The City of London has perhaps the world's best opportunity to build a progressive and reputable ecosystem with its history as a world leader in banking and financial services and its position as Europe's foremost technology hub.
To build a successful blockchain ecosystem both IT and financial sectors are required. London is rare in that it has globally-recognised expertise and excellence in both - even in America this necessary expertise is split between the East and West Coast cities of New York and San Francisco.
Nowhere else will you find the depth and scale of financial services available alongside the tech innovation being incubated and encouraged than in London. We anticipate London will be a global digital asset hub by 2025. To that end, we published a state of the nation report with the UK Parliament APPG on Blockchain with the Big Innovation Centre and Deep Knowledge Ventures.
