Event description

Description

Eight years after the first blockchain was built, people are trying to apply it to procedures and processes beyond merely the moving of money with varying degrees of success. In effect, they’re asking, What other agreements can a blockchain automate? What other middlemen can blockchain technology retire? And how can Blockchain revolutionise other industries?

We have three brilliant speakers, exploring Blockchain technology at the forefront of its innovation:

VINAY GUPTA

Vinay Gupta is a technologist and policy analyst with a particular interest in how specific technologies can close or create new avenues for decision makers. This interest has taken him through cryptography, energy policy, defence, security, resilience and disaster management arenas.

He is the founder of Hexayurt.Capital, a fund which invests in creating the Internet of Agreements™. Mattereum is the first Internet of Agreements infrastructure project, bringing legally-enforceable smart contracts, and enabling the sale, lease, and transfer of physical property and legal rights.

He is known for his work on the hexayurt, a public domain disaster relief shelter designed to be build from commonly-available materials, and with Ethereum, a distributed network designed to handle smart contracts.

George is the CEO of Kryptonite1 pLC, a blockchain technology company that invests in blockchain start-ups and digital assets. George has been involved in Bitcoin and use-cases for blockchain technology for the past 6 years, and is a leading figure in the UK blockchain/cryptocurrency scene.
