.g.: TransferGo, Revolut, InstaReM) and successful ICO’s: Monetha, Bankera, BitDegree, WePower, carVertical, Iungo Networks, Lympo and many more to come…
