An Insider’s View on the Blockchain Ecosystem – with T. Glucksmann from Gatecoin


Bitcoin, Ethereum, ICO, Blockchain… These terms are getting more and more visible in the media but still represent concepts difficult to understand for many of us. The crypto-token (or currency) market has seen significant growth for the past few months, attracting ever more investors and innovators. Some of their questions are:

• What are the differences between the main crypto-tokens?

• How can the industry adapt to the new regulations and recent events?

• What is happening in the blockchain world outside of the speculative market? 

• What are the next major innovations?

• How to develop a career in the blockchain tech?

For this ApéroTalk, we’re happy to welcome Thomas Glucksmann, who has recently been speaking at the Tokyo Fin/Sum Week, to share his view on the rapidly moving blockchain industry and answer a few of the above questions.

ApéroTalk is our events series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk. 


• 7:00 pm – Door opens

• 7:30 pm – Talk and Q&A by Thomas

• 8:30 pm – Networking session
