This week, they have already held a workshop at the University of Innopolis and plan to hold their first Hackathon on September 17-18.

During the workshop on September 2, speakers talked about the use cases of Blockchain technologies and how they affect the development of the banking sector.

The World’s top FinTech expert, Chris Skinner, who is also CEO at and Chairman of the Financial Services Club, participated in the workshop. According to him, banks and financial authorities still have strong positions and are holding back initiatives fr om young startups. However, in reality, regulation has forced these startups to not really compete, but work together with banks and financial authorities.
