Event Overview

In May, 2017, WannaCry affected organizations across the globe, including numerous hospitals. It led to work shut down at hospitals across the United Kingdom and affected hospitals in Canada and United States.

mCoin ( is the world’s first cryptocurrency accessible to 3 billion people without Internet. The official mCoin ICO launch will be on April 16th. The World Blockchain Forum is the biggest blockchain event held this year in Dubai.

The ongoing pre-ICO sale has already attracted participants from more than 30 countries. This is a very good sign for success in the upcoming ICO.

mCoin works with ONEm ( services making blockchain technology available on any mobile.

ONEm founded in 2012, developed and deployed a revolutionary mobile platform. The platform allowed mobiles without the internet to enjoy internet-like services. These applications solved everyday problems facing individuals and businesses. This creates a new opportunity to reach an untapped market with billions of people.

mCoin is unique. It reaches 5.8 billion people on mobiles of whom 3 billion people don’t have internet access. mCoin is secure because it is not on the internet creating an extra layer of security.

The demand for mCoin will rise due to mCoin’s novel mining concept. “Pseudo-mining” is a proof-of-work concept where anybody can earn mCoins through sponsored activities. These special purpose activities impact society in a positive way. Users can spend mCoins through ONEm’s Sweb, Market Place and mCatalogue applications.

To foster mCoins’ rapid growth, ONEm has signed telco agreements in more than 20 countries. This figure can double during the current year. Small and medium businesses can work with local mCoin partners. For the first time hundreds of millions of people worldwide can enjoy a digital currency. As a result, mCoin will increase in value where traditional cryptocurrencies can’t reach.

Christopher Richardson, CEO and Co-founder of ONEm stated. “It is exciting to see that mCoin’s pre-ICO has attracted so many participants. This is a good sign for the launch of our upcoming ICO on April 16 at The World Blockchain Forum in Dubai. We are looking forward to meeting current and new mCoin supporters.”

The 6th International Smart Grids and Cities Congress and Fair, which will be held with the support of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology, the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications as well as the Energy Market Regulatory Authority and in strategic partnership with ELDER (Association of Electricity Distribution System Operators) and GAZ-BIR (Natural Gas Distribution Companies Association), will open its doors at Istanbul Congress Center on April 25 and 26, 2018.

The 6th International Smart Grids and Cities Congress and Fair, which will be assembling the stakeholders of the energy industry, to which nearly 350 global corporations will attend as booth exhibitors, and of which the United Kingdom is a Country Partner, is expected to be attended by over 10 thousand industry representatives,experts and academicians from more than 50 countries.


Turkey’s current grid infrastructure, now, hardly meets the needs as it is based on the 90’s technology. Therefore, our country has been renovating the infrastructural systems, choosing the state-of-the-art technology, which is also preferred worldwide. The experts state that it is critically important throughout the transformation process that mutual communication between the supplier and the user should be ensured, the supply and consumption should be monitored by way of the integration of smart meters and monitoring systems to power and gas networks, and continuous, reliable and quality power transmission to the users should be assured. The transformation of currently existing systems into smart systems is considered essential in order to both enable excellent consumer satisfaction and prevent losses and inefficiency through the remote monitoring of grids.


The experts, who note that smart grids will contribute the most to the economy and the consumers, emphasize that reduction in the number and the duration of outages, savings in operational costs and integration to the grid of renewable energy resources, which account for a considerable portion within energy production, will also become more efficient by way of smart grids and smart systems.


The experts, who state those smart systems will also contribute to the protection of the environment, comment as follows; “A significant result of this will be experienced directly by the consumers. The quality of the power used will increase while energy procurement costs will drop. These systems will enable individuals not to remain solely as consumers but to generate power by way of the solar panels that could install on the roofs of their homes and contribute to the grids. This congress and fair, which is being held through the course of transformation to smart system of Turkey with a population of some 80 million people, where there are 35 million water subscribers, 35 million power subscribers and 10 million gas subscribers, will serve as an international platform, were exhibitors will be assembled with all stakeholders, have their inquiries addressed, learn about the latest developments in smart systems, witness model applications and determine their investment strategies.”
