Blockchain Partners with the Bitcoin Foundation for DevCore London

Blockchain is proud to announce the title sponsorship of DevCore London in partnership with the Bitcoin Foundation. This will be the first event of its kind in Europe. We are honored to host the top Bitcoin thought leaders in the FinTech capital of the world to lead sessions on the challenges and opportunities for the Bitcoin community.

DevCore is a series of workshops designed by developers for developers to help anyone interested in deepening their technical expertise to support the future development of Bitcoin Core.

Blockchain provides one of the most widely used developer API toolsets in the ecosystem, which tens of thousands of developers, and over a thousand companies have used to build Bitcoin apps. Blockchain supports standard libraries including Node.Js, Python, Java, .NET (C#), Ruby, and PHP.

Standing behind developers is what we do and we’re excited to support this initiative.

The event will feature a keynote presentation by Gavin Andresen entitled, “Why We Need A Bigger Chain.” There will also be feature presentations by Matt Tuzzolo, Lead Developer of Blockchain, Mike Hearn, Founder of Lighthouse, pro bono legal consulting sessions for start ups, exhibits and networking opportunities.
