Founded in 2015 the Ministry is the governmental agency, whose mission is to create the digital impulse for Poland’s development. Bitcoin and blockchain, along with the Internet of Things, have been assigned to the accelerating and revolutionary technologies to promote the development and progress and might cause the previously unknown risks. The seminar was to become the platform to exchange the expertise within this area in different countries, promote the new national and international technology initiatives, as well as support the influential dialogue with European commission and the government of Poland.
