Vladislav Martynov was a manager, entrepreneur, investor, and two years ago he became a blockbuster enthusiast and adviser to the Ethereum Foundation Vitalik Buterin.
Martynov first learned about the blockade from Buterin the elder in 2010: "He told me on the example of the technology of file sharing (torrents) explained how the peer-to-peer payment system bitcoin works through a decentralized distributed network of computers." Vitalik also learned about bitkoin from his father and decided that the security, reliability and transparency of the technology of this crypto currency can be used not only for payments or money transfers. In 2013, Vitalik published the "white book" Ethereum, in 2014 held the ICO and the launch of this blockbuster platform. The rest is legend.
After the call to Vitalik in 2015, Martynov began to work as an adviser to the Ethereum Foundation and after that "became more aware that this was an explosive technology", the topic of the blockade captured him completely. "I saw unique opportunities for Russia, I realized that the emergence of this technology makes it possible for our country to make an economic and technological breakthrough and ensure a dignified future," says Martynov. In the spring of 2016 he organized Vitalik Buterin's visit to Moscow to meet with the Russian blockbuster community. This year, Vitalik came to Russia again, this time meeting with Vladimir Putin: Buterin told him about the blockade, crypto-currencies and the possibility of using these technologies in Russia. The president "supported the idea of establishing business contacts with potential Russian partners," said his spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
Not that the meeting between Putin and Putin had an instant magical effect, but to perceive this technology in Russia have become much more serious. In addition, the blockbuster has always had loyal supporters among the major officials and businessmen. The government is studying everything related to the use of blocking technology "in the state administration, health care, and in a number of other sectors," said Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich in an interview with the portal Banki.ru in September 2017-th. The first deputy prime minister Igor Shuvalov, the president of the Savings Bank German Gref, the head of the Federal Tax Service Mikhail Mishustin publicly supported the idea of implementing blocking in various spheres of economy. Martynov himself is engaged in the implementation of the detachment in real life: together with the father and son of the Buters, they created the investment fund L4 Venture (formerly BlockGeeks Lab), which is invested in block-start-ups. "We find small teams or even ideas and invest in them," says Martynov. So far, there are very few projects to work on detachment, Dmitri Buterin complains: "While everyone has promised golden mountains, they collected a lot of money, and now they think." But this is a normal process - the technology is young, and it has a great future.
"When choosing projects, I always relied on my emotional motivation. It is important for me that people in Russia live in a high-tech country, "says Martynov. "And I tried to prove that we have talented guys who know how to create and manage international high-tech projects."
