Calvin Ayre: London Blockchain Conference will showcase real blockchain tools
The London Blockchain Conference is about allowing people using enterprise scaling blockchains to solve real problems to converge, network, learn and chart the way forward: This is the message from Calvin Ayre, the producer of the three-day event.
Ayre was at the VIP media preview dinner for the upcoming conference, which brought together technology thought leaders and influencers, innovators and media for a taste of what’s to come. CoinGeek Backstage reporter Becky Liggero caught up with the entrepreneur on the sidelines of the event to talk about blockchain utility, exciting innovations in the blockchain space and the upcoming conference.

“Crypto should get out of the way and let blockchain solve real problems,” Ayre said.
For over a decade, BTC and ‘crypto’ have been the face of blockchain despite having no real-world utility. It is time for the world to look beyond crypto and discover the real utility of the underlying technology, he added.
The London Blockchain Conference is born out of the popular CoinGeek conferences held in Zurich, New York, Dubai and other cities. Under its new brand, the event focuses on bringing government and enterprise applications to the blockchain.
The invitation-only preview event was held at Searcy’s on the Gherkin in London. Guests were given a chance to meet, interact and network with some of the industry’s thought leaders led by nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright. They were also treated to a four-course tasting menu by Michelin-starred chef Ollie Dabbous. The twist: the key ingredients on their plates can be traced from source to plate with Gate2Chain’s Trace application.
“What I like about what the team has done here is that they’ve taken a very easy-to-understand application of this technology … you’re not thrown a whole bunch of stuff,” Ayre said.
Ayre also welcomes everyone to the London Blockchain Conference which starts on 31 May.
“We are committed to informing what this technology can do. Come and see for yourself.”
You can buy tickets for the conference here or live stream the entire event from home for free via the app.
