Here's a profile of participants:


Ethereum is the most prominent of the "Bitcoin 2.0" projects taking blockchain technology beyond the confines of currency. It wants to use the technology to build decentralised applications that can run autonomously. The fact that these applications will run on the blockchain rather than any single computer will make it far more difficult — if not impossible — to shut them down.

Instead of chasing VC funding, it has crowdfunded $15 million to support the project.

Another notable outfit is Counterparty, a similar project that aims to build decentralised applications — though on top of the existing bitcoin blockchain, rather than a new one as Ethereum attempts. The two companies have repeatedly traded barbs, with both building the others' project on top of their own as proofs of concept.

Jeremy Bonney , CEO CoinDesk

CoinDesk is a cryptocurrency-focused news site, and since its launch in May 2013 it has grown to become one of the largest and most respected sources of information about the industry. 

The news site is based in London and has 14 employees.

Founded in 2011 by Ben Reeves, Blockchain (the company) offers users an easy way to explore the blockchain (the technology), such as a tool to let shopkeepers accept bitcoin. Instead of a central bank auditing transactions, bitcoin relies on a distributed network shared between its users — everyone holds a public ledger of every transaction carried out using bitcoin, which are then checked against one another to ensure accuracy. This ledger is called the blockchain, and Blockchain lets users examine it and follow the flow of any bitcoin.

In addition to this explorer, they also offer a wallet service for holding users' bitcoins. In October 2014, it raised $30 million in venture capital funding, then the largest ever for a bitcoin company, and it's seeing 20,000 to 30,000 new sign-ups for its services every week.

The company is based in London.

Nicolas Cary, Co-Founder of Blockchain will be joining the panel discussion.
