This year, Blockchain Week kicked off with a happy hour at Slate, a swanky lounge in the heart of Manhattan. It had a very special speaker in the form of Peter Borovykh, a known personality and an expert in the blockchain space.

The event had over 200 guests on hand ready to network, exchange ideas and to fuel excitement about Blockchain Week happenings. There were industry veterans, enthusiasts, startups and large corporations such as IBM in the mix.

Peter Borovykh co-founder and CIO of RoninAi, was invited to be the guest speaker at the event and announced Ronin’s new product, “Ai Execution Box” and it’s upcoming release.

The use of the new product is surprisingly simple. In Peter words  “Trading cryptocurrency has never been easy, and no one can be awake 24/7. With RoninAi box, you no longer have to awake at 3am or interrupt your meeting with boss. With execution box you can, connect it to Wi-Fi , plug it in, choose your trading strategy and your risk preference, connect to exchange and Ai will take it from there..”

Infact, in recent news, RoninAi was featured as the spotlight project in collaboration with a BeQuant, a crypto exchange on the future developments in the crypto trading space.

“In the cryptocurrency space, there is constant evolution and change, Bequant is actively involved in pursuing innovative ways for traders and institutions to interact with cryptocurrency. Our partnership with RoninAi is the next stop to empower crypto community and to be on the forefront of innovation.
