Conference Chief Guest & Keynote Speaker
Buterin was born in Moscow, Russia and lived in the area until the age of six when his parents emigrated to Canada in search of better employment opportunities. While in third grade of elementary school in Canada, Buterin was placed into a class for gifted children and started to understand that he was drawn to math, programming, and economics. He also had the ability to add three digit numbers in his head at twice the speed of his peers. In 2012, he obtained a Bronze Medal in the International Olympiad in Informatics. He attended the University of Waterloobut dropped out to work on bitcoin full-time.
Bitcoin Magazine (2011-2014)
Beginnings at Bitcoin Magazine
In September 2011, Buterin would accept to be the first co-founder and contribute as a leading writer to a new publication called Bitcoin Magazine.
In addition Buterin had written about bitcoin-related topics for other publications, including Bitcoin Weekly. Bitcoin Magazinein 2012 later began publishing a print edition and has been referred to as the first serious publication dedicated to cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin Magazine was then purchased by BTC Media, where Buterin continued to write until mid-2014.
In addition, he held a position on the editorial board of Ledger, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes full-length original research articles on the subjects of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
He is a co-creator and inventor of Ethereum, described as a “decentralized mining network and software development platform rolled into one” that facilitates the creation of new cryptocurrencies and programs that share a single block chain (a cryptographic transaction ledger).
Buterin has contributed as a developer to other open source software projects. Some early examples are: Kryptokit, pybitcointools, multisig.info, and btckeysplit. He also contributed to DarkWallet by Cody Wilson, Bitcoin Python libraries, and the cryptocurrency marketplace site Egora.
Abhay Prasad Hota (TBC)
MD & CEO NPCI, National Payments Corporation of India Architect of India's biggest disruption - UPI - Unified Payments Interface (TBC)
Unified Payments Interface (UPI), launched in April 2016 by the NPCI,
is going live for 21 banks. A.P. Hota Ji spoke about UPI at Fintech Storm India Summit, Mumbai on 12 May 2016.
UPI offers instant, online bank payments, and is seen as a major change to the Indian financial sector. It enables banks to provide real-time payments through QR code enabled addresses and offers device fingerprinting for additional security.
Abhaya Prasad Hota, MD and CEO, NPCI, says: “Real-time sending and receiving money through a mobile application at such a scale on interoperable basis had not been attempted anywhere else in the world.”
For the last few months it has been on a pilot run mainly with employees and customers. After assessing the “success” of the pilot run, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) gave their final approval for the public launch.
NPCI decided that only banks with 1,000 pilot customers, 5,000 transactions and a success rate of around 80% would be permitted to go live. It says such a threshold criteria helped the banks to refine their systems and procedure.
