On January 31, 2020, over 400 civil servants, industry, and academics leaders will convene at the U.S. Capitol to talk about blockchain and cryptocurrency. They will be part of a global event series called The Future of Money, Governance, and the Law. The event will feature speakers from international organizations like the World Bank, national leaders from the US Congress, and state/local leaders who have implemented blockchain technology in the public sector for uses like voting. The private industry will be represented by over 100  blockchain companies ranging from small, leading-edge blockchain companies to industry giants like IBM.

This event is free. But, space is limited. Register for the onsite event at the Event Registration page or attend it virtually for a small fee at the GBA Virtual Expo Registration page.

The all-star lineup includes innovators, business leaders, and government administrators, regulators, legislators, and executives. Government leaders will learn from industry & technology titans including:

  • Timothy Draper, regarded as one of the most successful venture capitalists in the world, and one of the most powerful and influential people in Silicon Valley. His most prominent investments include Baidu, Hotmail, Skype, Tesla, SpaceX, AngelList, SolarCity, Ring (company), Twitter, DocuSign, Coinbase, Robinhood (company), Ancestry.com, Twitch, Cruise Automation, and Focus Media. In July 2014, he received wide coverage for his purchase at a US Marshals Service auction of seized bitcoins from the Silk Road marketplace website. Draper is a major proponent of Bitcoin and decentralization.
  • Scott Stornetta, one of the founding fathers of blockchain technology, co-authored the first mention of a blockchain architecture in a 1991 publication. Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper, “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System,” cited Stornetta’s work three times out of the eight references. The famous industry-defining white paper was essentially built on Stornetta’s concepts about disrupting the fintech industry, as he has thought about blockchain technology for the last thirty years.
  • Daniel Larimer is one of the leading innovators, engineers and thought leaders in the blockchain space. He is the co-founder of an array of successful blockchain companies, most notably the decentralized exchange BitShares, the social media network Steemit, and Block.one, publisher of the EOSIO protocol, all of which provide industrial- and enterprise-grade blockchain solutions utilizing the widely-adopted Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS) consensus mechanism, which he invented. Recognized as an industry pioneer, Dan is one of the most high-profile figures in the blockchain arena, having garnered a decade’s worth of entrepreneurial and technical experience in the field. At Block.one, he is the lead architect behind the EOSIO software, which is engineered to run highly scalable blockchain applications. He is an alumnus of the Virginia Tech Department of Computer Science, where he currently serves as a guest lecturer and curriculum advisor.
