Simon is currently building things at Inves Capital and Phantom Design, hosts a weekly technology radio show on 5FM and speaks at events about blockchain and cryptocurrencies, design, business trends, and innovation. He was part of the teams that built 22seven, the Curve Smartcard, Luno and is author of the book In Math We Trust.


Money is the most important invention after language.

It provides tokens for the faith we have in each other and society – but that trust has been violated repeatedly throughout history by the middlemen and authorities we rely upon in order to transact with each other. Now a new kind of money promises to rescue us from these tyrants and return us to the roots of money, without relying on third-parties.

Instead of putting our faith in banks and governments, we can trust math.

In Math We Trust looks at the evolution of trust, explaining the origins of Bitcoin, how cryptocurrency works, and how you can use these networks to take control of your own financial universe.

Q&A Sessions
These are currently the most popular sessions where the actual presentation is kept down to a few minutes and Simon then fields a discussion with the audience, allowing the conversation to take on a life of its own and filling gaps with short demonstrations, like how to set up a Bitcoin wallet in seconds or quickly develop your own automated workflows on your phone, and presentations, such as a 5-minute overview of the top trends currently shaping the future of money.

In Math We Trust
A keynote presentation on the topic of Simon's book In Math We Trust that looks at the origins and dynamics of cryptocurrency, debunks myths surrounding Bitcoin and blockchains, and outlines what the new era of money means for you and your business. In it you'll learn where money comes from, how trust has evolved and what it means for people to become their own bank.

Simon is also a popular speaker on design thinking and innovation, and will tailor his talks to your event.
