At the event there was also Mr. Giampaolo Lo Conte, entrepreneur and successful international trader who has always been attracted by technological innovations and he is attentive to the issues concerning the global economy. In his long career, Mr. Giampaolo Lo Conte has got to know and collaborate with the greatest figures of high finance and thanks to his representative offices located in the most important economic cities of the world such as Rome, London and New York, he is able to participate actively and assiduously to the most important international economic events. “For some months the focus on cryptocurrencies has grown – said Mr. Giampaolo Lo Conte in an interview published on the web – not just for financial reasons (the fluctuation of Bitcoin on the cryptocurrency markets was on the most important national newspapers, ed), but especially for technological reasons. The “blockchain” is a technological revolution, which I am following closely, because it is a new way of managing and securing digital data through the use of cryptography. The use of this technology will allow us to solve a real problem in the digital world and this will make IT environments even safer. I am convinced that cryptocurrencies are not a “mood of the moment”, but belong now to the global financial fabric”. The Italian trader, already present at the Crypto Conference in Moscow on 28 November, confirmed the importance to participate in such events, not only to “keep up with the times”, but to try to anticipate them and find new economic opportunities.
