In the social investment forum, Director of technology of the company Qiwi Alex Arkhipov reported that the group of Qiwi companies refused from implementation of the technology of the blockchain in its own processing.

Blockchain brings value when it unites a large number of participants,» — said Arkhipov.

In 2015, the company has applied to the Federal service for intellectual property (Rospatent) on registration of the trademark «Bigtrouble».
