The Bitcoin hype may have died down, but the tech behind it definitely hasn’t. With Bitcoin’s price on the rise again, and with major companies adopting and experimenting with blockchain, the way we do business, make payments, and perceive the value of money is about to change.
As we find ourselves at the intersection of finance, business, and blockchain, it’s the perfect time to join forces with leading experts to shape the years to come. That’s why Hard Fork Summit, our annual event, is back for a second edition on October 15-17. Held in Amsterdam, we’ll host roundtables, panel discussions, keynotes, and networking sessions to discuss how blockchain is shaping financial services and business operations.
We already have several headline speakers confirmed, from leading companies like Consensys and Ripple. Here’s a taste of what to expect:
Kavita Gupta is a recipient of the UN social finance innovator award in 2015. She’s an integral part of the World Bank’s founding green bond team and founder of the World Bank’s first innovation fund. She leads the blockchain focus at Consensys VC — the VC hedge fund investing in next-generation blockchain technologies.
At last year’s Hard Fork event, Kavita spoke about the future of blockchain:
Dan Morgan is the Head of Regulatory Relations in Europe for Ripple. He works closely with central banks, governments, and financial regulators, discussing Ripple’s role as a fintech service provider. Dan previously worked as the Fintech Sector Specialist for the UK’s Department of International Trade.
With his extensive experience in fintech, regulation, and now blockchain, he’ll provide invaluable insight into the future of these industries, and how they’ll continue to work together.

Her goal is to support business success, educational development, and social innovation through her efforts. She’s been described as the ‘torchbearer for ethical tech,’ and advocates for using tech like blockchain for social good.
