Blockchain is one of the hottest topics in virtually (no pun intended) every industry of the modern age. Whether you’re well-versed in all things cryptocurrency or curious about learning more, you won’t want to miss this highly anticipated panel led by expert Joseph Lubin. He’s the co-founder of Ethereum, a blockchain computing platform, and founder of Consensus Systems (ConsenSys), a blockchain venture studio.
Lubin has held positions as Director of the New York office for Blacksmith Software Consulting and VP of Technology in Private Wealth Management at Goldman Sachs. Through these posts, Lubin focused on the intersection of cryptography, engineering, and finance. He then switched gears to work on projects in the music industry before co-founding the Ethereum Project. He’s been working on Ethereum and ConsenSys ever since.
