After his successful career as a professional athlete and trauma surgeon, Julian became a serial entrepreneur, blockchain expert, best-selling author and keynote speaker. As one of the most influential people in blockchain, Julian is a frequently invited speaker at global technology/FinTech conferences, government summits and blockchain conferences. He is a regular commentator in the media on current blockchain trends and the future of money.
Dr. Julian Hosp has broad expertise in the field of blockchain technology and its different applications. It is his mission to advocate blockchain to all stakeholders in society and help people all around the world to understand the concept and join the revolution.
He has recently published his best-selling book Cryptocurrencies Simply Explained to educate about the complex concept of a decentralized system in simple terms and has been selected by the European Union Blockchain Observatory and Forum as a contributor to the working group on use cases and transition scenarios to help shape EU regulations related to blockchain.
His talks are educational and at the same time entertaining and inspiring as he tells stories that stick and lessons he has learnt instead of raw facts that might be important but boring. Unlike most “experts” in the blockchain ecosystem without hands-on knowledge of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, he is not only educating people but is also building a successful company that gives him a whole new perspective.
In 2019 Julian founded his new company Cake DeFi that offers people the possibility to generate cashflow from their cryptocurrencies. Other than that he was named one of the top Blockchain and Cryptocurrency experts to follow by Influencive in 2017 and now also active as advisor on blockchain and ICO’s for working groups of the European Parliament in Brussels. He is a frequently invited speaker at global Tech/FinTech and Entrepreneurship events as well as a regular commentator in the media on current blockchain trends, the future of cryptocurrency and disruptive technologies.
