We partnered with some of the UK's leading Blockchain communities and thought leaders to bring together experts working with Blockchain and e-Identity for an evening to explore what e-Residency, e-Identity, and the Blockchain can do together. The event began with short talks from a panel, sharing their insights into Blockchain and e-identities, followed by attendees breaking into groups to hack new ideas around the topic.
Our panel included:
Kaspar Korjus is Managing Director of e-Residency in the Government of Estonia. At 27, Kaspar has overseen the introduction of e-Residency across government.
Lawrence Wintermeyer is the CEO of Innovate Finance. He has been an early supporter of Innovate Finance and is working towards growing the organisation to ensure the UK is at the centre of global FinTech innovation.
Tomasz Mloduchowski is a core developer at Credits where he provides insights on the impact that blockchain can offer to the finance and identity markets. Tomasz studied physics at MIT where he focused on computational physics and supercomputing. At Harvard, he audited a number of lectures at the Berkmann Centre. He is an alumnus of the Clinton Global Initiative University programme, and founder of the Warsaw Hackerspace, where he explored the NGO and local governance segment.
Urmas Peiker is Co-Founder of Funderbeam. A data startup based in Estonia, Funderbeam helps angels and entrepreneurs discover, benchmark, and analyse startups at a low cost. Soon they will launch the world's syndication platform and aftermarket for startup investments, lubricated by data and secured by the blockchain.
