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).
