The growing influence and scope of blockchain technology show no signs of slowing down thanks to the innovative minds who continue to drive the industry forward. We are lucky to have several of these experts speak at the Genesis London Conference. We will tackle the most pertinent issues in blockchain space: research and development, regulation, economics and applications. There may not be a panacea to all of these challenges, but if there is one to be found — it will probably be at Genesis London!

Genesis London is a platform for researchers, developers and generally anyone interested in blockchain. Our priority is to share knowledge, facilitate productive discourse and filter out the hype.
