From the previously niche world of cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology has achieved increasing success in mainstream industries. Its growing influence and scope shows no signs of slowing down. This is primarily thanks to the developers, researchers, and just incredibly innovative minds who continue to drive the technology forward and shatter the myths around it. Several of whom we are honoured to have speak at the Genesis London Conference.

Genesis London is a platform for blockchain researchers and developers at the forefront of innovation, and generally anyone interested in one of the world’s most exciting technologies. Far from your typical blockchain conference - our priority is to share knowledge, facilitate productive discourse and filter out the hype.

So join us in a celebration of innovation, community and collaboration!
Eli Ben-Sasson
Professor of computer science at the Israel Institute of Technology, Eli Ben-Sasson is interested in the practical implementation of scalable proof systems for computational integrity and privacy and their application to decentralised systems and cryptocurrencies
Emin Gün Sirer
Associate professor at Cornell University and the co-director of the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts (IC3) at the university, Emin Gün Sirer is arguably one of the most important minds in the realm of blockchains and cryptocurrencies. In 2012 he created the cryptocurrency Karma, which was the first to utilise the proof-of-work concept and has been appropriately referred to as the precursor for Bitcoin
Jack Gavigan
