Blockchain Deep Dive Week
Startup Lighthouse refers to the Baltics instead of a specific country or city as the region itself is a large interconnected hub with connections and networks which can be leveraged in Lithuania, Estonia or Latvia. The ecosystems in the Baltic states have been developing fast in recent years, with high investment in digital infrastructure leading to top accessibility rates and boosting some of the fastest internet speeds in the world. Estonia has the most startups per capita in Europe, with success stories including TransferWise, Skype, Vinted and Ask.fm.
Lithuania is at the forefront of the blockchain revolution with Lithuania-based projects attracting 10% of all global ICO investments. Successful ICO’s such as BitDegree, Monetha, Bankera, Lympo, WePower, carVertical are based here. 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.
This DDW is targeted at Blockchain startups looking to scale in the Baltic states.
