While outsiders’ interest in cryptocurrencies is often limited to their volatile prices, industry leaders will be debating a much wider agenda, including everyday uses of crypto, at a three-day conference in London at the end of November. Tickets can be bought with discount code “cityam20” on Eventbrite

The CoinGeek Week Conference will feature entrepreneurs who already accept Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in retailing. Among the speakers is Elizabeth White, whose New York business sells everything from art and jewellery to Lamborghinis - legendary symbols of success in the crypto world – all for crypto, including Bitcoin Cash.

If you can’t afford the luxuries offered by The White Company, you can try crypto at a more modest level by buying a beer. Martin Dempster of Brewdog will be explaining why the brewery and pub chain business now accepts Bitcoin Cash at its new Canary Wharf bar.

Alongside retailers, the conference day devoted to developers looks set to prove that there’s an idealistic side to the crypto vision. Michael Hudson of Bitstocks describes his London business as an “ethical investment brand”, which “seeks to give disadvantaged people and small enterprises better access to the financial system” - whilst also making money for its clients.

Leading speakers from the world of crypto will include Dr Craig Wright, chief scientist of the London-based blockchain research business, nChain, Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com and Ryan X. Charles, co-founder of Yours.org, a social network that pays Bitcoin Cash to the creators of popular content.

The final day of the conference looks to the future, and to the formation of the new bComm (for ‘Bitcoin commerce’) Association, which will allow the conversation to continue between merchants, developers, crypto miners and crypto exchanges.
