  • This year’s conference is the sixth for d10e, it’s obvious that the focus of the event has been changing over the years.

    Matt McKibbin explains:

    “The event has definitely evolved over the six editions put on around the world. The first three were mainly focused on Bitcoin and its associated companies as that was most of the industry around Blockchains and decentralization. Since then, we decided to include other areas such as the sharing economy, the gig economy and disruptive culture, which we felt were having a huge impact on the world and not being given enough of the spotlight.”

    “Bucharest is currently having the biggest protests in a decade because the government was decriminalizing corruption. With systems built on Blockchains, corruption is much easier to see and the information cannot be tampered with. Corrupt officials must be transparent as they cannot go back and erase.”
