Oxygen CEO Alex Grebnev was one of the speakers at The BlockShow Europe, which took place in Berlin on 28-29 May. He participated in the main stage panel discussion dedicated to government blockchain initiatives within EU and beyond.  

Panel was moderated by Naeem Aslam, Chief Market Analyst at ThinkMarkets. Mr. Grebnev was speaking alongside VP Capital founder Viktor Prokopenya, Webit.Foundation executive chairman Plamen Russev, Liberland president Vít Jedlička, and PhD researcher of the blockchain, e-governance and e-democracy Oleksii Konashevych. 

Speaking about the importance of government regulation, Grebnev said: “There is a lot of value that regulation can add to the process in terms of resilience, setting standards, client expectations and much more. We’ve picked Gibraltar jurisdiction for three reasons: they look at things with the understanding that no blockchain business is the same, their authorisation process is clear and transparent with defined SLAs with quick 3-month turnaround time, principles based approach.»
