Last Friday, we hosted a very special event to bring IoT & Blockchain closer together. Our 'Happy Hour' was hosted at Factory Berlin's Rheinsberger Strasse HQ and featured leading speakers from NBT and blockchain venture production studio, Consensys.
The night began with an introduction from NBT Co-founder, Michael Bommer where he discussed how exploration at the intersection of IoT & Blockchain will drive the greatest new innovations for a better world. After Michael's introduction, our CEO Harald presented the history of NBT and the track record of its leaders. He shared how we're shaping the IoT ecosystem in Europe and how we help entrepreneurs and industry partners to build great IoT companies. Founder of Consensys Capital, Andrew Keys, was up next. He explained the history of blockchain, what Consensys does, and announced how Consensys and NBT are partnering on new projects. The first of which is supporting our blockchain venture, weeve, founded by Harald and senior cryptography professor from the University of Flensburg, Sebastian. Following Andrew's insightful presentation, Sebastian came to the stage to present weeve and what it will do to economize the IoT. After the initial presentations, all speakers came to the stage to answer a series of grilling questions from the audience about IoT security, the future of Blockchain, and much more.
Big thanks to all of the speakers for their insights and to everyone who came. For those of you that missed it, here's a sneak peek from the night. And stay tuned to our YouTube channel for the full talks coming soon.
