London Blockchain Conference 2023: BSV blockchain powers entrepreneurs, businesses, and countries

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The London Blockchain Conference (LBC) was a three-day event held from May 31 to June 2, 2023. Preceding the conference was a preliminary event called the Block Dojo and BSV Blockchain Association Spring Party held at Drake & Morgan in King’s Cross. This gathering provided a fantastic opportunity to socialize and meet new people before the main conference commenced.

The conference aimed to showcase real-world applications and enterprise-grade technology built on the BSV blockchain. It featured insightful presentations and panel discussions on how the BSV Blockchain is empowering enterprises and industries, as well as exploring future possibilities.

The lineup of speakers and presentations at the conference was truly impressive. Many individuals were working on groundbreaking projects, and I had the privilege of personally meeting, shaking hands with, and chatting with them. You can find links to the presentations at CoinGeek and on the London Blockchain Conference’s YouTube channel. In this article, I will highlight the projects of those I directly interacted with during the conference.

Impressive Presenters and Projects

Stephan Nilsson – CEO and Co-Founder of UNISOT
Nilsson explained the advantages of triple-entry accounting in their Web3 Supply Chain Traceability and Sustainability platform. One of their notable projects involved tracking and tracing seafood from when it was caught in the sea until it reached consumers’ plates. Today, their services extend to various agricultural industries and even construction.

James Belding – CEO of Tokenized
Belding and his team developed a tokenization and smart contracting platform that enables individuals, businesses, and governments to tokenize various assets. From discount coupons and event tickets to digital currencies and copyright licenses, Tokenized offers comprehensive solutions. They recently released their Tokenization software for desktops, and I plan to explore it in a future video.

Brendan Lee – Elas
Elas provides enterprise-level services to companies utilizing the BSV blockchain. Their offerings include software development, blockchain APIs, and blockchain consulting to help businesses integrate blockchain technology into their models and processes.

Individuals, businesses, governments, and organizations can leverage this platform to create smart contracts, which are increasingly becoming essential in the future of business.

Jessica Jaume – Gate2Chain; Dr. Agata Slater – IBM
I also watched a presentation by Jessica Jaume, Operations and Business Development Manager of Gate2Chain; Dr. Agata Slater, Blockchain Strategy Consultant of IBM; and Patryk Walaszczyk Blockchain Solutions Expert at IBM. They talked about using the BSV blockchain for working with Certificates of Authenticity, Digital Twins of physical products, Ownership Guaranties and other solutions for companies concerned with theft, fraud, and brand protection.

Discussions on regulation

One commendable aspect of the conference was its open discussion about a topic many in the ‘cryptocurrency’ community tend to avoid: regulation.

Recognizing the importance of regulatory discussions for widespread adoption and trust, the conference brought in experts such as Yves Mersch, Former Executive Board Member of the European Central Bank and Former Governor of the Central Bank of Luxembourg. They shared insights on regulating digital currencies in Europe. Additionally, a panel discussion featured Marcin Zarakowski, Executive Committee Member of the BSV Blockchain Association, actor and author Ben McKenzie, and Bryan Daugherty, Global Public Policy Director of the Bitcoin Association.

The Philippine government using BSV blockchain

As I have emphasized before, BSV blockchain has the potential to transform the world, leading to prosperity for countries that embrace it. The Philippine government, for example, recognizes the efficiency and cost advantages that the BSV blockchain offers. They have pioneered the use of blockchain solutions in government processes, starting with the province of Bataan. Once the economic benefits and operational advantages become evident, we can expect these solutions to extend throughout the country.

Meeting Innovators and Entrepreneurs

During the conference, I had the pleasure of meeting several pioneers and entrepreneurs who were funding their projects with their own time, money, and passion. These individuals were exploring and innovating using the power of BSV blockchain. Let’s highlight a few:

Ordinals: David Case and Luke Rohenaz – 1SatOrdinals.com and Aym.World
David and Luke, and their team are developing technologies and websites related to Ordinals in BSV blockchain. Using BSV, ordinals allow the transfer of creative works, such as artwork, songs, articles, and contracts. This revolutionary concept enables the ownership and transfer of digital assets with ease and proof of transfer. Stay tuned for a separate video where we will explore 1satordinals.com and Aym.World and interview the project leaders.

John (Jack) Pitts – SLictionary.com
Jack is the co-founder of SLictionary.com, the world’s first English dictionary ecosystem. What sets this dictionary apart is that users themselves define the words instead of relying solely on academic definitions. This approach ensures that experts in specific fields provide accurate and relevant definitions. If you possess expertise in any area, I encourage you to define a word on SLictionary.com. If your definition is chosen, you will receive perpetual rewards in Bitcoin SV.

Jerry David Chan – Frobots.io
Jerry David Chan just launched a new website called Frobots.io which is a website developed to educate children and adults alike disguised as a game, if I can put it that way. It is basically a fun way of learning.

Exploring new horizons

In addition to interacting with individuals already familiar with BSV blockchain, I had the opportunity to meet those who were curious and eager to learn more about Bitcoin, BSV, and digital assets. Let’s briefly mention a few of them:

Anastasiya Paitra – Mifort.com
Paitra, the Chief Operating Officer at Mifort.com, a web and mobile development company, attended the conference to explore opportunities in blockchain. She aims to collaborate with businesses working with blockchain technology.

Conclusion

The London Blockchain Conference 2023 was an event filled with opportunities to connect, learn, and explore the potential of the BSV blockchain. The projects and discussions showcased the real-world applications of BSV and emphasized its ability to transform businesses and industries. As the only Bitcoin project adhering to the original vision of Satoshi Nakamoto, the BSV blockchain stands out as a blockchain that scales for true enterprise and governmental use. Consider how the BSV blockchain can provide advantages, efficiency, and cost savings in your personal life, business, field, or organization, and join the growing number of people and organizations using the powers of BSV.
