Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev and his stance toward blockchain technology
A venture investor, well-known innovator and major businessman Rakishev Kenes (Kenges) told us a little about the near future of the blockchain.

Blockchain not only has a future, but it is at arm's length and only worth reaching out to, considers Kenges (Kenes) Rakishev. On the eve of it became known that the chairman of the Board of Directors of Sirin labs Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev in a recent interview he said that as a private person he invested in Ethereum and SRN tokens.

"At Sirin Labs, we have created the world's first FINNEY cryptosmartphone the world's first blockchain smartphone that works not only as a wallet for long-term storage and transactions with cryptocurrency, but also provides a secure way to communicate through the use of distributed databases. Here are all my currencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, SRN. I can pay with it, " Kenes Rakishev said.

At the same time, Rakishev admitted that investments in cryptocurrency have not yet fully justified themselves, but significant progress has been made in this direction. "We have created a product - a phone with a wallet for cryptocurrencies. We conducted an ICO, raised $ 153 million one of the largest ICOs in history-and received a competitive product. We even presented it at the MWC Barcelona exhibition. The brand's ambassadors are the boxer Gennady Golovkin and the footballer Leo Messi, " Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev summed up.

It is worth recalling that Samsung went in the footsteps of Sirin Labs. The Swiss-Israeli company Sirin Labs has improved the capabilities of the built-in wallet. They will become available to users after updating the FINNEY Wallet app.

Now users of the FINNEY crypto smartphone will be able to purchase digital coins using a credit card directly through their gadget. This was reported to RBC-Crypto by Kenes Rakishev, a representative of Sirin Labs. The new features are made possible by the integration of Simplex payment processing into the device's Token Conversion Service. FINNEY now supports eight additional languages: German, Italian, Turkish, Romanian, Slovenian, Vietnamese, Hindi, and Tagalog. In addition, the functionality of reading QR codes has become better in the wallet. To use the new features of the crypto wallet, you just need to update the FINNEY Wallet app via Google Play.

Chairman of the Board of Sirin Labs Kenes (Kenes) Rakishev said that his company was the first to implement a cryptocurrency wallet in a mobile phone. Now Samsung Corporation is actively interested in it too. Recently, they announced that digital storage has been added to the budget models of smartphones of this company.

In April, Sirin Labs reported that user interest in the Finney device had dropped. In this connection, a quarter of the company's staff was laid off. It is reasonable as interest in crypto is as volatile as crypto, but the technology will not die out, Kenes Rakishev suggests.

Kenes (Kenges) was born on July 14, 1979 in Alma-Ata, Kazakh SSR in the family of state and public figure Rakishev Khamit.

In 2000, he received a law degree from the Kazakhstan State Law Academy. In 2002, he graduated from the T. Ryskulov Kazakh University of Economics. Kenes Rakishev is a graduate of the international business school Oxford Saïd Business School in the discipline of Advanced Management. As well as the holder of the London Business School certificate in the discipline Developing Strategy for Value Creation.
