About

Yves Bennaïm - Bitcoin & Blockchain & Japan

Hello, I’m Yves Bennaïm, a Swiss scholar, writer, and essayist.

After nearly 30 years of Internet pioneering, I have become since 2011 an authority in Bitcoin and its Blockchain, specifically regarding their societal and political impacts.

I founded and currently chair 2B4CH, a think tank and industry advocacy group assisting industries and governments in harnessing Bitcoin and Blockchain technologies, as well as cryptocurrencies and cryptoassets.

Since 2017, I write the Bitcoin and its Blockchain column in Swiss business magazine Bilan. I am also the author of the Swindles in the World of Cryptoassets column in daily Swiss newspaper Le Temps.

Shortly after its creation, I joined CEN and ISO technical committees for the standardisation of Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT), where I chair as lead expert for Switzerland.

Deeply interested in ideas worth spreading, I started and curated TEDxGeneva in 2009 & 2010.

Le Temps newspaper published a portrait (in French).
