Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales to speak at CoinGeek London

CoinGeek London is coming in just a couple of weeks, and promises to live up to the outstanding reputation and popularity that all CoinGeek conferences have found. The upcoming event scheduled for February 20-21 at Old Billingsgate is going to see participation from a number of important players in various sections of business, technology and finance and now has a new name to add to the list.

Jimmy Wales, the co-founder of Wikipedia, is going to be on hand as a keynote speaker, a tie-in to the power that the Bitcoin SV (BSV) blockchain can offer for transparent and genuine information. 

The Internet is being plagued with massive amounts of fake news and misleading data that makes it more difficult than ever to distinguish legitimate information from the false, and Wikipedia has been working to reverse this viral activity.

Having Wales as a keynote speaker of CoinGeek London is going to be a huge success, allowing him to discuss his vision for the continuing struggle to fight the proliferation of fake news on the web, as well as how to continue to clean up all online data. Tying in a possible transition to blockchain storage for data is something that is certainly going to come up during his presentation. 

Bitcoin Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen, who is hosting CoinGeek London, says of the addition of Wales, “This is our 5th and biggest conference to date, with over 800 expected delegates and media. Having Jimmy Wales joining us is a huge privilege and will offer a fascinating insight in one of the most talked-about phenomenon of recent years, fake news and the need for more reliable online information.  We, certainly feel that BSV might well have solutions to offer, so let’s have that conversation in London!”

In addition to Wales, participants of the conference will also be able to hear from Dr. Craig Wright, the man who started it all with Bitcoin. Additionally, Tom Lee of Fundstrat Global Advisors will be speaking at the event, as will George Gilder, the best-selling author and economist who penned Life After Google and The Scandal of Money
