Etch :: Etherparty :: Swarm :: Indorse :: Aventus


London FinTech Week ( off on July 10th and well be hosting Coinscrum {Blockstars} to coincide with all the activity on 12th July at Rise London ( (Shoreditch) to showcase some exciting new blockchain projects.
Etherparty ( is an easy to use smart contract wizard that lets users build smart contracts with simple buttons and functions. No coding, programming or developing involved. With Etherparty you can create everything from a simple peer to peer escrow contract, to complicated supply chain management. You can even create your own Ethereum token, crowdfunding contract, and run an ICO all on Etherparty.
Etherparty bridges the gap from the technology to users by providing an easy to navigate UI, contract libraries and built in oracles. Kevin Hobbs, CEO of Etherparty will be walking us through his teams vision
Etch ( is a shared financial ledger for the construction industry to make “real time payment” and “straight through payroll” a reality. Etch founder, Euros Evans (@euros) career has been an overlap of both construction and technology. As a first year building studies student he launched the first online “real estate” website. This was the spring of 1993! He later went on to study architecture at East London University, and then worked for a practice in Chester. Due to the years of working on building sites with his dad, his role at the practice was very hands on – signing off and approving payments for contractors. Disputes over work done, was, and still is, the main source of conflict in the construction industry. Fast-forward twenty years and the technology is here now to help ease this pain. And this is what Euros and his team are building. Community Manager, Ben Whyte and engineer, Joshua Richardson will be telling us more about their motivation and objectives.

Swarm Fund ( is building a $100B+ asset corridor bridging old world finance with new crypto opportunities. Their market infrastructure allows funds to automate creation, fundraising, deployment, distribution, and reporting via an enhancement of smart contract technology called “state boxes.”
They launch with multiple partner funds (distressed real estate, art, renewables, hedge funds) who have already deployed $100mm+ with 30+% IRR and managing partners who have managed $10B+ in portfolios.Their infrastructure is fully accessible and over time will be entirely governed by its community members. They use a token-based stake-weighted liquid democracy system to provide both an early adopter incentive and long-term input vector (voting). Additionally, members get access to new deal opportunities before anyone else, such as our affiliated Ethereum Alpha crypto hedge fund. CEO, Joel Dietz will be on stage to tell us more.
