Former UK PM Boris Johnson to be keynote speaker at major blockchain symposium

Boris Johnson, a former United Kingdom Prime Minister will be the keynote speaker at this year’s International Symposium on Blockchain Advancements (ISBA), the organiser ParallelChain Lab has announced.

According to ParallelChain Lab, the Rt. Hon. Boris Johnson will be the featured keynote speaker at the blockchain event set for 2 December 2022.

The two day event will be held in Singapore and will also see Dick Cheney, the 46th Vice President of the United States, attend as a keynote speaker.

Former PM is renowned globally for his support for innovation

Johnson was the UK Prime Minister between 2019 and 2022, and was also the Mayor of London. Mr Johnson is a globally renowned leader with great input across the education, technology and infrastructure sectors. 

Indeed, the ex-PM’s tenure saw several positive developments across the UK crypto ecosystem.

Many of the reforms to align the crypto sector with the financial sector amid plans to make the UK a global crypto hub in his government were also pushed by current UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who is viewed as more crypto-friendly. Sunak was part of the former PM’s cabinet as Chancellor of the Exchequer.

ISBA 2022 is an inaugural event, as the organiser notes on their website, which targets at bringing to the fore blockchain platforms as the core of the digital infrastructure.  The global event will focus on the role of blockchain technology in the path to a digital economy.

The main topic will be on interoperability across decentralised finance (DeFi) and centralised finance (CeFi) and will speakers, including technologists, blockchain industry leaders and venture capitalists share their views.
