Keynote is also thrilled to announce the launch of a new $6 million fund dedicated to supporting diversity and inclusion in the blockchain industry. The Keynote fund will ensure people from all fields are invited to play an active role in the development and evolution of the expanding industry.

Keynote’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, Moe Levin, commented:

“Digital currencies and blockchain, are intended to be democratizing and equalising”.
“Blockchain and cryptocurrency industries are looking to create work opportunities in a number of fields, and it’s really important the industry is representative of the global population. Diversity is the basis for collective achievement, and we, therefore, need more people to join the blockchain conversation.”

The event will take place in the extraordinary historical venue of Old Billingsgate – an architectural and cultural landmark in the heart of London. Situated on the North Bank of the River Thames, the former Victorian fish market is a Victorian Grade II listed building that’s been transformed into an elegant event space.

The evolution of the Old Billingsgate building represents London as a city of reinvention and provides the ideal backdrop for Keynote’s WBF: London 2018 event.
