In partnership with Bywire.

E-sports is set to become bigger than football, Augmented/Virtual Reality is popping up everywhere, and we are told Crypto-currencies and Blockchain are set to change everything.

This panel will host speakers from the cutting edge of new technological development to discuss what these things are and how we can put control of them in the hands of the many
