Bas Wisselink

Bas Wisselink thinks blockchain technology is thrilling, but he believes it can only grow by constant questioning. He gets excited by questions and problems, and actively seeks them out. He has been active in the blockchain space since 2013, when he spend two sleepless weeks during his Christmas holidays after discovering both the technology and its community. Today, he’s an active speaker and blogger about blockchain technology. His aim is to always leave the audience with food for thought. Do not expect him to hype a product, but expect him to make you love discovery. Blockchain technology is usually only discussed out of time. We look at it and discuss it as if it exists in a vacuum. What a lot of people do not know is that it has a rich history and a lot of the groundwork was actually laid right here in Amsterdam. Bas Wisselink can dive with you into the history and underpinnings of this movement and hopes to shed some light on how the blockchain came to be what it now is. To understand the problem is to understand the solution.
