Global Blockchain Speakers
It was great to see a large number of innovative projects and topics focused on the blockchain. The festival attracted thought-leaders like Gil Penchina, a Silicon Valley investor. Penchina invested in Paypal, Ripple, Brave, Civic, EOS, Simple Token, Polymath and many other FinTech businesses. He was an early cryptocurrency adopter and investor, and also one of the most active angels on AngelList. Amanda Gutterman, the CMO of ConsenSys, also attended. ConsenSys is a foundry to develop decentralized services and applications operating on the Ethereum blockchain. She hosted a panel with Jim Jorgensen (Consumer Coin), Paul Claudius (BlockState) and Gil Pechina about emerging trends in crypto.
