“The World Digital Mining Summit brings together cryptocurrency miners and blockchain enthusiasts to connect, learn and build their network while exchanging face-to-face insights with industry leaders,” said Gadi Glikberg, VP of International Sales at Bitmain Technologies, “We are excited for what is shaping up to be the leading crypto mining event of 2018, held in the historic city of Tbilisi.”

As the second largest cryptocurrency mining country globally, the Republic of Georgia serves as the ideal backdrop for the World Digital Mining Summit. According to the World Bank, blockchain technologies are widely used in Georgia due to a supportive environment for the mining of cryptocurrencies and technology innovation. Underscoring this trend is the country’s use of blockchain to digitize and streamline public services.
