Needham & Company, LLC hosted its Inaugural Blockchain & Bitcoin 1x1 Conference on June 6, 2016 at Needham’s San Francisco office. The conference featured 8 of the leading, top-tier companies in the emerging Blockchain and Bitcoin ecosystems. The conference presented a unique opportunity for select late-stage venture capital, private equity and strategic investors to conduct one-on-one meetings with executives of the Blockchain & Bitcoin companies that are partnering with and disrupting incumbent financial systems and service providers. As one of the most transformative segments of the FinTech market, the rapidly emerging Blockchain & Bitcoin industry has raised over $1 billion in recent years—and after a flurry of product development, these companies are entering their next phase of growth and adoption with some vying for public markets and others raising significant financing rounds. Attending companies included leading consumer payments applications, mobile digital currency wallets, a blockchain transaction processor, a digital currency exchange, and an identity solution provider.
