After Mr. Adambekov's speech, the president provided positive feedback and stated that blockchain technology is of utmost importance for Kazakhstan.
"Kazakhstan is a blockchain friendly country. The Kazakh government is one of the first to announce plans of blockchain adoption in such fields as taxation, customs and cargo tracking. Our regional CEO at EBFG is one of the five finalists of the Presidential Youth Staff Reserve who was given the opportunity to speak at the conference. This shows our leadership and contribution in development in blockchain technology in Kazakhstan. EBFG has recently received a conditional FinTech License to operate a cryptocurrency exchange and provide custodian services under the brand of Eurasia International Blockchain eXchang ("EBX"). Our next step is to continue to finalize our system design of EBX and obtain approval from the government before commencing operations in a live environment and providing services to customers.
