Blockchain, the future of money | Nicolas Cary | TEDxManchester
People spend their entire lives in pursuit of money, but many individuals do not really understand what creates value. Nic's presentation will explore the history of money, look at recent historical technical and social trends, and look toward the future to better understand what the future holds.
Serial entrepreneur and technologist Nicolas Cary is the co-founder of the leading Bitcoin software company Blockchain.
Blockchain has over 8 million users, and announced an outside capital round of over $30.5million in 2014, raised from several leading venture capital firms. Nicholas travels the world speaking on the benefits of FinTech and entrepreneurial advocacy, and won the 2015 European Digital Leader of the Year award for his work.
Before spending a decade building and growing startups, Nicolas taught English and participated in poverty reduction programmes in rural India. He believes his journeys around the world have informed his work as a businessman and founder.
