Peter Schiff and ‘Gotham’ actor Ben McKenzie join London Blockchain Conference

The London Blockchain Conference has announced two new additions to the list of elite speakers at the upcoming event: Hollywood actor Ben McKenzie and renowned financial commentator Peter Schiff.

The three-day conference will kick off on Wednesday, May 31, at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in London. It will focus on enterprise blockchain adoption, highlighting how the infinitely scaling BSV blockchain is transforming applications across the enterprise and government sectors.

The event already boasts a list of 150+ elite speakers, including Dr. Craig Wright, IPv6 Forum President Latif Ladid, and nChain executive chairman Stefan Matthews. It has now added two elite speakers to the list who will delve into regulations and blockchain utility in the gold sector.

McKenzie is known for his leading role on ‘The O.C‘ before he went on to star in shows like ‘Southland‘ and ‘Gotham.’ During the pandemic, he ventured into ‘crypto,’ and after some research, he realized that the industry is a pitfall of rug pulls and pump-and-dump schemes. He has been working on exposing the scammers and has partnered with journalist Jacob Silverman on a book, “Easy Money: Cryptocurrency, Casino Capitalism, and the Golden Age of Fraud,” set to be released in July.

McKenzie will talk about how regulations can protect digital currency investors at a time when major companies in the sector have collapsed over the past year.

Schiff is a BTC critic who has been calling out ‘crypto’ for years over the lack of utility. At the event, he will switch gears to talk about how blockchain can impact the $12.8 trillion gold industry.

“If I’m transferring tokenized gold on a blockchain that is a lower cost than the price to transfer gold now, then blockchain technology has a use case,” Schiff commented.

The London Blockchain Conference will feature dozens of sessions on two stages—one focused on technical topics and the other on business topics—delving into Web3non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the metaverse, tokenization, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), regulations, enterprise adoption and more.

You can grab your tickets and be part of the experience or livestream the entire three-day event from the comfort of your home.
