CoinGeek Conference

London Nov 2018

CoinGeek London was held in the City - London’s financial district -, a stone’s throw from the River Thames. Its venue was the former Mermaid Theatre, which had traditionally staged annual Christmas productions of Treasure Island.

So, a unique mix of big financial institutions, a river from which sailors circled the globe and the distant echo of possible treasure to be found. What could be more appropriate for the growing ambitions and increasing professionalism of the Bitcoin community - with dreams of finding treasure still allowed?

Dr. Craig Wright and Jimmy Nguyen spoke passionately about the future, reclaiming Bitcoin from its wayward recent past and redirecting it towards protocol stability and real utility. It was a call to action for developers and entrepreneurs that gave attendees a new confidence about what could be achieved, and a clear direction to pursue.

After-Party

Descending beneath the streets of Soho, conference-goers found themselves plunged into a 21st Century version of Dickensian London. We were at the circus, with acrobats throwing each other around, dwarves posing for selfies and fortune-tellers (predicting only the best of future fortunes).

As always, a good time was had by all. Even the dwarves said it had been a top gig.
