During the discussion panel about market making and data privacy regulations, the audience was especially interested in the report made by Belen Martin, Corporate & EU Data Privacy Lawyer at Lexley Worldwide. She spoke about data privacy and cryptocurrencies, particularly how GDPR impacts crypto.

Top tips from Belen for blockchain projects: avoid storing personal data using any means to anonymize data, collect data off-chain or in private permissioned blockchain networks and consider personal data carefully when connecting with public networks.

During “The cutting-edge blockchain use-cases” discussion panel, several startups made presentations about how they are trying to implement blockchain technologies in real life.

EduNode CEO, Lucas Gil Cantón, spoke about how cryptography can influence the EdTech sector and help to solve problems with the fake diplomas, the lack of skills validation and the high costs of education.
