Blockchain Week Rome, with the institutional support of MiSe, CONSOB and SIAE, the first event in Italy dedicated to the world of cryptocurrencies ended on Sunday 30 June 2019.
The idea of the Blockchain Week Rome was born at the beginning of the year with the aim of filling the gap, both formative and informative, existing in the Italian territory (hashtag # bwr19)
