Event Details

Blockchain is widely considered to be a once in a generation revolutionary technology. It is poised to fundamentally change the way we use the internet. Most people know it in it’s original form of a cryto-currency called Bitcoin, but it has since evolved into so much more.

This widely applicable technology is set to massively impact our financial systems, our approach to personal digital identities, our governments and much more. This panel discussion will bring together some of the most important figures in the blockchain community to talk about the past , present and future of the space.

Following our sold-out panel discussion in September, we'll be returning with a deeper dive into Blockchain technologies.
