“We’re proud that the The Europas has recognised our innovative data management project. Our partnership with BIK represents the start of a true revolution in information governance. Together we have shown that it is possible to move away from the constraints of closed central databases to a democratic blockchain-based Internet where every user will be able to control his or her identity, “ said Andrzej Horoszczak, CEO and Founder, Billon. “Our mission is to civilize blockchain. This is the true essence of any new technology. It needs to mature and stop being a toy or technological curiosity for programmers, and start solving real life problems. Billon is removing the barriers for the mass adoption of blockchain technology.”
