CoinSummit kicked off at the East Wintergarden in London’s financial district, Canary Wharf, today. The bitcoin confab is pitched as the place for serious players in the emerging cryptocurrency economy to talk shop.
The space, a large, split-level glass vault, provided a suitably transparent backdrop to an event largely dedicated to conversation about transparency and other pertinent issues.
The first half of the two-day event featured 10 panels and keynotes, plus a slot for startups to pitch the assembled investors, media and fellow entrepreneurs.Roger Ver
The man dubbed ‘bitcoin Jesus’ kicked off the conference with his keynote speech ‘The Future Is Ours’ – an appropriately grand title. Ver began by asking the crowd who among them were “bitcurious”, or who wanted to learn more about bitcoin.
