The general director of Yugra’s development fund has entered with a pact by joining hands with blockchain startup Universa. The latter will develop the blockchain system. The info about the system comes from a local popular media agency.
The upcoming blockchain will focus on the design and promotion of tourism facilities in the region. Besides, it will monitor the activities of the firms that are active in the tourism business.
