Who is Laurence Kirk?

"After a successful career developing financial applications in the City of London, I was captivated by the potential of blockchain technology. I moved to Oxford and set up Extropy.io, a consultancy working with start-ups in the UK and overseas, developing decentralised applications, and consulting on blockchain technology and cryptography.

I hold a Physics degree from Durham University and am currently taking an MSc in Software Engineering at Oxford University where I founded the Oxford Blockchain Society. I teach blockchain and cryptography workshops and give talks on Blockchain, Ethereum and Zero Knowledge Proofs at conferences worldwide."
