Why are you here?
It all started with..
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
Bitcoin core protocol likely created by
a group in academia
The bitcoin blockchain experiment
- Protocol is free & open source
Creators profited from owning
bitcoins not the protocol
Has the experiment worked?
Bitcoin was / is an
experiment ‘ decentralised
monetary system’
It has succeeded & it has
failed
Major centralisation of
mining / 51% processing
China
Major centralisation of wealth
distribution
But it’s now a world of many Blockchain‘S’
Understanding blockchains
1. Distributed Ledgers
2. Un-Permissioned / Permissioned
3. Unique Digital Tokens
4. Smart Contracts
5. Cryptographically secured
6. Decentralisation / Disintermediation
7. Decentralised Autonomous Organisations
Paradigm Shift: The Phase of Web
• Today trust is managed by intermediaries
• Blockchains have trust inbuilt
• Are ‘trustless’ or ‘trustfull’
• That removes friction
• That improves liquidity
• That equals growth in trade especially cross-
border
Blockchains, what are they good for?
1. Secure digital assets value
2. Secure 3rd party data
3. Automate manual tasks
4. Remove trust barriers
5. Expedite processes
6. Enable true p2p marketplaces
7. Secure supply-chains
Blockchain as accelerator & combinator
When is a blockchain appropriate + Limitations today
1. Smart contracts are only as good as their
connection to the real world
2. Legal state of smart contracts unclear:
3. Limited capacity / performance: smart contracts
are extremely limited in storage and speed.
4. Usable security and identity: giving end users
autonomy over their data comes with
responsibility.
5. Slow evolution of capability so far..
Agenda
(7:00 to 7:20) Introduction to blockchain technology
(7:20 to 7:40) Investment to date

(8:30 to 10:00) Live Pitches
$1 Billion in Bitcoin & Blockchain Infrastructure
(end of 2015)
Silicon Seed (50 VCs & 30 Angels)
The blockchain is the
most important innovation
since the Internet itself
Specialist Generalist
Blockchain invest lags behind Bitcoin
The Valley's got a lot riding on
Bitcoin..
2nd Half of 2015 Funding by Region
Total Funding by Country $m
Where are we in the hype?
Big investments: Circle & 21inc
VC Deal Size Declining
Internet VC investment did the same
Total VC Investment & Average Deal Size Dropped
Blockchain VC Investment Growth Decline in line
with general
Where are the next start-ups innovating?
Size of new ventures
How have they been funded?

Predictions: $10 Billion Will Be Invested in 2016
@leashless My view:
•That isn’t necessarily from the same
people going to same places as pre
’16
• More Northen Europe and Asia
(particularly China)
• More from Corporates both venturing
& internal
• Capital Markets, Insurance, Health &
Govt

‘BaaS’ & Professionalisation of Industry
Gray indicated the plan is for the
Azure BaaS platform to scale up
into a "certified blockchain
marketplace" by this spring and
that, at this stage, the technology
providers undergo a more
serious security vetting.
“For our clients,
understanding new world
applications of Bitcoin
and blockchain
technology, adapting it for
myriad uses, and using it
optimally are critical to
improving financial
security, efficiency and
compliance,” said PwC
FinTech Co-Leader
Haskell S. Garfinkel.
Rubix will help or allow
you to prototype, test,
and build your own
customized blockchain
and smart contract
application for any use
case.
Capital Markets & R3 Consortium
42 banks including JP Morgan, UBS, HSBC and Barclays.
Consortiums for regulated markets
Insurance Ledger
• BaaS sandbox to experiment with one
another alongside internal programs
"Blockchain has the potential to improve the
way insurers record risk, increasing the
speed, accuracy and transparency of our
processes. As part of the TOM consultation
we will be interested to see how blockchain
could help us resolve some of the
challenges facing our industry.”
Shirine Khoury-Haq (Lloyd's Director of
Operations)
Health Ledger
Interaction
• Largely around market efficiencies and then
into competitive innovations
Open Ledger for standards & governance
Accenture, ANZ Bank, Cisco, CLS, Credits, Deutsche Börse, Digital Asset Holdings, DTCC,
Fujitsu Limited, IC3, IBM, Intel, J.P. Morgan, London Stock Exchange Group, Mitsubishi UFJ
Financial Group (MUFG), State Street, SWIFT, VMware and Wells Fargo.
Bitcoin & Ethereum Corporate ‘Brain Drain’
$60 million
?
Entreprise Led Venturing (up to 20% of intake)
Santander
UBS
Barclays
Accenture
IBM
Citigroup & Visa
Cisco
1) Not enough experienced developers, with senior architect grade
backgrounds, to CTO projects
2) Not enough entrepreneurs exposed to blockchain beyond bitcoin or
financial services to connect dots. Means limited in scope and application
3) Further compounded by the pull of large consultancies and banks
feverishly mopping up talent generally.
4) Absence of an informed angel investor community so very VC and
corporate led
Today’s Industry Challenges
UK’s Setl: institutional payments & settlements
UK institutional payment & settlements
infrastructure
Deliver operational efficiencies and reduce
costs borne by savers & investors

marketplace
Surpluses can be traded from those
producing more energy than consuming
Testing in a Brooklyn community using
‘energy credits’ via ethereum
